Tottenham Hotspur and chairman Daniel Levy by extension have been sent a warning over star striker Harry Kane’s possible exit as Bayern Munich linger.
The Lowdown: Bayern contact made…
Speaking to Sky Sports recently (via football365), reliable Bundesliga journalist Florian Plettenberg shared a development in the Kane to Bayern saga.
Indeed, the Sky Germany reporter claimed that summer contact was definitely made between the Bundesliga giants and Kane’s camp – more specifically to Charlie Kane, the Spurs striker’s agent and brother.
Plettenberg also says, depending on performances, that Kane could become a ‘hot topic’ at the Allianz Arena over the next transfer window, and what’s more, the player himself can ‘really, really imagine’ joining Bayern.
The Latest: Whelan sends Kane warning…
Following on from this rumoured update, former Leeds striker turned pundit Noel Whelan has warned the Premier League side over selling Kane – calling it a potential ‘real step back’.
He explained to Football Insider:
“Keeping hold of Harry Kane is key to them becoming title challengers.
“If you get rid of an England captain, a top goal scorer – then that’s a real step back. He’s irreplaceable.
“It’s not something the Tottenham fans or players will want to see.
“It’s a really tough decision for the club, and a lot depends on this season for Kane’s future.
“He will be wanting to see how far they’ve come under Conte. If they win a cup this season or go far in the Champions League – that could decide the future for Kane.”
The Verdict: Untouchable…
Losing a player with such fire power and menace in the final third would come as a real blow and there are arguably no replacements out there of a similar ilk – certainly not ones who wouldn’t cost a real premium.
