The last few days have witnessed significant development in Bayern Munich’s pursuit of Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane. Bayern Munich had a second bid rejected for the English striker last week. Spurs chairman Daniel Levy reportedly met with Bayern Chiefs in London midway before the English club’s first team left for Australia.

Bayern’s first-team squad also travelled to Tegernsee for the first pre-season training camp of the summer. Along with the Bavarian club, Uli Hoeness was also present in Tegernsee. The former Bayern president confirmed the club’s interest in Harry Kane while talking to the media.

Hoeness went into great detail about the club’s pursuit of Kane. He believes that the transfer will happen if Kane sticks to his words of moving to Munich. It does confirm that Kane already has some sort of agreement on personal terms with the German Champions.

The comments from Hoeness on Kane have surprised club chiefs. According to Bild, Die Roten wants to complete the deal with the utmost respect for Spurs. The drawn-out transfer saga in the media will not go down well with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy. Considering Levy is a very tough negotiator, the last thing Bayern irritated him was by publicly talking about the Spurs striker.

Bild also reveals that club CEO Jan-Christian Dressen and technical director Marco Neppe met Levy in London. This meeting didn’t lead to negotiations for Kane, but it helped in establishing positive contacts with the Spurs boss.

Levy previously stood firm when it came to the transfer saga involving Harry Kane. Premier League champions Manchester City made a bid of more than £100 million for the English forward in 2021. Spurs rejected all offers from Man City and kept Kane. The England international tried to force a move by reporting late for pre-season, but it didn’t help Manchester City’s cause in the transfer saga.

Die Roten remains determined and confident about signing Kane from Spurs. However, it may take longer to get the English forward to Bavaria. As things stand, Kane will complete the pre-season tour with Spurs, provided there is no breakthrough in talks between both clubs.

Bayern is expected to face competition from Paris Saint-Germain for the signing of Kane. However, Daily Telegraph in England confirmed on Monday that Kane is not interested in a move to Paris. The Bavarian club has a clear run at one of the most prolific goalscorers in Europe unless an English club like Manchester United comes into the picture later this window. Die Roten needs to make sure that they don’t irk Daniel Levy to remain favourites to sign Kane.
