Harry Kane speaks about ‘mad’ transfer from Tottenham Hotspur to Bayern Munich
Harry Kane has reflected on his ‘mad’ transfer to Bayern Munich from Tottenham Hotspur in the summer transfer window.
Kane’s move to the Bavarian giants in mid-August seemed inevitable. Spurs and Bayern were engaged in drawn-out negotiations, which even involved the English superstar being stuck at the airport waiting for a green light from Spurs to fly to Germany because the two clubs hit a hurdle in their talks.
But eventually, the move was completed. Spurs signed a deal that would see him earn up to £120million for their club’s all-time top-scorer and Bayern got themselves their Robert Lewandowski replacement. He was priceless for Spurs but given that he was 30 and out of contract in 2024, we did well to rake in that amount.
Now, the dust has settled. Fans are starting to get over Kane’s exit from N17 and the English superstar has also adjusted well to life in Munich. In a recent interview with FourFourTwo, Kane talked about how the deal went down and how it was a new experience for him. He said:
“It was a bit of a mad experience to be honest. I didn’t really know what to expect, as I’d been at Spurs for 19 years and was really happy there. I was stepping out of my comfort zone – it was a first for me to feel how these transfers happen, and to be a part of one.
“Last season, all I focused on was Tottenham and trying to help the club finish as high as possible in the table. Once the season finished,
I spoke to Spurs and explained that I felt it was time to move on and push myself as far as possible.
“I then went away on holiday and that’s when talks started progressing. I was confident the clubs would eventually come to an agreement.”
It was a crazy experience for everyone involved. Spurs fans probably started to accept that Kane would move away from Spurs in the future with every passing week that he didn’t sign a new contract here.
When rumours linked him with a big-money move to Manchester City in 2021, it seemed like the writing was on the wall for him to leave Tottenham. As much as he gave the club, he couldn’t win a trophy here, and that would undoubtedly sting him, given he won virtually every individual award out here in England.

Surprisingly, Ange Postecoglou didn’t sign a new striker to replace a man who was consistently giving us at least 20 goals every season. Things have gone well regardless if we ignore the last two Premier League games. James Maddison and Richarlison’s injuries, however, underline the need for a new attacker. Hopefully, Daniel Levy knows that ahead of the January transfer window.
