The winter transfer window is set to be quiet for Bayern Munich, but plans have already been laid out for the summer window. Die Roten is set to go in the market for a striker next summer. It does look like Bayern has identified Harry Kane as the top target for this position.
Die Roten has reportedly held talks with Kane’s agent regarding a move to Bavaria. According to SportBild (via iMiaSanMia), Bayern has told Kane to halt contract talks with Tottenham Hotspur. The German club has communicated their desire to sign him and urged him to not sign a new deal in North London through an intermediary.
Kane is currently enjoying a good start to the season with Spurs. The English club is eager to keep their Premier League record scorer, but contract negotiations may get complex due to interest from Die Roten. Other clubs are also likely to join the race to sign Kane if doesn’t reach an agreement with Spurs for a new deal by the end of the season.
The English striker’s current contract at Spurs comes to an end in 2024. If he keeps rejecting contract offers, then Spurs may have to sell him next summer instead of losing him on a free transfer in 2024. It is understandable for Kane to deliberate over signing a new deal since this will be the last opportunity to get a big transfer in his career.
Despite his contract situation, Spurs will be able to command a significant fee for Kane. Spurs chairman Daniel Levy does a great job at negotiating big transfer fees for the club’s best players. Bayern will have to come up with a monumental bid to convince Levy and Spurs to part ways with Kane.
From a sporting point of view, a move to Munich will be very beneficial for Kane. Despite his exploits in the final third over most of the last decade, Kane is yet to win a major trophy in his career. The English forward will get the opportunity to win and compete for big trophies by moving to Bayern.

Kane will also seamlessly fit into Bayern’s team. The English forward has a great presence of mind in the box, while his linkup play and passing are second to none when we talk about the best strikers in the world. He will become the focal point of Die Roten’s attack and also help in getting the best out of other forwards around him.
There is still a long way to go in this possible deal to move Kane from North London to Munich. However, it does look like the interest from the German club is concrete. As they say, there is no smoke without fire. Bayern should gear up for a series of stringent negotiations if they are determined to sign Kane.
