Harry Kane won’t push for exit but Tottenham told to ‘move on’ and cash in on Bayern Munich target this summer

Harry Kane will not actively try and force a move from Tottenham this summer, talkSPORT understands.

The 30-year-old has been the subject of heavy speculation over a move away from the north London side this summer.

He has just one year left on his contract at Spurs and should he stay for one final season, he could leave the club for free next summer.

Bayern Munich are very keen to sign Kane and have already made moves to try and complete a deal.

Spurs are considering a final ‘take-it or leave-it’ offer for the striker from the Bundesliga champions worth £85million plus add-ons.

Kane has also so far refused to sign a new contract at the club, with his future therefore still up in the air.

However, talkSPORT’s Darren Bent and Darren Ambrose believe Spurs should sell him now and move on from their all-time record scorer.

Speaking on Drive, Ambrose said: “I think now maybe the time, I think Spurs need to cash in.

“That’s hard for me to say being a Spurs supporter, but they need to cash in. They need to get some money.

“The one person I feel sorry for here is Ange Postecoglou – he needs to know what’s happening with with his star player.”

“The one thing I would say as well, and I love Kane, I’m a massive fan and I think he’s outstanding, world-class… but Spurs have won nothing with him,” Bent replied.

“People have been saying if he goes, what do Spurs do? But they haven’t won anything anyway, so at some stage you’re going to have to move on.

“It’s going to be interesting. I genuinely believe Daniel Levy will have to accept this bid.

“Because if Kane has got no desire to stay at Spurs at the end of the season when he’s on a free, then Levy is basically turning his back on £85m-plus and getting nothing.”

Ambrose added: “One thing is for sure, Kane hold all the cards.

“If he’s still at Tottenham when the window closes, he will have got so much power. He can walk into Levy’s office say, ‘I want £500,000-a-week and I want a £50m get-out clause’.

“And essentially Levy would have to think about that, because otherwise he walks on a free, and that way he would get some money with a release clause.”

At the start of this week, reports emerged that Harry Kane is keen to leave Tottenham Hotspur this summer. Reports have claimed that he wants to play at a club competing for trophies, something he hasn’t been able to do at Tottenham. However, Kane himself has politely denied these claims and stated that he will be staying with Tottenham this season.

This news comes days after Bayern Munich confirmed their interest in signing Kane, with the Bavarian giants said to be willing to pay a huge transfer fee in order to secure the England captain’s services.

Despite Kane’s insistence that he will stay at Tottenham, the London club are said to have discussed the possibility of cashing in on their star striker as they look to rebuild for the 2021/2022 season. Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is said to have opened talks with Bayern Munich earlier in the week and while the club may not be entirely willing to offload Kane, they could be tempted to accept a good enough offer due to their financial situation.

Kane has scored 139 goals over the last five years, and at 27 years old, he still has plenty of years of peak football left in him. He is also known for his professionalism on the pitch and good attitude off it, so any team that manages to sign him would be getting a great player.

It remains to be seen if Tottenham will sell Kane this summer, but it is clear that they need to start looking to the future and rebuilding their squad in order to compete for trophies. A transfer fee for Kane could go a long way in helping them do just that.
