Harry Kane was THE marquee signing of Bayern Munich and the Bundesliga, being the record transfer signing in both cases. With 22 goals and sevenassists, Kane has hit the ground running with the Bavarians. The England captain recalled how everything went down.

“It was a bit of a mad experience to be honest,” Kane recalled (FourFourTwo via @iMiaSanMia). “I didn’t really know what to expect, as I’d been at Spurs for 19 years and was really happy there. So 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.”

Kane was once the subject of a nine-figure transfer to Manchester City in 2019 and said that he spoke to Tottenham Hotspur about his transfer request. “Last season, all I focused on was Tottenham and trying to help the club finish as high as possible in the table,” the 30-year-old explained. “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.”
