Bookmakers Betfair have reacted by slashing the price of Kane joining Bayern before the transfer window closes in September from 11/8 to odds-on 4/6.
Thomas Tuchel’s side have tried and failed with two proposals, the latest being just over £68million with extra add-ons.
But talks continue between the two parties with Bayern CEO Jan-Christian Dreesen having met Daniel Levy for breakfast in London last week.
At the meeting, Levy didn’t name an asking price and no offer was tabled — but Hoeness believes Tottenham will eventually “buckle” if the player stands by his word.
He told German broadcaster Sport1: “Harry Kane has clearly signalled in all conversations that his decision stands – and if it stays, then we’ll get him, because then Tottenham will have to buckle.
“He wants to play internationally and luckily for us Tottenham will not be active internationally next year.
“He now has another opportunity to come to a top club in Europe. What we all like: his advisers are also very pleasant in this case. Up to now, the father and the brother have always stood by what they promised.
“If it stays that way, that’s OK.
“Levy is clever, he doesn’t name a number. First we have to get him to name a number. Of course he plays for time. I think he’s a savvy, super professional, I appreciate him a lot.”
Kane, 29, has entered the final 12 months of his contract and is not prepared to extend his deal in north London beyond the summer of 2024.
But that hasn’t deterred Spurs, who’ve offered Kane a lucrative new deal that would significantly improve his £200,000-a-week terms.

New Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou has spoken with Kane, but the chat was “nothing earth-shattering”.
Postecoglou said: “I had a good chat with Harry.
“It was nothing earth-shattering as people are seeking. Just a good chat, introduced myself, and we spoke mainly about the club, where it’s at and where he thinks can improve.
“It’s not a specific vision for one person, it’s about the group and we’re perfectly aligned on that – we want to see a successful team this year.”
French publication RMC claim PSG are ready to ‘accelerate’ their search for a new striker with Kylian Mbappe now odds-on to leave for Real Madrid this summer.
However, various reports suggest that Kane has no interest in joining the French giants, meaning it’s Bayern or nothing for the attacker.
Betfair have PSG priced at 6/1 to win the battle for Kane, ahead of Manchester United and Real Madrid, who are offered at 16/1 and 20/1 respectively.
