Bayern Munich is placing significant emphasis on securing the signature of England’s captain, Harry Kane, from Tottenham, but as of Friday, the deal has not been finalized, according to remarks made by Thomas Tuchel, the manager of the German club.
Reports from the British media suggest that after weeks of negotiations, an agreement has been reached, and the 30-year-old striker is allegedly en route to Germany for a medical examination with Bayern.
A reported bid of 100 million euros ($110 million) for Kane was reportedly accepted by Tottenham on Thursday, leaving the decision to leave or stay with the player himself.
Various British media outlets indicated that Harry Kane, who holds the record for the highest number of goals scored in Tottenham’s history, was scheduled for a medical examination in Germany on Friday.
However, during a press conference, Bayern’s manager Tuchel commented that reporters “might be more informed than I am” regarding Kane’s current whereabouts and activities. Tuchel stated, “We’re putting in significant effort… that’s not a secret,” and he emphasized that the matter was receiving “utmost priority.”
Tuchel clarified, “Yet, as of now, no definitive decision has been reached. Until an agreement is in place, the coach won’t engage in discussions about it, as the player is not under his management.” Harry Kane’s contract with Tottenham has only one year remaining.
While he has not yet clinched a major championship, he seems poised to join Bayern, a team that has secured 11 consecutive Bundesliga titles.
Tuchel’s squad is set to commence their season against RB Leipzig in the German Super Cup on Saturday, while Tottenham is scheduled to face Brentford in their opening Premier League match on Sunday.
