An agreement has been reached in principle between Bayern Munich and Tottenham for the transfer of Harry Kane

Tottenham and Bayern Munich have agreed a deal worth more than 100 million euros (£86.4 million) for England captain Harry Kane.

Kane, 30, has one year left on his Spurs contract and must decide whether to stay or leave.

He is Tottenham’s all-time leading scorer with 280 goals in 435 appearances.

Kane was linked with Manchester United in the summer before Bayern made him their main target.

There has been uncertainty about the striker’s future in London for several seasons, while Bayern bids have been rejected.

An unsuccessful bid on Monday forced the Bundesliga champions to move on to other targets after Spurs rejected a bid on Monday.

As recently as 2021, when Premier League champions Manchester City were interested in signing Kane, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy resisted their interest.

Levy had earlier this year suggested he would not do business with either of the Manchester clubs, so it was unclear whether he would have been willing to sell Kane to another Premier League team.

Due to Kane’s unwillingness to sign a new contract with Spurs, Levy appears to have decided it’s better to sell now than lose him for free next season.

Spurs academy graduate Kane played for the club during pre-season while Bayern negotiations were ongoing, with his last appearance on Sunday against Shakhtar Donetsk.

After his appointment this summer, Ange Postecoglou told Kane he wanted to keep the striker at Tottenham.

Since making his debut for the club in 2012, Kane has won the Premier League Golden Boot three times – in 2015-16, 2016-17 and 2020-21.

Kane needs just 48 more Premier League goals to break Alan Shearer’s scoring record.

In spite of his 58 international goals, England’s all-time leading scorer has never won a major trophy with either club or country.

Bayern, on the other hand, regularly wins silverware in Germany.

Having won the Bundesliga 33 times in a row, the Champions League six times, and the German Cup 20 times, Tuchel’s side have won the Champions League six times and the German Cup 20 times.
