Bayern Munich target Harry Kane is offered new deal by Spurs.

Harry Kane has reportedly decided he will not ‘push’ to leave Tottenham amid interest from Bayern Munich, but remains ‘open’ and would ‘consider’ a move.

Kane’s future is the main talking point of Tottenham’s summer. His potential exit could make or break the next few seasons for the north London outfit.

If he is to leave, they could well find it difficult to compete at the top end of the Premier League for a while. But it seems there’s a genuine chance of his exit happening.

Bayern Munich are the main club in pursuit, given the striker apparently ‘wants to join’ the German giants. They’ve been pushing hard after lodging two bids, having apparently met with Tottenham, breeding optimism that a deal can be done.

Kane has now made the process an easier one for Tottenham. Indeed, the Evening Standard reports the striker ‘does not intend to push to leave’ the club this summer.

That’s unlike two summers ago, when he wanted to make a move, with Manchester City interested in him at the time. His current standpoint reportedly owes to ‘positive talks’ with new boss Ange Postecoglou.

But while Kane’s not going to be a nuisance for Spurs in order to make them sell him, there’s still a chance he does leave. Indeed, he is said to be ‘keeping an open mind’ on his future and ‘would consider’ leaving either now, or when his contract runs out next summer.

It seems clear he’s not ready to commit his future to the club. Kane will reportedly not pen a new deal within the transfer window, and won’t do it at all ‘unless Spurs show significant progress’ this season.

It seems fair for him to delay that decision until he’s sure he’s playing for a side that’s going to play at his level. He’s been Tottenham’s best player for years, and that was no more true than last season, when he bagged 30 Premier League goals in an eighth-placed side.

If Spurs are consigned to a similar finish in the league this season, they can surely wave goodbye to any chance they had of keeping Kane happy, and crucially, keeping him at the club.
