Harry Kane joins Bayern Munich on a long-term deal


Former Tottenham Hotspur forward Harry Kane has officially completed his move to Bayern Munich.

The news was confirmed on the official website of Bayern Munich on Saturday, August 12, 2023. The 30-year-old England striker has agreed on terms with the Bundesliga Champions until June 30, 2027, and will wear the number 9 jersey, which was previously worn by Robert Lewandowski.

He expressed his excitement as he begins his new adventure in Germany.

"I am 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. This club is defined by its winning mentality, it feels very good to be here."

Kane is going to be a big addition to this Bayern squad as they compete for every competition this season (2023/24). He played 435 competitive games for Spurs and scored 280 goals, making him the club's record goalscorer.

The English international was the Premier League's top scorer in 2016, 2017 and 2021 and has the second-highest total in league history after Alan Shearer.
