Harry Kane does not want to move to Paris Saint-Germain this summer and is only interested in a move to Bayern Munich.
It comes after the French champions have recently stepped up their attempts to rival Bayern to sign Kane, with Mail Sport reporting the club’s chief executive, Jan-Christian Dreesen, had met with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy last week.
The striker, who scored 30 goals in 38 Premier League appearances last season, has travelled with Ange Postecoglou’s squad to Australia for their pre-season tour amid much uncertainty around whether he will remain a Tottenham player beyond this summer.
PSG were interested in doing a swap deal with the London side that could see them offer emerging youngster Xavi Simmons plus cash for the striker.
But Kane is instead set on a move to Bayern Munich, who have now made two bids, with Levy holding out for over £100million for his prized striker.
Their latest was a £70m offer that is set to be rejected by the London outfit, who have placed a much higher valuation on their prized asset, that scared off the likes of Man united and Chelsea from signing him.
Bayern chiefs are adamant that Kane wants to move to the Bundesliga and were confident they would get him.
Despite being resigned to miss out on though, Man United are still being mentioned in the same conversations to sign him, and could reignite their interest if he decides to run his contract down at Spurs.
Should Kane depart the club, Tottenham will target Juventus’ Dusan Vlahovic as a replacement.
But they will face some stiff competition, with both Chelsea and PSG interested in the Serbian attacker.
Kane, meanwhile, returned to training last week and held talks with new manager Ange Postecoglou, who admitted that he had not heard anything from Bayern Munich on the forwards’ potential departure.
‘There are a lot of people that know Harry better than me but he’s not going to get fazed by anything,’ the Australian said. ‘He’s here and while he’s here, he’s totally committed to what we’re doing.
‘That’s that way I’ve seen things. In terms of me, it has zero impact on me. No one has spoken to me from Munich. If other clubs want to talk about our contracted players, that’s more of an issue for them than us.’
‘Just a good chat,’ he added when asked about how the conversation went. ‘Nothing earth-shattering or defining. I introduced myself, and we spoke mainly about the club and where he thinks it’s at, and where he thinks we can improve things.
‘It was more about the collective and what we’re doing. Me and Harry were perfectly aligned in that, we want to see a successful team this year.’
