Harry Kane officially completes €115m move to Bayern Munich after 20 years at Spurs

Bayern Munich have completed the signing of England striker Harry Kane from Tottenham Hotspur on a four-year contract, the clubs announced.

Harry Kane has formally completed his permanent transfer from Tottenham Hotspur to Bayern Munich today as announced by both Bayern Munich and Tottenham’s social media handles and websites.

The deal, as previously reported is an offer in excess of €100 million ($110m) fixed fee, plus an additional €20m in add-ons until 2027, following weeks of negotiations.

Kane completed his medical on Friday after flying to Germany, before being officially confirmed by the German Club hours ago. The deal is said to have surpassed the previous record €80m (£68m) they spent on Lucas Hernandez from Atletico Madrid in 2019.

“I’m very happy to be a part of FC Bayern now,” Kane said.

“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. This club is defined by its winning mentality – it feels very good to be here.”

However, shortly before the deal was officially confirmed, the 30-year-old posted a message on his social media account in which he said,

“I wanted to be the first to tell you Tottenham fans that I’ll be leaving the club today.”

“Obviously a lot of emotions going through me right now; sad to be leaving the club I’ve spent nearly 20 years of my life at, from 11-year-old boy to a 30-year-old man now.”

“There’s been so many great moments and special memories, memories that I will cherish forever.”

“I felt like it was the time to leave. I didn’t want to go into the season with a lot of unresolved future talk.”

“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 so I wish Ange (Postecoglou) and all the boys all the very best of luck.”

“I’ll be watching from a fan point of view now and really hope the team can be successful.”

The chief executive of Bayern, Jan-Christian Dreesen commented that their pursuit of Kane had been a lengthy journey but emphasized that Kane had been their “ultimate dream player” right from the beginning.

“He is a perfect fit for us and the club’s DNA in terms of both football and character,” he added.

“World-class centre forwards have always been an important factor when FC Bayern has celebrated its greatest triumphs, and we’re convinced that Harry Kane will continue this success story.”

“Our fans can look forward to one of the best goal scorers of our time.”

Kane departs Tottenham after scoring a total of 280 goals, establishing himself as the club’s highest-ever goal-scorer.
