Postecoglou expects Harry Kane to feature in Spurs' Premier League opener

Updated: Aug 8, 2023

The Bundesliga champions submitted a £86 million bid for Kane and expressed their desire to secure the services of the Englishman.

Spurs manager Ange Postecoglou insists that he is working towards starting the 2023-24 Premier League campaign with striker Harry Kane upfront after he netted four in Sunday’s friendly win against Shakhtar.

Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich submitted a £86 million bid for Kane and expressed their desire to secure the services of the Englishman before the DFL Super Cup against RB Leipzig on Saturday.

'There's no doubt I'd use Harry,' said Postecoglou, when asked whether Kane will be available for their league opener against Brentford this weekend.

'He's a fantastic striker, one of the world's best. The way the team plays will help him. He loves scoring goals, we created a load of chances today and he was the beneficiary.'

Tottenham boss Postecoglou added: 'There's one deadline and that's the end of the transfer window. Beyond that, I'm in open dialogue with Harry and the club on a regular basis.

'I've told them if the status quo changes, inform me. I don't need to know the comings and goings in between. I just want to deal with what's in front of me because, irrespective of the outcome of that, I'm building a team here.

'I can't wait around for a decision either way to get going. We don't have the time or the luxury to do that. I'm working with what's in front of me. You saw today that Harry certainly is invested in what we're doing and we'll keep on doing that unless something changes.'

The Australian also expressed his disappointment at Bayern's pursuit of Kane. 'What is factual right now is that he is a contracted player of our football club,' said Postecoglou. 'I certainly wouldn't talk about contracted players at other football clubs but I'm not at Bayern, so they can go the way they want.'
