Update: August 11th, 9:25AM EDT: Kane signs Bayern contract at 2AM in Germany
After a totally insane 48 hour period, former Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane has — reportedly — signed his contract with Bayern Munich.
Transfermarkt journalist Manuel Veth tweeted out the news:

Miguel Delaney of The Independent also tweeted out his account of what went down:

Quite a turnaround when there were still complications 24 hours before kick-off
Well, it’s happening.
Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane reportedly completed the first half of his medical check offsite and is now at Säbener Straße for the second half of the evaluation.
After weeks of speculation, Kane’s move to Bayern Munich appears to be imminent — giving the club the No. 9 it desperately needed ahead of the 2023/24 season.
Let’s take a look at some of the news that is breaking on social media.
