Tottenham manager Antonio Conte has accused Bayern Munich of being “disrespectful” by publicly declaring their interest in Harry Kane.

Bayern manager Julian Nagelsmann has admitted he would love to sign Kane and has refused to rule out of a move for the Spurs striker.

The German giants are on the lookout for a replacement for Robert Lewandowski and their chief executive Oliver Kahn revealed this week that it would be a “dream” to sign Kane.

Speaking after Spurs beat Rangers 2-1 in a pre-season friendly at Ibrox on Saturday, Conte said: “Honestly I didn’t hear this. For sure I’m a coach that doesn’t speak about players from another team.

“The situation is very clear at Tottenham and Harry is a very important part of the project.

“Only rumours but I don’t like to talk about players from another club. If I want to do something I don’t do it through the media.

“Maybe that’s a bit disrespectful for the other club.”

Spurs made it clear last summer that Kane was not for sale amid interest from Manchester City and Nagelsmann admits Bayern are likely to be priced out of an immediate move.

But the England captain is in the final two years of his contract at Tottenham.

Standard Sport reported in May that Kane is happy at Tottenham and open to signing a new contract with the club.

The public interest from Bayern could press Spurs into talks over a new deal.
