Is Harry Kane the New Super Number Nine?

news 27-Jun-2023 Sport

Harry Kane - the name has been circulating since Robert Lewandowski's departure from Sabener Street. Now, the English world-class striker is said to have sent positive signals to FC Bayern. Could the 29-year-old put an end to the persistent center-forward issue?

It took some time, but FC Bayern Munich seems to have found its desired striker. The club is targeting Harry Kane, the attacker from Tottenham Hotspur. According to a media report, FCB has made an initial offer for striker Harry Kane. As reported by "The Athletic" on Tuesday, the Munich side is offering Tottenham Hotspur 70 million euros plus bonus payments for the 29-year-old.

Is a signing imminent? According to "Sky," the captain of the English national team has also given positive signals after the German record champion explored the chances of a transfer with the player's agents.

Harry Kane sees Munich as the destination abroad

It is reported that Kane has conveyed to Bayern that a move to Sabener Street is his goal if the 29-year-old leaves his current club this summer for an overseas engagement. However, this has been the sticking point - transfer rumors are not new, and year after year, Kane has reaffirmed his commitment to Tottenham by the end of the transfer window. Kane - a player with a scoring instinct

Since Robert Lewandowski's departure last summer, Kane has repeatedly been a topic of discussion at Bayern. And the player fits the profile of FC Bayern: Kane is ambidextrous, strong in headers, powerful with his 1.88 meters, and a player with a scoring instinct.

His record: 280 goals and 64 assists in 435 games for Tottenham. He scored 30 goals for Tottenham last season, making Kane one of the best center-forwards in the world. However, he has yet to win a major title. Kane is eager for sporting success.

The club's top officials are also aware that the attempt by the record champion to do without a classic number nine has failed. Kane's name has never been far away in that regard. But an important question remains: What is the transfer fee for the Englishman, who will turn 30 in July? According to, his current market value is 90 million euros. Kane is still under contract with Tottenham until the summer of 2024. There has been much speculation about transfer fees exceeding 100 million euros.

Hoeness recently considered the Kane transfer "completely crazy"

Therefore, in March, honorary president Uli Hoeness did not consider signing Kane feasible. "I think the transfer is completely crazy," said Hoeness. Kane is a "super player," but "last year, Tottenham rejected 160 million euros (transfer fee) from Manchester City. Do you think he will be cheaper this year?"

However, one must not forget: Tottenham does not want to sell Kane to a league competitor, so if he moves abroad, the transfer fee is likely to be lower than the reported 160 million by Hoeness. 80 million euros are being mentioned - the same amount as Bayern's record transfer Lucas Hernandez cost in the summer of 2019. So, the first offer from Munich would be in that range.

Are 70 million euros sensible for a player nearing 30?

But 70 or 80 million for a player nearing 30? There are already controversial discussions about this in various fan forums of the record champion. Many consider Kane too old. They see Mathys Tel as the hope for Bayern. However, the Frenchman is only 18 - he still lacks experience.

He could gain that experience alongside Kane. Because in the previous season, Kane already stated that he could imagine
