Journalist shares what he’s now hearing from ‘sources close to Harry Kane’ about Bayern

Speaking on The Done Deal Show, Ben Jacobs has been discussing Harry Kane’s future and the interest shown in the striker from Bayern Munich.

The German giants have been strongly linked with a move for Kane over the past few months as they look to find a suitable replacement for Robert Lewandowski.

However, unfortunately for the Bavarians, Kane isn’t actually too open to a move to the Bundesliga.

Indeed, Jacobs says that Kane is not sold in the idea of playing in Germany, meaning that a deal isn’t looking incredibly likely.

Kane not keen

Jacobs shared what he knows about Kane’s view of German football.

“We know that Bayern Munich like Kane, but liking Kane and getting Kane are two different things. Tottenham are very calm about the situation and if anything it could be a Premier League rival that is more of a threat than Bayern because sources close to Harry Kane continue to tell me that he’s not sold on the Bundesliga,” Jacobs said.

Why would he?

Bayern Munich may well be an option for Kane in the coming months, but what reason does he have to join Bayern?

Yes, they’re all-but-guaranteed one trophy a season over in Germany, and while Kane is desperate for silverware, how much gratification would he actually get from winning a few Bundesliga titles?

Surely the idea of winning things in England and eventually breaking Alan Shearer’s all-time Premier League scoring record is more appealing to Kane.

As Jacobs says, a move to a Premier League rival may be more likely than a move abroad, but with Spurs improving over the past year under Antonio Conte, we can’t help but feel that Kane is destined to stay in north London.
