Bayern Munich sporting director Christoph Freund says the club is looking at keeping Harry Kane for the long term after the England captain made a bright start to life in Germany.
Kane bagged his fifth goal in all competitions since joining last month as Bayern saw off Manchester United 4-3 in the Champions League.
Kane has taken to life at Bayern as a Duck to water and formed a formidable partnership with the electric Jamal Musiala and Leroy Sane. Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou has maintained he respects Kane and accepted his desire to move when he was told about the move while chairman Daniel Levy has said there was a buy-back clause in Kane’s contract that meant there was a chance he could return in future.
But Bayern Munich sporting director Christoph Freund has dismissed any imminent return by insisting Kane is there for the long ride.
He told DAZN: “We won’t say anything about that [the buy-back clause]. We never reveal anything about contract details.
“Harry is here, has left England for the first time with conviction. We have a four-year contract with him. We are very, very happy and are planning long-term with him at Bayern.
“He will shape this team and an era here. I’m convinced of that. He feels very comfortable and has big goals with Bayern in the coming years.”
Kane left Seven Sisters Road this summer after scoring 280 goals for the club and winning three Premier League Golden Boot awards as well as reaching the Champions League final with the Lilywhites.
