Bayern Munich is on the brink of signing England’s star striker, Harry Kane, as he prepares to undergo a medical examination in Germany. Tottenham has granted Kane permission to travel to Bayern after the two clubs reached an agreement exceeding 100 million euros (£86.4 million) for the 30-year-old player. The final decision to proceed with the transfer rested with Kane, who holds the record for the highest number of goals scored for Tottenham, with 280 goals in 435 appearances.
Ange Postecoglou, the manager of Tottenham, confirmed the deal’s proximity, marking Kane’s departure from the club. Kane, whose contract had just one year left, was unlikely to extend his stay with Tottenham. Barring unforeseen complications, Kane’s move is expected to be finalized in time for him to join Bayern Munich at the start of the Bundesliga season next week.
Despite initial speculations linking Kane to Manchester United, the summer negotiations centered on a transfer to Bayern Munich, leaving behind the Premier League. Kane’s potential move to a German club could potentially halt his pursuit of breaking Alan Shearer’s Premier League scoring record, as he needs only 48 more goals to surpass Shearer’s tally of 260.
Kane’s decision to leave Tottenham marks the end of an era, as he has been a prolific goal-scorer for both the club and the English national team. Bayern Munich, on the other hand, continues to press forward to secure the deal, hoping to add the England captain to their ranks and strengthen their position in the upcoming season.
