In confirmation of Harry Kane’s move to Bayern Munich from Tottenham, the 30-year-old striker has signed a four-year contract with the club and may make his debut at Bayern Munich on Saturday. Kane has posted a farewell message to Spurs, saying that “this was the right time to leave” and that he “will be watching from a fan perspective now, hoping the team will succeed.”
After posting a goodbye message to Tottenham ahead of his move to Bayern Munich, Harry Kane explained why he “felt now was the right time to leave.”
Kane, 30, has signed a four-year contract with the Bundesliga champions for a club record.
According to local news he said “that he wanted to be the first to tell Tottenham fans that he will be leaving the club today,”
“I’m excited and at the same time sad to be leaving the club I have spent nearly 20 years of my life at from an 11-year-old boy to a 30-year-old man, there have been so many beautiful memories , memories that I will remember forever.
“Obviously I built special relationships with a lot of people. And most importantly a thank you to you the Tottenham fans. From the moment I’ve been playing I’ve been one of your own and I’ve given everything that I possibly could to make you proud and give you as many special moments and memories to hopefully last forever.”
Kane had a year to run on his Tottenham contract and leaves just a day before Spurs play Brentford in their 2023/24 Premier League opener.
“I felt like this was the time to leave,” he added.
“I didn’t want to go into the season with a lot of unresolved future talk. I think it’s important for the new manager and players to concentrate on trying to get Tottenham back to around the top of the table and fighting for trophies.
“I wish [Tottenham manager] Ange [Postecoglou] and all the boys the very best of luck. Honestly I will be watching from a fan point of view now and really hoping the team can be successful.
