Speaking to BILD (h/t Fabrizio Romano), Bayern Munich chairman Arjen Robben has responded to rumours that the German champions are planning to sign Tottenham Hotspur superstar Harry Kane next year. Bayern Munich have lost Robert Lewandowski after agreeing to sell him to Barcelona last week in a deal worth up to €50 million. It has left a huge void in the attacking unit at the Allianz Stadium, even though they have signed Sadio Mane from Liverpool.

A move for Harry Kane had been touted in media recently, although such a transfer is extremely unlikely to happen this summer as the Lilywhites have no intentions of selling the England captain. The 28-year-old himself is unlikely to want to leave Tottenham despite having pushed hard for an exit last year. Under Antonio Conte, the north London giants have shown a lot of progress, while they have also had an exceptional transfer window so far, making vital additions to the squad in hope of challenging for top honours.
