Julian Nagelsmann refuses to rule out move for Tottenham’s Harry Kane as Robert Lewandowski replacement at Bayern Munich – ‘We’ll see what happens in the future’

    Bayern Munich boss Julian Nagelsmann has not ruled out a move for Tottenham star Harry Kane.

    The German giants lost talismanic forward Robert Lewandowski to Barcelona earlier in the transfer window and are yet to replace him.

    Kane does now seem committed to Tottenham, despite wanting to leave last summer

    The Bayern boss states that the Tottenham striker is a ‘brilliant player’, after Kane had another productive season in the Premier League last term, scoring 17 goals and providing nine assists.

    Nagelsmann did admit that Kane was ‘very expensive’, but that didn’t make him rule out a move for the England captain, claiming the club will ‘see what happens in the future’.

    The German boss said: “He’s very expensive that’s the problem.

    “But he’s a brilliant player, one of two or three who can play as a centre forward [as well as a] No.10, but he’s very strong, brilliant with [his] head and both feet.

    “He could score a lot in the Bundesliga, I don’t know the price, but it’s really tough for Bayern Munich. We’ll see what happens in the future.”

    Kane was keen to leave Spurs last season, with a move to Manchester City – who Bayern play on Sunday – on the cards, but the transfer never materialised.

    German outlet Bild reported earlier this week that the Bundesliga champions had sounded out Kane’s representatives over a summer move.

    But it is said that the answer was a firm ‘no’ over a transfer this year, with the centre-forward committed to remaining at the club under Antonio Conte.
