Harry Kane wants to join Bayern Munich after holding talks with the Bundesliga champions, who have seen an opening offer turned down for the Tottenham Hotspur forward.
Bayern Munich have seen a proposal worth an initial £60m plus add-ons rejected, as the German giants look to sign a centre-forward this summer.
Thomas Tuchel has made Kane his leading transfer target as the club aim to fill the goalscoring void left by the sale of Robert Lewandowski to Barcelona last summer.
Kane has just a year to run on his contract at Spurs and the north Londoners risk losing the 29-year-old on a free transfer next summer. Despite that situation, The Guardian are reporting that Spurs will demand a fee of £100m for the club’s all-time record goalscorer.
It remains to be seen whether Bayern would meet that asking price, but there is a sense that a deal could be agreed for a lower fee given Kane’s contract situation and desire to move on.
Spurs could be open to accepting a lower offer from the Bundesliga side in order to ensure Kane does not move to a Premier League rival on a free transfer next summer.
Kane had reportedly been keen to remain in the Premier League, where he is the division’s second-highest goalscorer and 48 goals from breaking Alan Shearer’s record.
However, the England captain – who has failed to win a major trophy in his career to date – is understood to be open to a move to Bayern side who have dominated German football over the last decade and will be viewed as contenders for the Champions League next season.
