Thomas Tuchel gives transfer update on Harry Kane and Kyle Walker and explains Joao Cancelo snub | The Sun

THOMAS TUCHEL revealed some of Bayern’s directors have stayed back in Europe as they continue their quest for Harry Kane.

The German giants are the clear favourites to land the England captain from Tottenham this summer.

Tuchel and his squad have flown to Tokyo and will play Manchester City at the Japan National Stadium on Wednesday.

But he said some have not travelled to work on new signings for the season ahead.

He said: “They are doing something it is necessary to do in Europe to support us.”

Tuchel – who is also interested in a move for City’s Kyle Walker – says he will only be thinking about the players he has with him in the Far East.

He added: "The focus is very clear. We focus on the team.

“We focus on the players that are contracted to Bayern Munich and they deserve our full support, our full attention, and appreciation.

"That is what we give them. We push everyone as a team to the limit and then we see what is going to happen.

“We are not the first football team that has changes in the transfer period, we will not be the last.

“The transfer period will go on for another five or six weeks. This is just the situation that we live.

“To be very honest, we do not break our heads too often about it. We have enough to push this team as it is.

“This is why we are here, we want to push our limits, we want to improve and if changes happen, they happen.”

Tuchel was also asked about Bayern’s decision not to sign City defender Joao Cancelo after he spent the last part of the season on loan with them.

The Germans had a £60million option to make the move permanent but passed it up – with the coach suggesting he will spend the money elsewhere.

He said: “It was never football reasons (behind his return). He is a fantastic football player.

“It was just that we Alphonso Davies back, full strength from injury and we decided to sign Rapha Guerrero as a free agent.

“So it was a matter of position and a matter of finance. He helped us a lot in the half a year he played for us. He is a fantastic guy and a fantastic footballer. That is why.”
