Bayern Munich are working ‘flat out’ to seal a deal for Harry Kane, confirms boss Thomas Tuchel, after he confirmed Tottenham have moved the goalposts on the terms of the offer.  

A deal looked to have finally been thrashed out on Thursday night after weeks of negotiations, but Kane and Bayern have been met with delays ahead of a £100million move.

Tuchel may well have hoped it was signed and sealed before he faced the media on Friday but he stepped into the conference room without much good news to share. 

‘You probably know more than I do about where he is and what he’s doing,’ Tuchel said. 

‘We are working flat out on it, but as of now there is no decision and no agreement. And if there is no agreement, the trainer can’t say anything about it.’

Harry Kane’s move to Bayern is in doubt as Tottenham look to renegotiate the £100million deal 

The 30-year-old has been chased by the Bundesliga champions all summer before finally having a bid was accepted on Thursday by Tottenham, his boyhood club. 

He is set to earn an estimated £400,000 a week if the deal goes through – though nothing is guaranteed. 

Kane had been due to arrive in Munich at 10am local time but a series of delays have dragged out any flight to Germany.

There had been hopes in Munich that he would have been finalised and registered in time to face RB Leipzig in the German Super Cup on Saturday, but that now appears remote as a possibility.

‘All options are open,’ Tuchel added. 

‘Harry Kane is not our player now. Our job is to push the players we have. We have time, it’s still early in the season. We also have another training session tomorrow.’ 

Kane’s repeated attempts to leave Tottenham have been one of English football’s longest running transfer sagas. 

The striker first opened up on the issue in 2021, telling Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville that he’d informed Daniel Levy about his intention to walk away.

‘For sure, it’s a moment in my career where I have to kind of reflect and see where I’m at and have a good, honest conversation with the chairman,’ he said at the time. 

That summer Kane was set to go to Manchester City on a reported £400,000-a-week contract, but the move never materialised. 

He was the subject of interest from Manchester United earlier in the summer, but they opted instead to target less costly alternatives in a bid to stay within their transfer budget.

Levy is believed to value the striker closer to £120m, leading him to resist any deal below this level. 

But he hand may have been forced by the fact that Kane is about to enter the final year of his Tottenham contract, meaning he would be free to leave for nothing in 12 months’ time.
