Harry Kane ‘totally committed’ to Tottenham, says head coach Ange Postecoglou, but hints at potential summer move | Soccer News

Ange Postecoglou has said Harry Kane remains “totally committed” to Spurs but admits “we’ll see what happens” in the transfer market this summer.

Kane has entered the final 12 months of his contract with Spurs and speculation over his future has intensified in recent weeks.

Sky Sports News reported last week that Tottenham and Bayern held talks over signing Kane, who met with new Spurs head coach Postecoglou on Wednesday.

He told reporters at a press conference at Spurs’ Australian tour training camp in Perth: “I had a good chat with Harry.

“It was nothing upsetting like people are looking for. Just a good chat, I introduced myself, and we mainly talked about the club, where they are and where they think they can improve.

Harry Kane was spotted shaking hands with chairman Daniel Levy during Tottenham’s pre-season tour of Australia as speculation continues over the striker’s future.

“It’s not a specific vision for one person, it’s about the group and we’re perfectly aligned on that – we want to see a performing team this year.

“There are a lot of people who know Harry better than me, but he won’t be out of step with anything. He’s here and while he’s here he’s totally committed to what we’re doing, and that’s that’s how i saw it.

“The discussion wasn’t really about [the future], it was more about the collective and what we were doing. Harry is like all the other players, it’s not something I ask when they come through the door, asking if you have a ticket or not.

“It’s about working hard as a group as we go along, some will be there the whole trip some won’t, but a lot of that is decided along the way. It’s not something I demand of people from the start.

“We have almost a month before the start of the season, the transfer window is still open, so we will see what happens.”

Bayern confident of Kane’s arrival

Bayern believe Kane wants to join them and that seems to be his most likely destination should he leave in the coming weeks. Tottenham have made it clear they don’t want to sell their top scorer and are unlikely to receive the £70m figure that Bayern are willing to pay.

On Wednesday, Sky Sports’ Paul Gilmour provided an update on Harry Kane’s future possibilities with communication with Bayern Munich ongoing.

The England captain has scored 213 goals for Spurs and is the second highest goalscorer in Premier League history behind Alan Shearer. He needs 48 more goals to break the record.

Bayern appeared to up the ante on Kane at the weekend, with the club’s honorary chairman Uli Hoeness claiming an agreement on personal terms had been reached with the Spurs striker.

“Harry Kane has made it clear in all conversations that his decision stands – and if he sticks to his word we will get it, because then Tottenham will have to give in,” Hoeness told the German broadcaster. Sports1.

“Kane wants to play at international level and luckily for us Tottenham won’t be active at international level next year.

“He now has another opportunity to join a top club in Europe. So far, father and brother have always kept their promises. If it stays that way, it doesn’t matter.”

Kane was spotted interacting with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy as he arrived in Australia for the club’s tour of Perth, Bangkok and Singapore.

While Bayern continue to push to secure the England captain’s services and have reportedly made two offers for the striker, Spurs’ position remains the same, they have no intention of selling Kane.

For their part, Tottenham will continue to try to persuade Kane to sign a lucrative contract extension, but fear he could leave for a Premier League rival if he cancels his current deal.

Bayern honorary chairman Hoeness added: “Levy is smart, he doesn’t name a number. We have to get him to name a number first.

“Of course he’s playing for time. I think he’s a super savvy professional, I appreciate him a lot – but I don’t think there are people on the other side who have been doing it since yesterday. “
