Harry Kane transfer saga
Kane’s move was coming from a long time. For a player of his class and ability, not winning trophies must have been the biggest reason for the player’s departure to the Bayern outfit.
Over the recent years, several teams have been reported to be interested in him. Starting with Manchester City and Manchester United. In 2021, he was almost sold to the blue side of Manchester.
The player’s heart was in London, with his boyhood club Tottenham though, where he continued for another 2 years. even in the last campaign, he managed to score 30+ goals. And it is not talked about enough, given that Erling Haaland had the season of his life and could only net 36 goals.
One for the future for Bayern
Even the club’s chairman, Daniel Levy, put out a statement in which he said, “We sought over a long period of time to engage Harry and his representatives in several forms of contract extension, both short and long term,” Levy said.
“Harry was clear, however, that he wanted a fresh challenge and would not be signing a new contract this summer.”
Kane also admitted that he wanted to be a part of the Bayern outfit. “I’m very happy to be a part of FC Bayern now. Bayern is one of the biggest clubs in the world, and I’ve always said that I want to compete and prove myself at the highest level during my career,” said Kane, who will wear the number nine shirt at Bayern and has signed until 2027.
“This club is defined by its winning mentality – it feels very good to be here.”
