Bayern Munich make Kane declaration and leave transfer chiefs at home to get deal done


Bayern Munich have stepped up their efforts to sign Harry Kane from Tottenham.

The Bundesliga side want the top scoring striker and are preparing another bid for him, having had two turned down already.

Bayern have flown to Japan for pre-season training where they will play Man City in a friendly, but Jan-Christian Dreesen, the chief executive, and Marco Neppe, the technical director, have stayed in Germany to focus on prising Kane away from Spurs.

Herbert Hainer, the club’s president, believes signing Kane, who scored 30 Premier League goals last season, would boost the German league.

“Here in the Bundesliga we don’t have many international stars any more,” he told Kicker, a German football magazine.

“Bayern always try to bring in stars. Harry Kane is a highly attractive player, the England captain and a top scorer. He would do us and the Bundesliga good.”

Kane, who turns 30 in July, is out of contract next summer and Bayern appear determined to land him as well as Man City defender Kyle Walker.

Hainer and Michael Diederich, the chief financial officer, are in Japan where Walker is on a pre-season tour with City to work on luring him to Munich.

Asked about the split in bosses between Germany and Japan, manager Thomas Tuchel said of Dreesen and Neppe: “They are doing something that is necessary for them to do in Munich for us.”

Kane is valued at £100m and Tottenham owner Joe Lewis wants chairman Daniel Levy to sell him rather than lose him for free next summer.

Man United were interested in signing him, but talkSPORT understands they will not be making an approach for him this summer.
