Harry Kane has no interest in joining Paris Saint-Germain this summer, leaving Tottenham facing a straight fight with Bayern Munich to keep hold of the striker.

PSG have been heavily linked with Kane in recent days, but Telegraph Sport understands the England captain would turn down an approach from the French club.

While Spurs fans will be pleased to hear that Kane does not want to move to France in this transfer window, it decreases the chance of his price getting significantly pushed up through a bidding war.

Bayern have had two bids for Kane rejected this summer, with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy still wanting more than £100 million for the 29-year-old, despite the fact he only has one year remaining on his contract.

With Manchester United also seemingly out of the race this summer, it now appears that Kane’s two options are to stay at Spurs or move to Bayern if the German club can agree a fee with Levy.

Bayern reiterated their belief that Kane is open to a move to the Bundesliga with chief operating officer Jan-Christian Dressen backing up the claim made by honorary president Uli Hoeness, who said: “Harry Kane has clearly signalled in all conversations that his decision stands - and if he keeps to his word, then we’ll get him, because then Tottenham will have to buckle.

“Kane wants to play internationally and luckily for us Tottenham will not be active internationally next year.”

Dressen added: “It is well known that we are very interested in him [Kane]. And what Uli Hoeness said is correct. But it’s best for us to go with the coach who said ‘the grass doesn’t grow faster if you pull on it’.”

Kane’s decision that he does not want to join PSG could result in the Ligue 1 club turning their attention to Juventus striker Duscan Vlahovic, which could then open the door to Chelsea outcast Romelu Lukaku moving to Turin.

On Kane’s future, Tottenham head coach Ange Pstecoglou said: “He’s here and while he’s here, he’s totally committed to what we’re doing, and that’s the way I’ve seen things.

“No one has spoken to me from Munich. If other clubs want to talk about our contracted players, that’s more of an issue for them than us.

“We’ve got nearly a month until the season starts, the transfer window’s still open, so we’ll see what transpires.”

Tottenham are prepared to hand Kane a new contract worth £400,000-a-week and discuss a post-playing career at the club with their star man, but he has so far shown no intention of putting pen to paper in this transfer window.
