Reports on Thursday say Bayern Munich have have reached an agreement in principle for England captain Harry Kane from Tottenham, for a record fee worth more than €100m.

Both clubs have been in talks for several weeks, as Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy pushed for a higher fee, knowing well that Kane could leave as a free agent by 2024.

Bayern have reportedly submitted their final bid for the 30-year-old striker, breaking through the 100-million-euro barrier for the first time, The Athletic reports.

Bayern had been on the lookout for a striker since the departure of star forward Robert Lewandowski to Barcelona at the end of the 2021-22 season.

Bayern won the Bundesliga in each of the Pole’s eight seasons in Munich, with Lewandowski scoring 344 goals in 375 appearances.

The Bavarians struggled in Lewandowski’s absence last season.

During his eight years in Munich, Lewandowski averaged 30 goals per season. In 2022-23, not one Bayern player hit the 15 league goal mark.

Kane has scored more than 20 league goals in all but three of the past nine Premier League seasons, winning the golden boot on three occasions.

On last season’s scoring chart, Kane finished behind Erling Haaland (36), netting 30 league goals in 2022-23.
