Player told Chelsea he would never move to Stamford Bridge in 2021, but Blues still want to buy him

Harry Kane allegedly told Chelsea he would never move to Stamford Bridge when Thomas Tuchel made a move in 2021.

That is according to BILD in Germany.

So, what did the German news outlet write about Harry Kane and Chelsea in full? Let’s take a look…

What’s the story?

Well, BILD were covering a fresh story involving Tuchel reigniting his interest in the England international, as Bayern Munich attempt to bring him to the Allianz Arena this summer.

Within the article, it was stated that Tuchel tried to convince Kane to join him at Chelsea in 2021, and Marina Granovskaia – Director of Football at Stamford Bridge at the time – explored if a deal was possible.

However, the Tottenham No.10 told her that he could never play for the Blues – presumably in fear of completely ruining his legacy at Spurs.

Interestingly, BILD make a point of mentioning that ‘hardly anyone knew’ this information.

Bayern Munich have seen a €70m (£60m) bid rejected for Tottenham and England’s all-time top goalscorer, as Tuchel pushes to finally get the chance to work with Kane.

Chelsea still want Kane

Despite the 29-year-old issuing a firm no to Chelsea back in 2021, it seems as if the Blues haven’t been entirely put off.

A story from talkSPORT claimed that Mauricio Pochettino is desperate for a reunion with Kane at Chelsea, as the Argentine attempts to bring a quality No.9 to Stamford Bridge.

Elsewhere, 90min added that Tottenham went into the summer transfer window expecting an approach from Chelsea for the London-born striker.

As things stand, a move to Bayern Munich looks most likely for Kane, who BILD believe is very interested in joining the German giants this summer.

However, nothing can be ruled out this summer, so make sure to keep an eye on the Tottenham talisman’s situation
