Harry Kane: Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy meets Bayern Munich over a potential sale of the England captain | Football news

During the meeting, no meaningful progress was made, but the dialogue is open; Spurs want to tie down Harry Kane to a new deal but are wary he could leave for a Premier League rival at the end of next season if he does not extend; Kane will be part of the Spurs squad that flies to Australia on Friday

Daniel Levy met Bayern Munich CEO Jan-Christian Dreesen on Thursday to discuss the possible transfer of Harry Kane.

Sky Sports news have been told that no meaningful progress has been made, but the dialogue remains open. This is not the first time Levy and Bayern have met or spoken.

Tottenham will continue to try to persuade Kane to sign a lucrative contract extension but fear he will leave for a Premier League rival if he runs out of his current deal.

Kane has not ruled out any possibility at this stage and will be part of the Tottenham squad that departs for their pre-season tour of Australia on Friday.

Sky Sports news reported earlier this week that Tottenham and Bayern have held talks over the signing of Kane, who met new Spurs boss Ange Postecoglou on Wednesday.

Postecoglou has made it clear that he plans to mold a team that produces exciting attacking football and wants 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 in recent years.

Bayern believe Kane will join them and that appears to be his most likely destination if he leaves in the coming weeks. Tottenham have made it clear they do not want to sell their record goalscorer and will certainly not entertain the £70m Bayern are willing to pay.

The English 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 as Spurs could only finish eighth.

One thing that is clear is that Tottenham will not sell to an English club in this transfer window, which rules out a move to Manchester United, with Erik ten Hag shifting his focus to Danish striker Rasmus Hojlund.

Postecoglou: No guarantees for Kane’s future

Postecoglou said at his first Tottenham news conference on Monday that he had received no guarantees about his star player’s future. “No, I haven’t got any insurance [over Kane’s future] and I wouldn’t expect any assurances because with that sort of thing you never deal with certain things or security.

“I’m trying to concentrate on the things I know right now, and what I know right now is that Harry is part of this squad. He’s looking forward to getting back in training, getting back among the players in here, and we start working together.

Tottenham boss Ange Postecoglou says he wants Harry Kane ‘involved’ at Spurs

“If I spend too much time worrying about the effect it can have either way, I’m going to miss trying to build a team because at the end of the day, that’s what’s going to make us successful.

“If we build a team that plays football a certain way. I don’t want to miss this first opportunity to establish what I know will be important in the long term.

“What’s important long-term goes beyond individuals. It’s more about the overall philosophy of who we want to be as a team and the key people within that.”

Speaking ahead of Wednesday’s meeting with Kane, Postecoglou said: “I don’t think it’s my role to sit there and sort of treat people one way because of their circumstances. I’m very much about treating everyone the same.

“Harry is already part of this club’s history and I want him involved here. My conversation with him will be about how we can make this club succeed and that’s what he wants too.

“I doubt it will be defining in the way people think. I will introduce myself to Harry, give him my vision, get an understanding from him of what his vision is and try to be successful.”

The new Tottenham coach Ange Postecoglou

Postecoglou officially started his new role as Tottenham manager on July 1, but he has already been hard at work behind the scenes for almost a month.

Since the announcement of his appointment was made on June 6, the Australian has planned extensively for what looks to be a huge job at Spurs, who face the reality of being without European football for the first time since 2010.
