Kane is considering a return to the Spurs.
Dharmesh Sheth of Sky Sports has attempted to put a damper on Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane’s potential move to Bayern Munich:
According to Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth, Tottenham striker Harry Kane is more likely to sign a new contract with the north London club than join Bayern Munich next summer. The German giants are said to be interested in the England captain, but Sheth believes he is “leaning towards” staying at Hotspur Way.
Despite admitting that Spurs have rekindled their relationship with Kane, Sheth told GiveMeSport: “That’s not to say that Bayern Munich aren’t interested.” And, according to Sky Germany reporters, they are a “number nine club.” They adore the number nine. They’ve had one of the best in the business in Robert Lewandowski for the last seven or eight years, who has now left, and they’re now trying to play in a different way. They’ve brought in Sadio Mane, who won’t be playing alongside someone like Lewandowski.”
“They tried to get Erling Haaland, but that was never going to happen after City came in with that bid and whatever wages they were paying him.” However, Bayern Munich’s Bundesliga campaign has not started as well as they would have liked. As a result, I believe they will look to strengthen that position, and they have long been fans of Harry Kane.”
It’s too early to tell who — or what — to believe about Bayern Munich’s possible pursuit of Kane. It would certainly make sense for the Bavarians, who appear to be in need of a true focal point for their attack. Kane, on the other hand, is an Englishman through and through…and it may be difficult to persuade him to leave the comforts of home in favor of a future in Germany.
ICYMI: Bayern Munich has a new mascot… Berni was caught leering salaciously (@FCBayernEN).
Bayern Munich introduced a new mascot, “Mia,” and it only took the Bern Man three seconds to stare creepily in her direction:
This could explain why Berni “got in shape” (Berni does not have a “nose problem,” is not on a Dianabol cycle, and is not doing both at the same time…we swear).
Davies is a people’s champion (@CanadaSoccerEN) Impressive move by Bayern Munich star Alphonso Davies, who stayed late to take pictures and sign autographs for fans while playing for the Canadian national team:
Season 2, Episode 12 of the Weekend Warm-up Podcast
Despite the fact that most of Bayern Munich’s players are on international duty with their national teams, there is a lot of news coming out of Säbener Straße.
This is what we’ve got planned for this episode:
What to watch for as Germany takes on Hungary and England.
An examination of the current drama emanating from Bayern Munich…
Players expressing dissatisfaction with the system? Nagelsmann not being tough enough on the players? Players dissatisfied with Nagelsmann’s criticism? The front office wants Nagelsmann to be more aggressive?
Trying to make sense of House of the Dragon.
Man…there’s a lot to talk about this week, and we’ve got a lot to say about it all, so take a look.
Gvardiol did not consider a move to Chelsea and is instead focused on developing at Leipzig (@FabrizioRomano).
For the time being, highly sought-after defender Josko Gvardiol will remain with RB Leipzig — and claims he didn’t give Chelsea FC much thought:
Josko Gvardiol on Leipzig’s rejection of Chelsea’s bid: “I didn’t give that negotiation much thought. It’s only my second year, and I’m still learning – but I’m happy in Leipzig “. #CFC Chelsea could make a new bid in January: “We’ll see what happens in the winter,” says Gvardiol. pic.twitter.com/iXG75Y4UMX September 22, 2022 — Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano)
Mourinho appears in a Stormzy video (@GRMDAILY).
I have no idea who Stormzy is (nor do I care, though I’m sure he’s a talented musician? Performer? Artist? ), but Jose Mourinho appears in his latest video:
ESPN provided some context for what occurred:
After a three-year hiatus, premier British grime star Stormzy caused waves on social media on Thursday night when his brand new track dropped without warning. The 29-year-old released a new song, “Mel Made Me Do It,” along with a 10-minute promo video featuring cameos from celebrities ranging from Louis Theroux to Usain Bolt.
Halfway through the epic track there is also a surprise appearance from one Jose Mourinho, who appears alongside Stormzy with his finger pressed to his lips while sampled audio of his famous “I prefer not to speak” postmatch quote plays. Following the release of the song, the AS Roma coach posted an Instagram photo of himself and Stormzy with a message thanking the rapper for including him in the project. “It was a lot of fun doing this cameo for Stormzy’s new music video, which is out today.” “I had a fantastic time,” the 59-year-old Portuguese said.
This means Mourinho is cooler than me…damn it.
Mbappe is a whiner (Sky) Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe is one of the world’s greatest talents, but he’s also a huge baby:
Kylian Mbappe has made a thinly-veiled dig at PSG by claiming he has ‘more freedom’ when playing in the French national team than he does at club level. The 23-year-old shone in France’s 2-0 Nations League win over Austria on Thursday night, scoring the opening goal before Olivier Giroud sealed the victory with a well-placed header.
After the game, the PSG star said: “What they ask of me here is different. I have a lot more freedom here than I did at PSG. The coach knows that there is a ‘9’, like Giroud, and so I can move and go to space. In Paris it is different, they ask me to play pivot, although I enjoy everywhere.”
When will this guy be happy?
Bavarian Podcast Works: Postgame Show — Germany 0-1 Hungary in the UEFA Nations League (Bavarian Football Works)
Germany knew it would have a strong challenge against a very game and aggressive Hungary side and that is exactly what Hansi Flick’s boys got during a 1-0 victory for the Hungarians.

Nothing came easy for Germany and an early goal for the Hungarians put the Germans in a very uncomfortable spot for the match. Let’s take a look at what we have on tap for this episode:
