Harry Kane, a scorer for Tottenham Hotspur, has agreed to move to German winners Bayern Munich, according to Bild, a German newspaper. The two clubs have made a preliminary deal for his transfer.
If it goes through, Kane’s move would cost about 100 million euros, which would make it the most expensive deal in Bundesliga history.
It was said that the English club and Bayern had agreed to the move on Thursday, but Kane had to agree because he still had a year left on his deal at Tottenham.
So far, neither club has said anything about the issue.
Bild newspaper said, without naming a source, that the player agreed to the deal during the night and is set to sign a four-year contract with Bayern.
Last season, the Bavarians won the league for the 11th time in a row, which is a record. They have been trying hard to sign Kane to improve their attack and compete for the Champions League title again.
Kane joined Tottenham’s youth program when he was 11, and he made his debut with the first team in 2011. He has spent most of his career at the north London club, but he has also spent time on loan at Leyton Orient, Millwall, Norwich City, and Leicester City.
Kane has scored a club record 280 goals in over 430 games for Spurs in all competitions. He has also scored 58 goals for England in 84 games, making him their all-time top scorer.
He also has 213 goals, 47 less than Alan Shearer, who has the most goals in Premier League history.
Bayern’s boss, Thomas Tuchel, will hold a news conference later on Friday, before the team plays RB Leipzig in the German Super Cup on Saturday, which is the first game of the season. The Bundesliga starts next week, and on August 18, Bayern plays Werder Bremen.
