Bayern Munich boss Julian Nagelsmann refused to rule out a move for Harry Kane; German champions looking for a Robert Lewandowski replacement after he joined Barcelona this month; Spurs boss Antonio Conte on Bayern’s public interest in Kane: “I think maybe it’s a bit disrespectful”

Antonio Conte has criticised Bayern Munich for being “disrespectful” after publicly declaring their interest in Harry Kane.

Bayern boss Julian Nagelsmann refused to rule out a move for the Tottenham striker after the German club’s chief executive Oliver Kahn had revealed earlier this week that it would be a “dream” to sign Kane.

The Bundesliga champions are searching for a replacement for Robert Lewandowski after the Poland forward joined Barcelona in a £42.5m deal this month.

Asked about Bayern’s pursuit of Kane, following Tottenham’s 2-1 pre-season win at Rangers, head coach Conte said: “Honestly I didn’t hear this. For sure I’m a coach who doesn’t talk about players from other teams.

“I don’t know why [this happened]. The situation at Tottenham is very clear. The plan is very clear with the club. Harry is a part of the project. He is a very important part of the project and yeah only rumours.

“At the same time, I don’t like to speak about players from another club. If I want to do something I go to speak to the club, not through the media.

“I think maybe it’s a bit disrespectful for the other club. This is my way. This is my way to face the situation with other players.”
