Bayern Munich CEO Oliver Kahn has this time declined to discuss a transfer for Tottenham striker Harry Kane.
The former goalkeeper recently described Kane as a ‘dream of the future’, while Bayern boss Julian Naglesmann has also gone public with his admiration of the striker – prompting a frustrated response from Spurs boss Antonio Conte.
Seemingly concerned about upsetting Conte once again, Kahn declined to get drawn into a conversation about Kane when asked for an update on Bayern‘s interest.
“I can just say that Harry Kane is an outstanding striker who is now under contract at Tottenham,” Kahn told Bild.
Conte has described Bayern’s interest as ‘only rumours’ and reiterated the club’s desire to keep Kane around for the foreseeable future.

90min reported earlier this summer that Spurs and Kane have a mutual interest in discussing a new contract, although neither party is in a rush to sit down and formalise things just yet.
Kane is known to be enjoying life under Conte, who led a major transformation of Spurs last season as he steered them back to the Champions League, and the club’s transfer business will also have made an impression.
Spurs acted early and aggressively to bring in Ivan Perisic, Richarlison, Yves Bissouma, Fraser Forster and Djed Spence, with Barcelona defender Clement Lenglet also joining on a season-long loan to add numbers at the back.
