Bayern Munich coach Thomas Tuchel has finally spoken out about the ongoing Harry Kane transfer saga after reports of a last-minute setback in the deal. The German club is reportedly close to signing the England captain from Tottenham Hotspur in a move that would break the Bundesliga transfer record.

Tuchel confirmed that Bayern is still 'working hard to secure Kane's services, but admitted that there is no agreement or decision yet. He said the deal is no longer a secret, but it is also not a done deal.

On Friday, former Chelsea boss Tuchel said, “You probably know more than I do about where he is and what he’s doing. We’re working on it; that’s no secret. But as long as there’s no decision and no agreement, I can’t say anything.”

Kane, who has scored 280 goals in 435 appearances for Tottenham, has been linked with a move away from the London club for months. He has expressed his desire to win trophies and play in the Champions League, something Tottenham cannot offer him. He has also been courted by other clubs, such as Manchester United and Manchester City, but Bayern seems to have won the race for his signature.

The deal is set to be worth more than 100 million pounds ($110 million) and make Kane the most expensive player in Bundesliga history, surpassing the previous record of 80 million euros ($94 million) paid by Bayern for Lucas Hernandez in 2019. Kane's move to Bayern Munich is seen as a significant step towards earning his first major trophy, having never lifted one during his time at Tottenham.

Kane was expected to fly to Germany on Friday to undergo medical tests and finalize the contract, which would reportedly last for four years. However, Sky Sports reported that he had not yet left England, causing speculation that there might be some complications or delays in the transfer. Kane's potential arrival would boost Bayern's attack, which has lacked a focal point since the departure of Robert Lewandowski to Barcelona last year.
