A COLUMNIST for German newspaper Bild has taken a bizarre swipe at Harry Kane.
They describe the Spurs star as a “30-year-old bone” – while also urging Bayern Munich NOT to spend £100million on him this summer.
Kane, 30, looks set to quit Spurs after almost 20 years at his boyhood club.
The England captain is said to be desperate to link up with former Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel in Bavaria, with wife Kate reportedly househunting in the area.
And a fresh transfer bid from Bayern is expected this week following several failed offers, the last of which was worth £82m.
The Bundesliga champions are now considering meeting Spurs’ £100m valuation for Kane, who has just one year remaining on his deal.

Bayern ‘make £82m bid for Spurs striker Kane’ after talks with Daniel Levy
But doubts have now been cast over the value of the transfer by Bild journalist Raimund Hinko, who has penned an open letter to Bayern chiefs urging them to axe talks.
He can’t believe Tottenham rejected the previous bid of £82m for a player no longer in his twenties who is also a free agent next summer.
Hinko described Kane as an “old bone” who would need a “miracle” to fill Robert Lewandowski’s boots.
And he also took aim at Spurs’ lack of silverware, claiming the last time they were champions of England was in the “Stone Age.”
