Paul Gilmour has stated that while Bayern Munich believe Harry Kane has “given his word he will join them”, Sky Sports have been told he’s “not closing off any avenue” yet.

Reports of late seem to suggest Kane’s future is closer to being decided than it ever has been. While there’s always interest in him, multiple approaches such as those Bayern have made have not been seen before.

The German giants seem adamant they’re going to land the striker, and that’s not without reason. A few months ago, there was interest in the Englishman from Manchester United, though that seems to have vanished.

Bayern are also ahead of Paris Saint-Germain, as it’s apparently clear Kane would ‘turn down an approach’ from the French outfit.

Bayern chief Uli Hoeness has also stated the Bundesliga giants will “get him” after he “signalled very clearly his decision was made”.

Indeed, Bayern seemingly feel he has communicated his decision to join them. While Sky Sports‘ Gilmour reiterates that belief, he feels they are getting ahead of themselves, as Kane’s not ready to make a decision one way or the other.

“It’s a complicated story in that Bayern believe that Kane has given them his word that he will join them, but we’re told Kane is not closing off any avenue at this moment in time,” Gilmour told Last Word on Spurs.

There’s seemingly still a decision to be made over Kane’s future. Previous reports have stated the striker is ‘keeping an open mind’, and it’ll take ‘significant progress’ this season to make him pen a new deal, which, if true, would suggest he’s planning to stay for now.

If that’s not the case and he does want to join Bayern, though, they’ll still have to overcome the issue of Tottenham’s valuation in order to snare Kane.

“There’s a lot of noise around this, but the fact remains that the clubs are apart in valuation,” Gilmour added.

As such, it still seems the striker’s future is up in the air, and it remains to be seen if there’s an answer on where he’ll end up this summer or not.
