The week-long poker game about the transfer of England star striker Harry Kane to FC Bayern is nearing completion. After the agreement of the clubs, the 30-year-old goalscorer from Tottenham Hotspur also gave his commitment to the Munich team, as the portal “The Athletic” reported on Friday night. The TV broadcaster Sky also wrote that Kane kept his word and wanted to move to Munich.

Kane is to receive a four-year contract at Bayern Munich. The top scorer could already complete the medical check with the German champions on Friday. Kane could already be used against RB Leipzig in the Supercup on Saturday, as the TV broadcaster Sky reported on Friday morning.

According to reports, Bayern and the Premier League club had initially agreed on a record transfer fee, but doubts arose again during the course of Thursday. Sky initially reported that Kane was hesitating to switch again.

The report on the agreement followed that night – FC Bayern can look forward to their long-awaited striker shortly before the start of the season. Kane stands for gates, gates, gates. What kind of guy is this Englishman anyway?

FC Bayern would break a sound barrier for Harry Kane. More than 100 million euros transfer fee – around 100 million would also be added for a rumored four-year contract – to Tottenham Hotspur, the 30-year-old is said to be worth the people of Munich. Kane would thus become by far the record purchase of the Bundesliga. The previous record holder was Frenchman Lucas Hernández, who FC Bayern signed from Atlético Madrid in 2019 for 80 million euros and has been playing for Paris Saint-Germain since the summer.

After Robert Lewandowski’s farewell to FC Barcelona in 2022, the Munich team want a goal machine again. Sadio Mané is gone again after an unsuccessful year, Lewandowski’s former backup Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting does not belong in the world class category and is currently working on his comeback after knee problems. On the other hand, Harry Kane, who has already shown that at Tottenham Hotspur and in the English national team, stands for hits like on an assembly line.

Following the rumored agreement between the clubs, there were reports throughout the day that Kane had doubts, at one point saying the chances of a transfer were ’50/50′. Late in the evening, reports came that Kane stood by his verbal promise and agreed with Bavaria. It seems clear that the transfer must be completed before the weekend before Tottenham start the Premier League season. Kane clearly communicated this deadline days ago.

Harry Kane finally wants to win big titles. So far he hasn’t managed to do that with England’s national team and with Tottenham Hotspur, for example, he hasn’t dreamed of a coup in the Champions League. In 2019, Kane lost 2-0 to Jürgen Klopps Liverpool in the premier class final in Madrid.

With 58 goals in 84 internationals, Harry Kane has become the top scorer in Three Lions history – ahead of Wayne Rooney, Bobby Charlton and Gary Lineker. He has also provided impressive numbers in the Premier League so far. With 213 goals, he is only behind Alan Shearer (260) in the all-time top scorer list.

As a classic goalscorer, Harry Kane wears the number 9 jersey for the national team. However, he chose the number 10 jersey for Tottenham Hotspur. He wanted to follow in the footsteps of club legends such as Glenn Hoddle, Teddy Sheringham and Robbie Keane, explained Kane once. The 10 is bigger and also stands for having more responsibility. In Munich Leroy Sané has the 10, the 9 has been free since Robert Lewandowski left FC Barcelona.

Kissing the wedding ring after a goal has become a Harry Kane trademark. “Ever since I got married, I’ve had a little tape around my wedding ring. It’s a symbol to give something back to my family,” the striker once explained the ritual. This way the wife and children would see that he was thinking of them.

Harry Kane is married to his childhood sweetheart Katie Goodland. The application was made in 2017 during a beach holiday together. “I can finally marry my best friend! I love you,” Harry Kane proclaimed after the wedding ceremony two years later. The couple have three children. In March, the Kanes announced that they were expecting more offspring after Ivy, Vivienne and Louis. Two Labradors complete the family happiness.
