Harry Kane’s wife responds to Spurs transfer clue amid Bayern Munich standoff

Harry Kane has suggested on social media that he may stay at Tottenham after all, but Bayern Munich remain determined to secure his signature.

Harry Kane’s wife, Kate, has commented on her husband’s coy Instagram post which was posted after Tottenham’s final pre-season fixture. The 30-year-old striker, who faces an increasingly uncertain future in north London, scored four goals in a 5-1 win over Shakhtar Donetsk on Sunday.

Following his impressive performance, Kane returned to the pitch for a lap of honour, applauding all four stands of the Spurs stadium. While the England international fuelled doubt over his future in doing so, some believe that he put any speculation of a departure to bed on social media.

“Ramping it up,” wrote Kane, suggesting that he may stay at the Lilywhites. Unsurprisingly, the post filled with Bayern Munich fans begging the striker to join but, among the masses, was a message from his partner, Kate, who simply commented four fire emojis.

After the friendly against Shakhtar, Ange Postecoglou was asked if Kane is in contention to feature against Brentford on the opening weekend of the new Premier League season. The Bees will welcome Tottenham to Gtech Community Stadium on Sunday afternoon, August 13.

“Yeah, I don’t think that (professionalism) has ever been in question about Harry,” said Postecoglou. “His whole career he has shown that. He was good today and the majority of our stuff was fairly positive. Obviously still got a fair few things to work on.

“I am just planning for preparing the team for Tuesday and then we’ll work our way into Brentford for next week,” added the Spurs boss. “I haven’t even thought about who will start that game. It is about trying to have as many players ready for that fixture as possible and we’ve still got guys coming in.

“We signed young Ashley Phillips on Friday and he’ll train with the first team. We hopefully have another couple coming in over the next couple of days. All those kind of things are part of the planning and I’ll deal with the team for Brentford at the back end of the week.”

Prior to the departure of Fabio Paratici in April, football.london understood that Tottenham had been in contact with Kane’s entourage to discuss a new contract. But, the Englishman is said to be in no rush to sign an extension while he assesses his options during the summer transfer window.

Despite significant interest from Bayern, Daniel Levy seems determined to hold onto Kane, who will not force an exit. For now, it remains to be seen whether the German giants will spend big on the Spurs ace.
