Bayern Munich CEO Jan-Christian Dreesen and Technical Director Marco Neppe were both absent as the club embarked on a flight to Japan to kickstart their Asia tour. According to Kicker, this is because of the club’s pursuit of Tottenham Hotspur forward Harry Kane with further discussions scheduled for this week.
As further reported by Bild, Neppe arrived at the airport but received a phone call and didn’t board the plane to Tokyo, and instead returned to Säbener Straße, as the club continue their pursuit of Kane. They also suggest that the next negotiations between Dreesen and Daniel Levy could take place as early as Friday.
Should Kane, who has 12 months remaining on his Tottenham contract, leave the Premier League club then Bayern Munich appears to be his likely destination. The Englishman only has a desire to join the Rekordmeister should he leave, despite an approach from PSG with the French club optimistic of their chances.
Bayern Munich are expected to offer Kane a four-or-five-year contract which would see the forward become one of the club’s top earners, netting over €20m per year – a figure similar to what Sadio Mané was offered when he made the switch from Liverpool last year.
