Harry Kane has officially completed his move to Bayern Munich and there is a possibility that he could make his debut for the Bundesliga champions in the German Super Cup final. Meanwhile, Chelsea and Liverpool are still engaged in a battle to secure a deal for Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo.
The transfer saga surrounding Kane reached its climax on Friday when he waited in his car for the green light to travel to Munich. Eventually, he signed the paperwork for a £120m deal at 2am German time on Saturday morning. Kane will wear the number-nine shirt for Bayern and may even feature in the German Super Cup against RB Leipzig, as Tottenham and chairman Daniel Levy agreed to a total package of £120m with add-ons, with £105m guaranteed, and £86m upfront. Kane posted a goodbye message to Spurs fans following the confirmation of his move.
Chelsea is still in negotiations with Brighton for the transfer of Moises Caicedo, but the ongoing delay could work in Liverpool’s favor. Both clubs have also been competing for Southampton’s Romeo Lavia. The Premier League has kicked off with Manchester City defeating Burnley 3-0 in the opening game on Friday night. We will provide updates on all the latest transfer news.
In his first interview with Bayern Munich, Kane expressed his excitement about joining one of the biggest clubs in the world. He stated that he wants to continue improving and testing himself on the highest level. When asked about Bayern, Kane mentioned their winning culture and the numerous trophies they have won.
Kane’s transfer to Bayern Munich was not without its doubts and complications. Real Madrid and Manchester United were still considered as potential destinations for the England captain. However, they did not meet Levy’s price, and Bayern Munich ultimately secured the deal.
Kane expressed his happiness about joining Bayern and his eagerness to get to know the city, his teammates, and the coaching staff. He described Munich as a top team with a strong winning culture and is looking forward to the challenge.
In other transfer news, Liverpool has offered a higher bid than Chelsea for Moises Caicedo. However, Chelsea is trying to secure both Caicedo and Romeo Lavia from Southampton. There are doubts about whether Chelsea can make both deals work without significant sales, and they even dropped their interest in Tyler Adams from Leeds United.
Despite late negotiations between Bayern Munich and Tottenham Hotspur regarding the exact makeup of the fee, Kane is set to complete his move to Bayern. The parties were still negotiating on Friday, but Spurs chairman Daniel Levy got the deal he wanted. Kane is expected to start in Saturday’s German Super Cup against Leipzig.
The Premier League season started with a familiar sight, as Erling Haaland picked up where he left off last season. He scored two goals in Manchester City’s 3-0 victory over Burnley, reaffirming his position as the league’s top scorer. Haaland’s first goal came just 185 seconds into the match, and his second goal exhibited a combination of power and accuracy. Despite receiving an animated tongue-lashing from Pep Guardiola at halftime, Haaland’s performance, along with a goal from Rodri, proved too much for Burnley.
Finally, it has been confirmed that Harry Kane has arrived in Germany to complete his move to Bayern Munich. Tottenham Hotspur manager Ange Postecoglou stated that Kane’s transfer was imminent after negotiations between the clubs reached a breakthrough. The initial fee for Kane is believed to be £100m, with potential add-ons taking the total fee to £120m. Kane has also undergone the first part of his medical with Bayern and is expected to be registered in time for the DFL Supercup.
