The name Harry Kane has been circulating on Säbener Straße for some time. However, his ex-coach Mauricio Pochettino does not believe that the attacker will really move to Germany.

As Pochettino explained in an interview with the Süddeutsche Zeitung, Kane dreams of going down in history as one of the greatest Premier League players of all time. “He wants to be the all-time top scorer in the Premier League,” said the Argentina coach. “That’s his goal”.

For this reason, the currently clubless football coach cannot imagine that his former protégé will be drawn to the German record champions. A move is only realistic if Kane scraps the plan, Pochettino said, adding that he doesn’t think so. The only foreign club he could think of for Kane has always been Real Madrid. The Tottenham striker has close ties to his home country of England.

Over the past few months, various media have repeatedly reported Bayern’s interest in the 29-year-old attacker. At the beginning of September, the Bild newspaper reported that CEO Oliver Kahn in particular was convinced of Kane and was pushing for a transfer. The people of Munich are already in contact with Kane’s brother and advisor Charlie and have expressed their interest. Should Kane not renew his contract, which expires in 2024, the Spurs could be forced to sell in the summer. Otherwise there is a risk of a transfer-free loss in 2024.
