Journo: Bayern Munich links to Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane ‘make no real sense’
Bayern Munich have been linked with moves to sign both Harry Kane and Son Heung-min from Tottenham Hotspur.
Sport1 (h/t Football.London) stated last month that the South Korean is eager for a change of scenery with Bayern one of the clubs interested in him. The Bavarian’s interest in Kane is well documented and has gone on since the summer.
Football.London journalist Alasdair Gold was asked in a Q&A session if Spurs should cash in on Kane and Son if an offer from Bayern came in. His response was simple and one that a lot of Tottenham fans will agree with.
“No. You shouldn’t sell world class players. There’s rebuilding and then there’s removing two of the Premier League’s best from your team. Build around them with similar quality.”
He then added that the links to Bayern don’t make sense considering Kane has stated that he wants to stay in England and come after Alan Shearer’s record of 260 Premier League goals. Gold continued:
“Also, the Bayern links make no real sense to me with Kane. He’s already stated he doesn’t want to move abroad and he wants Shearer’s Premier League record.”
Kane has scored 195 goals in the English top division and the 24-year-old is on a contract that expires only in the summer of 2024 (Transfermarkt). Failure to renew that going into the 2023-24 season can raise a lot of insecurity within the Spurs camp.
If it does become clear that Kane isn’t eager to renew his deal, then alarm bells could start ringing at N17. The question then would be if Spurs want to utilise Kane’s services and let him leave for free, or cash in on him while they still can.

Hopefully, it doesn’t come to that. Gold is correct in saying that Spurs, if they do want to become a serious title contender, must keep quality players and add to it, rather than sell to raise money for other positions.
