Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is understood to be ‘very angry’ as reports emerged claiming Harry Kane had met with Thomas Tuchel in London.

The future of the England captain is still up in the air as he only has one year left to run on his Tottenham contract.

Bayern Munich remain a big admirer of the 29-year-old as talks have ramped up in recent weeks.

Kane reportedly told Tuchel that the idea of winning the Champions League with the German club would appeal to him.

Levy is understood to be furious with these talks and the club could even ask UEFA to penalise Bayern for these behind-the-scenes talks.

“I recently shared the news that Thomas Tuchel visited Harry Kane’s home to discuss the possibility of a transfer to Bayern Munich,” Christian Falk told CaughtOffside.

“It is very normal that the clubs are talking to the player they want before they get them but it’s indeed not allowed. So we heard that Daniel Levy was very, very angry about that.

“It doesn’t make it easier for Bayern Munich to get Harry Kane, because, of course, Levy doesn’t want to see Spurs’ captain sitting with another team’s coach. So now things are getting complicated.”

According to The Times, Tottenham have offered Kane a highly lucrative deal to pen a new deal with the club.

The deal could see his wages rise from £200,000 a week to £300,000 depending on bonuses.

However, despite the huge sums of money on the table, this isn’t said to be Kane’s motivation at this point in time.

“We heard that the talks with Thomas Tuchel were very positive,” Falk adds. “Money is not the main consideration for Harry Kane in these talks – he wants to win the Champions League and he sees his biggest chance at achieving that with Bayern Munich rather than Tottenham, so I’m not sure if more money can change his mind.

“But we have to see now how Tottenham will react because I heard rumours that Daniel Levy is so angry that he could perhaps go to UEFA and ask them to penalise Bayern. I asked Tottenham about this and they ‘won’t be offering any comment on this speculation’.”

Ange Postecoglou will want to know the situation regarding Kane’s future as soon as possible so that he can plan for the season ahead.

The forward scored 30 goals last season and had a superb individual campaign, despite Tottenham’s dip in form.
