Spurs Transfer News: Bayern Munich director gives fresh verdict on Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane
There was interest in Kane this summer itself with Bayern manager Julian Nagelsmann and sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic giving their views on the striker. This even irked Spurs boss Antonio Conte, who said it is ‘disrespectful‘ to talk about players from other clubs.
It seems that the Bayern chief has taken the hint. As per comments passed on to German outlet Bild (h/t Fabrizio Romano), Salihamidzic said:
“For sure Kane is a top player in the world, but we don’t talk about players under contract at other clubs. I’m sure that Mathys Tel will also show what he can do this season.”
The speculation above a potential move is so rife that Kane was himself asked about their interest in him. To that, the England international replied before our 3-2 win against Eintracht Frankfurt at home (h/t the Athletic):
“For sure Bayern are a top, top club, but all my concentration is on Tottenham and trying to win tomorrow night.”
Kane has less than two years left on his current deal. If he doesn’t put pen to paper on a new deal and if Spurs bind him to his contract, then he could leave as a free agent in the summer of 2024.
However, Kane would now be at crossroads. If he wants to have it easy and get his hands on a few domestic titles, then a move to Bayern could help him achieve that.
If that is the case and if he doesn’t want to stay at Spurs, then it would be best for us to cash in on him as soon as possible. However, that should be our last resort.

Hopefully, Daniel Levy, Fabio Paratici and others make it a priority to tie down the 29-year-old to a longer contract. If we aim to transition into a club that challenges for titles every year like Liverpool or Manchester City, then we must retain our best player – at least for the next few years.
