Mauricio Pochettino Reveals Why Harry Kane Will Not Leave Spurs For Bayern Munich. Despite interest from the European heavyweights, as per former Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino, Harry Kane is unlikely to leave Spurs for Bayern Munich.
Prior to the 2022–23 season, Bayern Munich lost star striker Robert Lewandowski to Barcelona. Notably, they chose not to sign a Pole’s equivalent replacement during the summer transfer window.
However, it appears that the Bavarians intend to bolster their lineup with a top centre-forward. Their top pick to replace Lewandowski appears to be Tottenham’s captain Kane.
The English skipper has recently been heavily linked with a transfer to the Bundesliga champions. They allegedly spoke with Charlie Kane, his brother, and his agent about a possible transfer, according to some reports.
Kane might be interested in leaving Tottenham to join Bayern Munich, but Pochettino is unsure. The 29-year-old is reportedly aiming to surpass all previous Premier League top scorers, according to the former Spurs manager.
“Harry Kane to Bayern? That would only happen if Harry changed his way of thinking, which I don’t believe he will. He’s very attached to England and his country. He wants to be the Premier League’s all-time top scorer. That’s his goal.” He told Bavarian daily Suddeutsche Zeitung [via @iMiaSanMia on Twitter]
Pochettino went on to say that if Kane decides to leave England, Real Madrid would be a better option. The Argentine tactician continued: “I always saw him as a player who would go to a club like Real Madrid if he ever left England.”

Kane has scored 195 goals in the Premier League over the course of his career. He is third on the league’s all-time scoring list, trailing only Alan Shearer and Wayne Rooney.
The England captain is only 13 goals behind Wayne Rooney’s 208 total, but he is still 65 goals behind Shearer. It remains to be seen whether he will turn down a move to a major European club in order to become England’s all-time leading scorer.
