The silly season is upon us and Harry Kane's future is up in the air again. Manchester City were linked with the Tottenham captain in previous windows but they are well-stocked in that department with Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez.
It has opened up the space for Manchester United, who are without a natural striker after Cristiano Ronaldo's defection to Al Nassr. Erik ten Hag roped in compatriot Wout Weghorst on loan but the Dutch attacker failed to trouble the scorers in his 17 Premier League appearances.
With a limited kitty and after splurging on Mason Mount and coming close to acquiring Andre Onana, it looks unlikely that the Red Devils will make a move for England's all-time top goalscorer.
Santiago Bernabeu was mooted as a possible destination after Karim Benzema's departure for the lucrative Saudi Professional League. However, Kylian Mbappe's bombshell has forced PSG's hand and after cryptic messages from Real Madrid, that deal is taking priority over any overtures for the 29-year-old.
In the midst of it all, only Bayer Munich are the only one to have made concrete advances for Kane, making two bids that have been spectacularly rejected within moments. Dealing with Daniel Levy will not be an idea but the Bavarians should not give up that easily, there are plenty of up sights for securing the England legend.
Tottenham are not intentioned to accept €80m fixed fee for Harry Kane. Sources close to Spurs guarantee that this amount won't be enough for Bayern to make deal happen. ⚪️⚠️ #THFC

Why Bayern should sign Kane?
World-Class Striker with plenty to give
Roberto Soldado was a high-profile capture from Valencia but a young Kane sidelined him. Since the 2013-14 campaign, he has solidified himself as Spurs' main man. He is the North Londoners' top goalscorer of all time and is closing in on Alan Shearer's record.
For the last nine years, Kane has finished the season with at least 24 goals. Moreover, he is one of the few players with multiple 30+ Premier League seasons. Bayern have been hurting since Lewandoski's transfer to Barcelona and will be a potent threat in any attacking setup Thomas Tuchel can conjure.

Kane's incredible goal-scoring record and clinical finishing would significantly strengthen Die Roten's already formidable attacking lineup.
Add valuable experience and leadership
Kane brings valuable experience and leadership qualities to the team. As the captain of both Tottenham Hotspur and the England national team, he has demonstrated the ability to lead and inspire his teammates. Munich can benefit from his strong presence both on and off the pitch, especially in high-pressure situations.
They missed these attributed after Manuel Neuer's freak skiing injury during the winter break. Kane, with his strong work ethic, dedication, professionalism, and commitment to constant improvement will be a welcome addition to Allianz Arena. Not only will this help him assimilate in the group easier but also set a positive example for his teammates and contribute to the overall team dynamic.
Tactical Flexibility in the attacking third
The 84-time capped England international is equally adept at playing as a lone striker, in a two-striker system, or even in a deeper attacking role. He possesses exceptional football intelligence, which enables him to make intelligent runs, exploit spaces, and create goal-scoring opportunities for himself and his teammates. Not only does he hit the back of the net regularly, his linkup also allows those around him to flourish.
This flexibility will allow Tuchel to experiment and get the most out of his current crop. His ability to read the game and make quick decisions would greatly complement the technical and tactical style of play, especially helping Leroy Sane and Sadio Mane to give their best in Munich.

Kane's marketing potential
Beyond his on-field contributions, Kane's marketability and commercial appeal should also be considered. Bayern will not only be getting a prolific striker but be the destination for England's all-time top goalscorer's hunt for silverware.
Kane has accumulated plenty of personal records but at Bayern, he will be challenging for team honours that he desperately craves. Not only English audiences but global attention will be on the 29-year-old as he moves away from North London to Bavaria. Signing Kane would not only strengthen Munich's squad but also enhance the club's brand image and attract a wider international fan base.
