Now all Harry Kane has to do is say yes. In the transfer poker for the English star striker, FC Bayern 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.

The decision to move from the Thames to the Isar is now up to the 30-year-old striker, the portal “The Athletic” first reported on Thursday, citing sources in Germany. Accordingly, the London club accepted an offer from Munich of the equivalent of more than 100 million euros on Wednesday. The pay-TV broadcaster Sky also reported on it. In addition to Kane’s approval, there are further details to be clarified.

With Kane’s signing, Bayern would close their squad’s biggest construction site. The record goalscorer of the English national team would become the most expensive signing for Bayern and thus the entire 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.

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.

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.

Kane actually still has a contract in Tottenham until the summer of 2024. Spurs, especially club owner Joe Lewis, are not ready to lose their 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.

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 coach of Chelsea FC 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.
