Kane appears poised for a dramatic upheaval in his career.
Kane has entered his final year of contract and is being courted by Bayern Munich, with new Tottenham Hotspur coach Ange Postecoglou asking for an expeditious resolution of this saga – though moving to Germany might not provide Kane with what he desires: team trophies.
- Continue sentimental success search
Kane’s goal with Bayern Munich isn’t purely financial – although he would become their top earner) but rather to leave an indelible mark on history by winning domestic league titles to go along with European Cup wins with Tottenham and England and surpass Alan Shearer’s 48 goal mark.
An affiliation with Bayern would increase domestic success, though this remains far from certain. Over the past two seasons, Bayern have endured three quarter-final exits while Champions League remains an intimidating prospect for any club.
However, top players often see major trophies as irresistibly tempting. Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting won three Bundesliga and one Ligue 1 crown during his time with Bayern, while Thierry Henry captured an unprecedented three-peat with Barcelona even after leaving shortly afterwards for Arsenal. Kane’s achievements would remain unchanged even if he ventures abroad; but such an action may bring up questions as it might cause critics of such moves to voice concerns that such moves would come too early in his career.

- Join Bayern trophy char
Kane may find his European Cup pursuit harder at Bayern; although the German champions are not generally seen as favourites to win next season’s competition. Yet Bayern do boast an exceptional track record on the continental stage: last season they were clear winners of their group and defeated Paris Saint-Germain who many considered potential challengers along the way.
Their pre-season has also started well; although they lost to Manchester City 2-1 on their Far East tour due to Aymeric Laporte’s late goal in Tokyo, Bayern have won all other matches during pre-season. One of Bayern Munich’s more memorable stories involves its treasured collection of silverware; when Reichsmarschall Hermann Goring demanded clubs surrender all trophies for melting down in 1940-41 for use by war effort efforts, Dieter Heidkamp’s wife secretly stored them at their farm until American forces took back over Ascholding in spring 1945.
- Stay at Tottenham
At 29, with plastic ankles and an unfulfilled trophy cabinet, Kane is keen to win some silverware. Joining Bayern Munich would allow him to add team titles to his resume – one of Kane’s goals in life.
Niko Kovac of Bayern Munich has commented that Kane would be an asset in their pursuit of the Champions League treble, so a move to Germany may satisfy his hunger for silverware. If that’s indeed the case, though, then perhaps Bayern would not be best placed to satisfy that thirst.

Daniel Levy has made it no secret of his desire for Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy to receive at least PS100 million for Harry Kane as part of any transfer deal, yet with such an active transfer window underway and the risk of Kane moving on for free next summer could be considerable. Thus it should be taken with care, with White Hart Lane prioritising deals which see Kane remain at White Hart Lane at least another season.

Logic dictates that, should Kane leave Spurs this summer, Bayern would likely be his destination; as Daniel Levy has valued Kane highly.
Bayern under Carlo Ancelotti have not enjoyed as much success in recent seasons, yet their Champions League pedigree remains unparalleled. Bayern are considered favorites to claim victory again this season despite an early exit at this stage of competition; an experience that serves as a timely reminder of how fragile their success may be.
Bayern’s team-oriented style will appeal to Kane in an age of hyperindividualism. His presence will be irreplaceable in an attritional environment; unexpectedly, perhaps even enough to renew his desire for silverware; that may ultimately prove the most important consideration – while everything else can fall into place later via successful transfer agreements.
