Harry Kane is heading to Germany for a physical with Bayern Munich after Tottenham accepted their €100 million+ offer for the English striker.
After weeks of lengthy negotiations, Bayern had finally agreed to a deal with Tottenham for more than €100 million (£86 million/$110 million).
Kane was later believed to be “leaning towards” staying in the Premier League, but the tale has now taken a fresh turn, with the 30-year-old agreeing to join the Bundesliga champions on a four-year contract, according to The Athletic.
Harry Kane will have his medical on Friday and might sign with Bayern by the end of the day. Kane is expected to take over the No.9 shirt left vacant by Robert Lewandowski’s departure to Barcelona a year ago, but he is now highly unlikely to play for Spurs against Brentford on Sunday.
Tottenham might now pursue Chelsea outcast Romelu Lukaku to replace Kane, with the Belgian striker in need of a new club.
The England captain will definitely be focused on winning trophies with his new club and will want to make a significant impression in the Champions League in particular.
Indeed, despite being Spurs’ and the Three Lions’ all-time leading goalscorer, he has yet to win any silverware at club or international level.
Harry Kane Agrees to Join FC Bayern Munich
England striker Harry Kane appears to have agreed to join Bayern Munich from Ange Postecoglou’s Tottenham Hotspur.
According to various press reports in the United Kingdom and Germany, Bayern Munich and Tottenham Hotspur reached an agreement on Thursday night, albeit Kane’s readiness to make the move was questioned by several media publications.
Kane, according to The Athletic, has made his decision and is waiting for permission to travel to Munich for a physical.
On Thursday afternoon, Sky Sports reported that Kane was “increasingly likely” to stay at Tottenham Hotspur this season.
However, by the evening, the news organization stated online that Kane would honor his verbal pledge and would move on to Bayern Munich rather than finish out his term at Tottenham.
