Hoeness confident that if Kane leaves Spurs, Bayern will sign him

July 17 – Bayern Munich honorary president Uli Hoeness is confident England captain Harry Kane will join the Bundesliga champions this summer from Tottenham Hotspur.

Around this time every ear speculation intensifies that Kane – Tottenham’s most prolific striker of all time as well as England’s record marksman – may leave the club, who are not in Europe next season, to try and win trophies elsewhere.

Reports suggest Spurs chairman Daniel Levy and Bayern chief executive Jan-Christian Dreesen met in London on Thursday but that no meaningful progress was made.

“Harry Kane has clearly signalled in all conversations that his decision stands – and if he keeps to his word, then we’ll get him, because then Tottenham will have to buckle,” Hoeness was quoted as saying.

“Kane wants to play in Europe next season and luckily for us Tottenham will not be active internationally next year. He now has another opportunity to come to a top club in Europe.”

For their part, Tottenham will continue to try and persuade Kane to sign a lucrative contract extension. Kane, whose current deal runs out in a year, has not ruled out any option at this stage and was part of the Tottenham squad that departed for their pre-season tour to Australia and Asia.
