Chelsea make sensational Harry Kane transfer swoop with Bayern Munich hoping interest will help seal Tottenham exit

Chelsea make sensational Harry Kane transfer swoop with Bayern Munich hoping interest will help seal Tottenham exit

When it appeared that Kane might leave the North Londoners last summer, the Blues were interested.

However, the striker is happy at Tottenham and enjoys working under Antonio Conte.

However, he has yet to be offered a contract extension, despite the fact that his current contract expires in two years.

Chelsea is still keen on bringing their rival’s talisman to Stamford Bridge.

Although, according to Bild’s Christian Falk, Spurs would prefer to sell to Bayern Munich if Kane makes it clear that he will not sign a new contract.

According to Football London, Kane is settled at Tottenham and it is only a “matter of time” before the North Londoners open contract talks with him.

Conte, 52, hit back: “Honestly I didn’t hear this. For sure I’m a coach who doesn’t talk about players from other teams. I don’t know why [this happened].

“The situation at Tottenham is very clear. The plan is very clear with the club. Harry is a part of the project. He is a very important part of the project and yeah only rumours.”

He then continued: “At the same time I repeat I don’t like to speak about players from another club.

“If I want to do something I go to speak to the club, not through the media.

“I think maybe it’s a bit disrespectful for the other club. This is my way. This is my way to face the situation with other players.”

Kane, who will turn 29 on Thursday, has been on fire in pre-season, scoring five goals in three games.

On working with Conte, he recently said: “Antonio has been fantastic. I’ve learned from every manager I’ve worked under. Antonio has probably taken fitness levels to another level for me.

“The mentality, being with him every day seeing the way he prepares, the way he brings his passion and brings the best out of the lads, I’ve learnt from that.

“I feel like I’m learning every year anyway and getting more experience and getting better, but with someone like Antonio it’s speeding up that process even quicker.

“I feel in good shape. There’s still work to do in the next month in this pre-season. I feel like I’ve still got a lot more to give and hopefully I can show that next year.”

After the departure of Romelu Lukaku, Chelsea are expected to start the season with Kai Havertz as their first choice forward.

After signing Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling for £47.5 million, the Blues have turned their attention to strengthening their defense.

Kalidou Koulibaly has arrived from Napoli, and negotiations for Jules Kounde and Presnel Kimpembe are ongoing.
