England’s team captain, Harry Kane, has officially announced his departure from Tottenham, marking an end to his outstanding career with the club, and paving the way for his transfer to Bayern Munich.
At the age of 30, the striker is ready to sign an impressive contract with the German champions, valued at over 110 million euros (£95 million).
Kane’s departure from Tottenham, where he stands as the all-time highest scorer, encompasses a record 280 goals in 435 matches.
Reflecting on his exit, Kane shared on social media, “Sad to be leaving the club I’ve spent 20 years of my life at.”
His decision to leave has been a topic of speculation throughout the summer, as he had only one year remaining on his contract with Spurs. “I felt this was the time to leave. I didn’t want to go into the season with a lot of unresolved talk,” explained Kane, emphasizing the need for focus for Tottenham’s new manager and team.
Kane continued, “I think it’s important for the new manager and the players to concentrate on trying to get Tottenham back to around the top of the table and fighting for trophies.”
A three-time winner of the Premier League Golden Boot – for the 2015-16, 2016-17, and 2020-21 seasons – Kane has scored 213 goals in 320 matches in England’s top division. He was only 48 goals short of surpassing Alan Shearer’s Premier League scoring record.
Despite being England’s all-time leading scorer with 58 international goals, Kane has yet to secure a major trophy with either his club or country.
Further details and updates are expected to follow.
