Is Harry Kane really giving FC Bayern his yes word? In transfer poker for the English star striker, Munich has allegedly made a breakthrough after months of speculation.

According to media reports, the Munich team has agreed on a Kane change with Tottenham Hotspur and its tough club boss Daniel Levy. But does the goalgetter want to change after a long wait?

Tottenham let Kane go – but does he want to?

According to information from “The Athletic”, Kane has agreed to a move to Bayern Munich and has also agreed on the details of a transfer with the German record champions. The online portal reported this early in the morning without citing sources.

According to The Athletic, Kane is now waiting for the green light to travel to Munich for a medical check-up. The star striker has been FC Bayern’s requested transfer for weeks and would be the Bundesliga’s record signing with an expected transfer fee of more than 100 million euros.

Sky Sports in England reported on Thursday, without naming a source, that it was “looking increasingly likely” that Kane would want to stay at Tottenham Hotspur this season after all. However, Sky has now reported that Kane stands by his verbal commitment to switch to Bayern Munich. The TV broadcaster Sky in Germany wrote that the captain of the English national team was hesitating despite the alleged verbal agreement with Munich. No source was given for this either. Kane’s decision is 50/50 at the moment.

Conflict: consultant fees

According to “Bild” there is still a financial problem to be solved. It should also go to consultant fees. The top striker is advised by his father Pat and his brother Charlie, among others. That’s why the Bayern bosses are said to have sought talks with the Kane family and Tottenham again, according to “Bild”.

Transfer windows also always provide a glimpse of the excitement of an industry. And sometimes there are surprising twists – for example in the case of Kane?

Closing the roster gap

With his commitment, Bayern would close the largest construction site in their squad. The England national team’s record goalscorer would rise to become the most expensive signing in the Bundesliga. The previous record holder was Frenchman Lucas Hernández, who FC Bayern signed from Atlético Madrid in 2019 for 80 million euros. The left-back was sold to Paris Saint-Germain this summer for allegedly around 50 million euros including bonuses.

Kane would also rise to become the top earner at Bayern in the foreseeable future and occupy an important place in the hierarchy alongside the currently injured national goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, the no longer untouchable offensive all-rounder Thomas Müller and the midfield driver Joshua Kimmich.

Clarity before the start of the Premier League

But it is still the turn of the Bavarian player of choice. Kane reportedly wanted clarity on his future ahead of the Premier League start this weekend. After intensive rounds of negotiations – between representatives of FC Bayern and Tottenham – as well as allegedly several times improved Munich offers – he can now take care of that himself. Kane and Bayern are said to have agreed for a long time. Recently, however, there have been reports from England that the striker is working well with new Spurs coach Ange Postecoglou. Is Kane just tired of waiting for a move to Bayern Munich this summer?

The people of Munich want to avoid a case of Kyle Walker. FC Bayern is said to have verbally agreed with Kane’s national team colleagues before the full-back decided to stay with Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City. Is such a scenario threatening again?

Kane still has a contract in Tottenham until the summer of 2024. Spurs, especially club owner Joe Lewis, are not ready to lose their star striker on a free transfer. Lewis had therefore called for an immediate sale of Kane if he refused to sign a new working paper in London. Club boss Levy, who has a reputation as a relentless negotiator, now had his turn.

After the departure of goalgetter Robert Lewandowski in the summer of 2022, Munich would have another world-class nine with Kane – and an international prestige boom. Kane “definitely” makes the difference and he “makes you a favorite for the title right away if he finds his way around quickly,” said England football legend Gary Lineker in an interview with “Sport Bild”, speaking of the FC Bayern’s chances of winning the Champions League.

world class level

Kane has been delivering for years – and how. In the past season alone, he scored 30 goals in 38 Premier League games, only Erling Haaland (36 goals) from champions Manchester City was better. However, Kane plays for Tottenham and thus in a much weaker team.

With a total of 213 goals, he is only behind Alan Shearer (260) in the all-time list of the top Premier League goalscorers. The record scorer also scores reliably in the national team. And it is precisely this reliability that has made him interesting for Bayern, among other things.

Munich’s coach Thomas Tuchel knows Kane’s qualities very well, the football teacher used to work in England as a Chelsea FC coach in London. The commitment of the desired player would also provide relief for Tuchel before the start of the compulsory game in Munich with the Supercup on Saturday against RB Leipzig. Unless there’s a twist.
