Bayern have been linked with Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane for months.
According to a report, however, the people of Munich allegedly see little chance of a transfer.
Munich – He is considered one of the best center forwards in the world: Harry Kane from Tottenham Hotspur.
Very dangerous in front of the goal, instinctive in the box, robust as a wall player against the defense - the Englishman would also meet the requirements of FC Bayern.
FC Bayern: Munich are still looking for a center forward
As is well known, the German Bundesliga record champions have been looking for a "real nine" for months, for a center forward of the old school, after the Polish superstar Robert Lewandowski left Säbener Strasse in Munich last summer.
And with him his unique hit record, which not only distinguished him in the Allianz Arena.
In numbers: in the past two Bundesliga seasons alone, 2020/21 and 2021/22, Lewandowski scored 76 goals in 63 appearances.
There were also 18 goals in 16 Champions League games – an outstanding rate.
Which Bayern have not been able to compensate to this day, as the first two match days after the winter break proved.

As much as Eric may hit Maxim Choupo-Moting (33 years old).
As with the 1: 1 of Munich at RB Leipzig at the beginning of the year.
A bland 1-1 draw against 1. FC Köln followed, a draw in which, despite a 15-0 shot on goal in the second half, the penetrating power in front of the opponent's goal was ultimately lacking.
And so the longing for a world-class centre-forward has apparently not been satisfied to this day, despite “Choupo” having scored seven goals in twelve Bundesliga appearances.
Harry Kane: Tottenham star in Bayern's focus
What goes with it: the name Kane has been rumored in the Isar metropolis for months.
Bayern have made no secret of their admiration for the England captain, while Chelsea's Kai Havertz is said to be a belated candidate to succeed Lewandowski.
"I can't talk about players who play somewhere else," said sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic on the soccer program "Sky90" in early November.
And then said: "He is one of the best strikers in the world." Sky expert and record national player Lothar Matthäus put it into perspective at the time: "I assume Hasan is not allowed to confirm that Bayern is dealing with Harry Kane.
It would be negligent if not.”
I can't imagine that these are amounts that FC Bayern want or can pay.

But: The belief of the Bayern bosses that they can actually lure Kane from the island to the Bavarian foothills of the Alps is said to be limited.
"Bayern are pessimistic about really landing this transfer," said Sky reporter Florian Plettenberg on the program "Transfer Update - the show".
Even more: According to information from Sky Italia reporter Gianluca Di Marzio, Kane is willing to prematurely extend his contract with Spurs, which runs until summer 2024.
Talks between his agents and Tottenham are already underway.
Harry Kane to Bayern?
Uli Hoeneß dismisses it
As a reason for such a scenario, Sky said that the 29-year-old attacker – market value according to
90 million euros – was aware of his exceptional position in the capital club.
Because: Kane is a native Londoner.
And Tottenham has its home in the north of the British metropolis.
Previously, Bayern patron Uli Hoeneß had personally dismissed it.
"He's a great player," said Munich's honorary president recently in "Doppelpass" from Sport1: "But that's an order of magnitude - I know that Manchester City dropped out at 140 or 150 million last year.
And I can't imagine that these are amounts that FC Bayern want or can pay."
