Bayern Munich reportedly feel they can tempt Harry Kane to follow Sadio Mane away from the Premier League to the German champions, although maybe not this summer.

The German champions have secured one of the deals of the summer by snapping up former Liverpool star Mane. The Senegal international scored 120 goals in his six seasons at Anfield but decided he wanted a new challenge.

Bayern have also added ex-Ajax star Ryan Gravenberch to their midfield, with right-back Noussair Mazraoui another Ajax capture.

But despite those incomings, there is still a big cloud hanging over the future of star striker Robert Lewandowski. The Poland international wants to leave this summer, recently declaring his time at the club “over”.

Bayern have responded by insisting that he has one year left on his contract – and will try to keep him amid Barcelona interest. Still, Lewandowski does not look likely to extend his contract and so can likely offer Bayern one more season in their best-case scenario.

As a result, Kicker reports that the Bavarians are actively looking for a replacement. And they do not think a move for Tottenham star Kane is out of their reach.

Indeed, the German source claims that Bayern deem a raid for Kane ‘conceivable’ – although maybe not this summer.

He has two years left on his Tottenham contract, making the finances of a deal too costly for his German suitors as it stands.

Nevertheless, Kane is not leaving Spurs this summer and so will have only one year left on his deal next summer – unless he extends his terms again before then.

Bayern Munich eye Harry Kane transfer

Bayern want a Lewandowski successor who is already at the top level and needs no time to settle in. They therefore think England captain Kane fits the bill perfectly.

The 28-year-old celebrates his birthday later this month and looks unlikely to slow down any time soon.

He has scored 247 goals in 385 Tottenham appearances. What’s more, his 183 Premier League goals mean he is 77 behind the division’s all-time leading goalscorer Alan Shearer, on 260.

But first on the transfer priority list for Bayern is a move for Juventus defender Matthijs de Ligt.

They tried to sign the Dutchman in 2019 and despite his move to Italy from Ajax, he has kept solid relations with Bayern. Kicker claims that Bayern’s ambition for another big signing this summer after Mane is because of planned outgoings.

Tottenham star has thinking to do

Kane wanted to leave Tottenham last summer to sign for Manchester City in that particular transfer window’s most high-profile saga.

However, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy put his price tag at £150million, with three years left on his deal. City decided to wait and have instead signed Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland for around £85million.

But ahead of Kane’s future coming back into view, the landscape looks different.

In summer 2021, Nuno Espirito Santo was the Tottenham head coach after an agonising search by the club. Nuno came in after a turbulent end to Jose Mourinho’s tenure. Kane, sensing no real progress, wanted out.

Skip forward 12 months, though, and Antonio Conte has got Tottenham back on the right path.

They finished in the Premier League’s top four last season and so have Champions League football to look forward to again. It remains to be seen whether Kane, who is hunting the Premier League’s goal record, can be tempted away.
