Harry Kane has officially sealed his transfer to Bayern Munich, marking the end of his illustrious 19-year journey with Tottenham Hotspur. The England captain signed his contract with Bayern Munich and successfully underwent a comprehensive medical examination in preparation for his £100 million move.
The prolific striker, who holds the record for the highest number of goals scored in Tottenham’s history, penned his contract with Bayern in the early hours of Saturday morning, around 2 am UK time. Kane expressed a whirlwind of emotions, acknowledging the bittersweet nature of his departure from Tottenham. In a heartfelt video posted on his social media, he conveyed his gratitude to the fans and teammates for the cherished memories and unforgettable moments shared throughout his tenure.
Kane’s announcement was complemented by an official statement from Bayern Munich, confirming the signing through their platform, previously known as Twitter, on a contract that extends until June 2027.
The 30-year-old striker’s journey to Bayern Munich included completing the first phase of his medical assessment at Barmherzige Bruder hospital in west Munich upon his arrival on Friday night. The final phase of his medical was conducted at Bayern’s Sabener Strasse training center.
While there is a possibility that Kane could make his debut for Bayern Munich in the German Super Cup on Saturday, his registration must be completed by 2 pm UK time on the same day to participate in the match at the Allianz Arena.
The high-stakes transfer deal between Tottenham and Bayern Munich involves an initial £86 million fee, with additional add-ons taking the overall price tag close to £100 million—a record-breaking fee for Bayern and the Bundesliga.
Bayern’s pursuit of Kane was described as the club’s “highest priority” by manager Thomas Tuchel. The transfer saga was accompanied by speculations that Kane’s permission to travel to Germany had been denied by Tottenham. However, these reports were swiftly dispelled, and Kane eventually made his way to Munich via a private jet from London Stansted airport.
As Kane embarks on this new chapter of his career, he leaves behind a remarkable legacy at Tottenham, having scored an impressive 280 goals in 435 appearances. His 213 goals in 320 Premier League matches place him just 48 goals shy of breaking Alan Shearer’s longstanding record as the highest scorer in Premier League history.
This strategic move to Bayern Munich is expected to provide Kane with the platform to contend for major trophies and pursue his dream of Champions League success.
