Bayern Munich have signed Harry Kane from Tottenham Hotspur with the 30-year-old England striker agreeing terms with the German record champions until 30 June 2027 and will wear the number 9 shirt for the Munich club.
Harry Kane has finally sealed his dream move to Bayern Munich after completing his medicals in the early hours of today and signing the necessary documents and he could make his debut in the cup game against RB Leipzig as he takes the no 9 shirt vacated by Lewandowski.
Kane completed his medical in Bavaria on Friday after Bayern agreed a £100m fee with Tottenham for the England captain and was unveiled as the club’s newest arrival on Saturday morning.
FC Bayern president Herbert Hainer: “Welcome to Munich, Harry Kane! We’re very happy about this top-quality new arrival. The transfer required tenacity, bite and perseverance – my compliments to all those involved in these negotiations at FC Bayern, led by our CEO Jan-Christian Dreesen. Harry Kane will not only strengthen FC Bayern, but also be a real asset to the entire Bundesliga.”
FC Bayern CEO Jan-Christian Dreesen: “It’s been a long process, but now we’re all the happier that Harry Kane will be wearing the Bayern Munich shirt with immediate effect. Harry Kane was our absolute dream player right from the start. He is a perfect fit for us and the club’s DNA in terms of both football and character. 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 goalscorers of our time.”
Harry Kane: “I’m 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.”
Sky Germany reports that VfB Stuttgart striker Serhou Guirassy will make his decision on whether he stays at the club today.
Guirassy has a release clause which is worth 15-20m in his contract that expires today. If no club activates the release clause before the deadline it is likely that the 27-year-old will stay at the club this season.
If a club does show interest in Guirassy after Friday, the cards will be in the hands of Stuttgart who will be in a much stronger negotiating position.
