Tottenham are preparing for a huge offer to come from Bayern Munich as the German champions continue to chase the England captain.

Bayern have already seen their opening two bids rejected by Tottenham, but they are still confident of striking a deal this summer.

While Tottenham are desperate to keep Kane at the club for the foreseeable future, the 29-year-old is said to be open to a move to Germany.

The German club aren’t going away any time soon and the latest reports have claimed they are now preparing a third bid for the forward.

According to Football Insider, Bayern will return with ‘a new and improved bid’ which is set to be more than Tottenham’s record club sale.

Gareth Bale’s £85m move to Real Madrid in 2013 is still a club-record sale at Tottenham and Bayern’s latest bid has been tipped to be worth more than that figure.

Losing Kane at this sage would be a huge blow for Tottenham, but they are left in a difficult position as his contract is set to expire next summer.

The 29-year-old scored 30 league goals last season and was one of the most prolific forwards in Europe, despite Spurs themselves struggling for much consistency.

Ange Postecoglou recently discussed Kane’s future as he hopes a solution is found sooner rather than later.

“I think, for everyone concerned, we don’t want to be doing it for too long. I don’t think that is good for anyone. I don’t think it is good for Harry, I don’t think it is good for the club, because as laser focused as we want to be, you end up sort of repeating yourself along the way.

“But the flip side of that is I don’t want to put a deadline on it, because that adds even more pressure. You want these things to happen for the right reasons. The reality of it is he’s still a contracted player at our football club, so that’s the way I see him.

“It’s not like his contract is ending (when the season starts) and he’s got to make a decision. He’s got another year. So from that part, I am not relaxed but I am not putting pressure on him or anyone else at the football club, saying: ‘Well we need to do this’. But, I don’t think deep down any of us want it to go on for too long.

“It’s fair to say I am not relaxed about it! It’s not something you go: ‘Ah, well, you know if it does or doesn’t happen!’ I mean it’s a very important part of this football club, not just the team, but the football club. He is such a massive figure.”
