Oliver Kahn, the CEO of Bayern Munich, appears to have given permission for a move to sign Harry Kane in the wake of Robert Lewandowski’s sensational departure for FC Barcelona.
The legendary German goalkeeper made a suggestion that Bayern may look to replace Lewandowski with Kane while speaking to Bild via the Evening Standard.
Lewandowski ultimately agreed to a move to Barcelona this weekend after weeks of rumours surrounding the Polish superstar.
It will be difficult for Bayern to replace the 34-year-old striker because Lewandowski is undoubtedly one of the few attackers in the world of football who is better than Kane.
This summer, Bayern has already recruited Sadio Mane and extended Serge Gnabry’s contract. The defending Bundesliga winners would benefit from a new star attacker, though.
And Kane might be the ideal addition for Bayern, since the world-class Spurs star has yet to win a major trophy for either club or his nation.
Kane is at the peak of his career and is probably open to a move where he will be in the forefront of winning silverware.
But with a rumoured £200,000-per-week contract, Bayern could find it difficult to match the pay that Kane would demand if he moved to Bavaria.
If Kahn’s remarks are to be believed, the German powerhouses, however, are confident that a deal might be made for the Premier League superstar.
When questioned about the Spurs forward as a potential transfer target this summer, the Bundesliga official responded:
“He is under contract at Tottenham. Sure, he is an absolute top striker, but that’s all a dream of the future. So let’s see what happens.”
