Kane: Tottenham, Bayern advance talks

Tottenham and Bayern Munich have held talks over the signing of England captain Harry Kane, as the striker prepares to meet new Spurs boss Ange Postecoglou on Wednesday.

Dialogue remains open between the clubs but no deal is agreed and a huge difference of opinion exists around the valuation of Kane.

Sky Sports News understands Kane has not closed any avenue available to him, including staying in north London, but he would be open to formally speaking with the German champions should Spurs accept an offer.

Tottenham have made it clear they do not want to sell their record scorer and certainly won’t entertain the £70m figure Bayern are willing to pay.

Daniel Levy is reluctant to lose an elite goal scorer and continues to hope he’ll sign a lucrative new contract, but the fact Kane, 29, has one year left on his current deal may force him to consider a significant sum.

It’s the reason dialogue with Bayern remains open as fears grow Kane will join a Premier League rival next summer should he stay and run down his contract.

One thing that is clear is Tottenham will not sell to an English club in this transfer window, ruling out a move to Manchester United, with Erik Ten Haag shifting his focus to Denmark striker Rasmus Hojlund.

Kane returned to Tottenham training on Wednesday and will meet with new head coach Postecoglou. There will not be a repeat of two years ago when he was absent following attempts from Manchester City to sign him.

Postecoglou has made it clear he plans to shape a side that produces exciting, attacking football and would like Kane to be part of it.

Should he start the season in England it will give the club a chance to show him and other senior players that there can be a more positive outlook than recent years.

Bayern Munich believe Kane wants to join them and that appears to be his most likely destination if he departs in the coming weeks.

The England captain has scored 213 goals for Spurs and is the second-highest scorer in Premier League history behind Alan Shearer. He needs 48 more goals to break the record.

Kane scored an impressive 30 league goals last season in a side that finished eighth in the table.
