The Bavarians have emerged as the most serious suitors to sign Kane next summer.

Former Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness believes the Bundesliga champions won’t be able to sign Harry Kane.

Bayern decided against signing a new striker when Robert Lewandowski left the club last summer. 

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting has proved to be a reliable option for the Bavarians’ Bundesliga games. But the German giants know they need a new star striker to compete in Europe.

Since the start of the current season, reports around Bayern’s possible move for Harry Kane have intensified. The England international is yet to extend his contract at Spurs, with his current deal running until 2024.

A report from German outlet Bild claims Bayern have already received a first green light through Kane’s older brother Charlie. But Hoeness believes the Bavarians won’t afford to make a big-money move for the England captain.

“He’s a great player, but that’s an order of magnitude,” the former Bayern president told Abendzeitung.

Manchester City got out at €140, €150 million. I can’t imagine that these are amounts that Bayern Munich wants or can pay.”

Kane has continued his brilliant form at Spurs this season despite Tottenham’s struggle for consistency under Antonio Conte.

The 29-year-old has registered 15 Premier League goals and one assist in his 20 league games for the north London side.
