Harry Kane is the main summer transfer target of Bayern Munich, but Tottenham are preparing a contract renewal for him.

Tottenham are said to have opened talks with Harry Kane and his representatives over a new contract as the striker continues to be of interest to Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich.

The 29-year-old England international recently became the record goalscorer for his boyhood club, surpassing Jimmy Greaves.

Tottenham want to renew Kane

Tottenham's next agenda is renewing Harry Kane's contract after talks with Eric Dier for a new deal are progressing positively, according to Football Insider

The Tottenham academy graduate's contract expires next summer, and Tottenham would like to extend his deal after successfully fending off interests for him.  

Kane pushed for a move out of Spurs in the summer of 2021, with Manchester City hot on his trail. Manchester City made a £100 million bid, but it was rejected by Tottenham, who had no intention of selling their best player to City, which is also consistent with club chairman Daniel Levy's policy of not selling star players to league rivals.

Kane overcame the disappointment of the failed transfer and had a memorable season, winning the golden boot and the playmaker award. He is now attracting new interest from Bayern Munich, who lost their own goal-scoring talisman, Robert Lewandowski, in the summer to Barcelona.

The bigger picture for Kane 

Harry Kane is 29 years old and has yet to lift a piece of silverware despite his amazing personal records and awards.

The Englishman surpassed Tottenham legend Jimmy Greaves' record of 266 goals for Tottenham this season and reached the 200 Premier League-goal milestone achieved by only two players before him, Alan Shearer and Wayne Rooney.

Bayern's interest in Kane is genuine, and a move to the Bavarian side could help him conquer the trophy aspect of his career that is lacking, as Bayern Munich have won the Bundesliga for the last 10 seasons. However, Kane is reported to be settled at Spurs and is no longer as unsettled as he was in the summer of 2021.
