Bayern Munich star Harry Kane has reaffirmed the German side’s focus on their Champions League clash against Manchester United on Tuesday evening.
Kane, 30, was among the team to lose 5-1 against Eintracht Frankfurt on the weekend which now leaves Bayern four points behind Bundesliga leaders Bayer Leverkusen.
The experienced striker, who already has a staggering 22 goals so far this season, took to Instagram on Sunday to explain that the German outfit are keen to put things right against Manchester United, even though they are already through to the Champions League knockout stages.
“We know yesterday wasn’t good enough and full focus now on Tuesday to show the right reaction,” he wrote.
Ten Hag is struggling to find a tune in his United side and must be wondering what could’ve been if a deal for Kane to join the English giants was able to work.
The Dutch manager wanted Kane, and the then-Tottenham Hotspur striker wanted to join the Old Trafford club, according to a new report on the transfer saga from the Daily Mail.
However, the Manchester club believed that Spurs owner Daniel Levy would string them along for the entire transfer window, and they didn’t want to wait to do their business at the tail-end of the window.
A source close to the deal would also suggest that the wage packet was another stumbling block. “It was Cristiano Ronaldo money,” they stated. The report added that Kane’s salary in Munich is £500,000, including signing-on fees and bonuses.
Instead, United grabbed Rasmus Hojlund from Atalanta. The young striker has shown promise so far at the club, particularly in Europe; however is still raw and learning his trade as a top-level striker.
Kane is on the other end of the spectrum, and he will be at Old Trafford for the first time since England faced North Macedonia in June.
He was still linked with a move to the club then and scored twice in a 7-0 win. Marcus Rashford combined with Luke Shaw, who set up Kane for his first of the night. The United pairing, this time, will be against Kane and their Champions League knockout hopes are on the line.
