Oliver Kahn talks about Harry Kane and Cristiano Ronaldo



FC Bayern – Kahn on “Basta” statement at Lewandowski: “The situation has changed fundamentally”

FC Bayern Munich CEO Oliver Kahn has commented on the rumors about strikers Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur) and Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United).

“He’s under contract with Tottenham. Sure, an absolute top striker, but that’s all a dream of the future,” explained Kahn in the picture on sunday. Of the table football recently brought the Englishman into play as a possible successor to Robert Lewandowski, who is moving to FC Barcelona.

Kane still has a contract with the Spurs until 2024. However, a transfer this summer seems unlikely for financial reasons. A concrete poaching attempt in the coming year seems more realistic.

“Now we have to look at getting the squad together for the current season. Let’s see what else happens,” Kahn said meaningfully. The transfer of Matthijs de Ligt from Juventus Turin is said to have priority, he should become the new chief of defense in Munich.

There are also rumors about the French youngster Mathys Tel. Wie L’Equipe and sky report, there is already an agreement between Tel and his family on the one hand and FC Bayern on the other.

Kahn: Mathys Tel “an incredible talent”

Tel’s club Stade Rennes is said to have recently rejected two offers from FC Bayern. The most recent offer for the 17-year-old was reportedly 22 million euros. “Tel is undoubtedly an incredible talent but we’re relaxed. We’re still monitoring the market and trying to keep the squad balanced. Of course that includes players who can still develop if older players take them by the hand,” said Kahn at the BamS.

In addition, Kahn renewed the refusal of Cristiano Ronaldo, who, according to information from SPOX and GOAL wants to leave Manchester United.

“I love Cristiano Ronaldo and everyone knows what a fantastic player he is. But every club has a certain philosophy and I’m not sure if it would be the right signal for Bayern and the Bundesliga if we let him now would get,” he explained, adding: “Such a change does not necessarily fit the ideas that we are pursuing here at Bayern.”

Sports director Hasan Salihamidzic had already confirmed on Saturday that the Portuguese is still not an issue at Säbener Straße. According to reports, CR7 consultant Jorge Mendes even offered his clients to Bayern.

Ronaldo’s goal is to play in the Champions League again next season. The Red Devils clearly missed this in the past season.
