Harry Kane agrees to join Bayern

Tottenham striker Harry Kane has agreed to join Bayern Munich from Tottenham in a deal worth in excess of €100m (£86.4m).

The 30-year-old was expected to travel to Germany to undergo a medical ahead of signing a four-year contract. However, confusion reigned on Friday morning as a last-minute hitch delayed his travel plans.

Kane, who set a deadline of Sunday to resolve his future, is due in Germany on Friday to undergo a medical ahead of signing a four-year contract with the Bundesliga champions.

Bayern are hopeful that Kane will be in attendance for Saturday’s Super Cup clash with RB Leipzig, perhaps even playing a role in the match if all goes to plan.

Bayern made their first bid for Kane in June and Spurs chairman Daniel Levy rejected three offers from the German champions before accepting the fourth.

They even went public in their pursuit of Kane, with Herbert Hainer, the chairman, acknowledging negotiations between all parties. “Bayern always try to bring in stars,” Hainer told Kicker, the German football magazine.

“Harry Kane is a highly attractive player, the England captain and a top scorer. He would do us and the Bundesliga good.”

The move to Germany, if sealed as expected, will bring an end to Kane’s 19-year association with Tottenham, in which he has racked up 280 goals in 435 appearances.

Kane’s pursuit of Alan Shearer’s all-time Premier League top scorer record will also be halted, perhaps permanently. The 30-year-old has struck 213 times in the competition, 47 fewer than Blackburn and Newcastle icon Shearer.
