Harry Kane is ‘too old and expensive’ for Bayern Munich claims club legend in boost to Man Utd transfer hopes | The Sun

HARRY KANE is "too old and expensive", according to Bayern Munich club legend Lothar Matthaus.

The England No9's future is already the talk of the next transfer window with just over a year left on his contract.

Bayern Munich and Manchester United are believed to be the frontrunners for Kane but the German giants have been urged to swerve the striker by icon Matthaus.

He believes Spurs' record top scorer is not worth £100million at the age of 29 and prefers 24-year-old Victor Osimhen of Napoli.

Writing for Sky Deutschland, Matthaus, 62, said: "I'm excited to see if a new striker comes along.

"Everyone is talking about Victor Osimhen for his sensational performance at Napoli.

"You never know if he can do that in Munich, but I think he would be a good fit.

"Randal Kolo Muani may need a little more room and space than a Bayern striker usually has, but he's also good in the box and could work in Munich. Harry Kane would be too old and too expensive for me.

"The price-performance ratio could speak for [Werder Bremen striker] Niclas Füllkrug.

"He would probably be available for €20-25 million [£17.6m-£22m] and score 25 goals in Munich."

If Kane does not sign a new contract at Spurs, he would be available for nothing in the summer of 2024.

This has sparked speculation over his future and could give Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy a decision to make this summer.

Reports last month suggested that United have even received a boost due to Spurs' reported interest in their goalkeeper Dean Henderson.
