Bundesliga insider Christian Falk has claimed that Bayern Munich are hoping to secure a deal for Tottenham striker Harry Kane “by the end of the month”.

The England skipper has one year left on his contract at Spurs with rumours he’s looking to move on this summer in order to win the first trophy of his career.

Bayern Munich’s honorary president Uli Hoeness caused a stir last weekend with claims that Kane will be a Bayern player next season if he stays true to his word.

That led to reports that Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is ‘angry’ at Hoeness’ comments and that he will now refuse to sell for £100m, let alone £80m or £90m.

And Bild reporter Falk has now revealed that Bayern Munich are “speaking to the player” with the aim to get a deal done in the next ten days.

Falk wrote in his Caught Offside column: “Bayern hope to secure a deal for Harry Kane by the end of the month. Uli Hoeness was talking to the press and confirmed that everyone in the club is talking with Harry Kane – Thomas Tuchel, Jan-Christian Dreesen – he said that ‘Harry Kane gave us his word and if he stays to his word – that will work’.

“The problem is that now everyone is afraid that Daniel Levy is really angry because of these comments, as it’s now official they’re speaking to the player. That’s why Dreesen, who’s the CEO, made a call to Levy again to try and calm the situation and apologise about Hoeness’ comments.

“You see how explosive things are at the moment. The main thing now is that they have confirmed that Harry Kane will do everything to go Bayern Munich. Hoeness confirmed that. Perhaps he did so to push the deal forward but this could cost Bayern.

“Nobody in the club is amused about this inside Bayern because they know it makes things more difficult and more expensive.”

Kane could be joined at Bayern Munich by England team-mate Kyle Walker with Falk claiming that the right-back has now told Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola of his desire to move to the Bundesliga.

Falk added: “Kyle Walker wanted to talk with Pep Guardiola and he informed him about his desire for a transfer to Bayern Munich. Now the next step is to talk with the clubs but also there are small problems in the team because normally Bayern Munich, when they hand contracts to players currently in the squad, only offer a one-year contract for players over the age of 30 (like Manchester City).

“But for Walker, they want to give him a 2+1 year contract. That doesn’t sound nice for the older players in the team, so there’s a bit of tension. At Bayern Munich, everyone thinks the deal will work.

“Bayern Munich are yet to get an offer for Benjamin Pavard but what we’ve heard from the player’s side is that he would be interested in a move to Manchester City. One important thing for him is to play as a defender and not a right-back.

“If Pep Guardiola is playing with three in a row at the back, that would also work fine for him. So this could be the next step when they get into talks. Bayern want to sell him, they would talk about the scenario of a swap deal for Kyle Walker.”
