Bayern Munich AGREE To Sign Harry Kane



Bayern Munich AGREE To Sign Harry Kane

Harry Kane, a striker for Tottenham, has agreed to sign a contract with Bayern Munich that could be worth up to €120 million ($131 million), according to sources.

Before signing a four-year contract, the 30-year-old was scheduled to fly to Germany for a physical. On Friday morning, though, chaos prevailed as his travel arrangements were hampered by an unexpected problem.

According to sources who spoke to ESPN, Bayern and Tottenham wanted to renegotiate several terms of the transfer deal. Unconfirmed, however one source claimed they were looking for a higher sum in guaranteed payments.

Even though Kane was said to have been waiting at a family house before being given permission to leave the United Kingdom, sources close to Tottenham moved to deny any difficulties with the move and stated he had permission to fly to Germany.

Bayern changed the terms earlier this month and agreed to pay the €100 million asking price plus up to €20 million in add-ons. A deal has now been finalised at that price.

Kane’s decision to leave ends a protracted saga and putting an end to his 19-year affiliation with Spurs.

Tottenham grudgingly accepted Bayern’s fourth offer, which left Kane to make a decision about his future after Bayern had three proposals rejected and set a deadline of last Friday to reach an agreement.

After Ange Postecoglou became the club’s new head coach, sources claim the England captain actually thought about staying to complete his contract, but Kane’s ambition to win trophies ultimately prevailed.

Kane was willing to stay if the two clubs were unable to come to an agreement since he did not want the uncertainty to continue into the current season, but when Spurs accepted Bayern’s most recent offer, Kane decided to accept a transfer.

While at Stamford Bridge, Bayern coach Thomas Tuchel was interested in bringing Kane to Chelsea, and he has now secured his top target to spearhead his team’s attack as they strive for a 12th straight Bundesliga title.

When Kane made it clear he had no interest in signing a new contract this summer, despite Spurs’ willingness to double his salary to £200,000 per week, the club was left to decide whether to risk losing him for nothing the following summer or to take the final opportunity to accept a sizeable fee for a player with 12 months left on his current contract.

Before Tottenham’s first Premier League match, which will be played away at Brentford on Sunday, Postecoglou is scheduled to address the media later on Friday.

With 48 goals remaining, Kane will fall short of Alan Shearer’s all-time record of 213 Premier League goals.
