Bayern Munich eye Manchester City discussion over possible loan deal for Harry Kane alternative



| Last Updated:


Manchester City could be subject to an approach from Bayern Munich in the coming weeks, should the Bundesliga side fail in their chase of Harry Kane.

The German giants are targeting a move for the Tottenham and England striker having seen two bids rejected for the centre-forward, in a process that many Manchester City fans will be familiar with following the Etihad club’s own attempts two summers ago.

Given the frustrations being experienced over at the Allianz Arena, Bayern Munich are already considering a number of possibly alternatives, one of which would be to move for one of Manchester City’s current options in attack.

That possibility would stand alongside Bayern Munich’s hopes of securing Kane on a free transfer next summer, however the representatives of the Manchester City star in question have been swift to respond to the mooted plans.

According to the information of BILD’s Christian Falk, should Bayern Munich fail in their pursuit of Harry Kane this summer, then they will instead look to sign the Tottenham frontman as a free agent in the summer of 2024.

In this case, it is further stated that the Bundesliga champions will look towards signing a temporary solution to their striking issues, and as such look to open a dialogue with Manchester City over a possible loan signing of Julian Alvarez.

Alongside the Argentina international, Juventus’ Dusan Vlahovic is also mentioned by BILD as a possible loan option for Bayern Munich.

Those ambitions regarding the Manchester City striker may have already been cut short however, as Alvarez’s representatives have been swift to offer their views on the possibility of 12 months in Munich for their client.

As provided by Fabrizio Romano, Julian Alvarez’s camp are not considering any loan move as a possibility for the ongoing summer transfer window, with that concept being further described as ‘no chance’.

As for the view from Manchester City and perhaps unsurprisingly so, their recent one-year contract extension agreed with the FIFA World Cup winner reaffirms their happiness with the player’s contributions and position within Pep Guardiola’s squad.

Manchester City are currently relatively quiet in the transfer market, and even more so when it comes to the possibility of recruiting and strengthening in forward positions, despite an earlier suggestion being that they would look towards signing a new winger.

Riyad Mahrez and Bernardo Silva however, remain strongly linked with respective moves away from the Etihad Stadium – and both are subject to interest from the Saudi Pro League. Should either or both players secure a move away this summer, then City may be sparked into action.

For now, Julian Alvarez remains very much off the market, as City continue to work towards a deal in defence, as they prioritise signing RB Leipzig and Croatia international central defender Josko Gvardiol in the coming days and weeks ahead.
