Kane, a self-proclaimed Tottenham legend, decided to part ways with the club he had been with for 19 years in order to challenge for the title. With one year remaining on his contract, he did not renew, hinting that he would be leaving the team.
Many big clubs such as Manchester United and PSG (Paris Saint-Germain) showed interest in signing Kane, but Munich was the final winner. At the time, Munich had difficulties in negotiations as Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy showed a stubborn attitude, but on the 23rd, he succeeded in signing Kane while reaching an agreement with a transfer fee approaching 100 million euros (approximately 143 billion won).
At this time, Chairman Levy drew the wrath of Munich by showing an incomprehensible move to demand renegotiation after the negotiations were over to raise the transfer fee even a little more.

Regarding this, Honorary Chairman Uli Hoenes, who is in charge of Bayern Munich, said, “It was a very classic method. All conditions have been met, but one option is added at the end.” At 50:00, there was a request to renegotiate again.”
“Jan-Christian Dresen, the CEO of the club, stuck to the position of ‘I can’t raise a penny’, and Levy finally accepted the existing offer around 9 am on the 11th,” he said. “Then, waiting for Kane The plane was able to take off,” he added.
Although the negotiations continued for a long time, Kane expressed his gratitude, saying, “I am very grateful to Munich” for not giving up until the end and paying a huge transfer fee to sign him.
When asked why he chose to transfer, Kane said, “I felt it was time to take the next step in my career.” “Coach Tuchel wanted to know me and told me why Munich wanted me. explained,” he explained.
“‘We have to win’. Karl-Heinz Rummenigge explained very well that this is the mentality of Munich and that in Munich there is only victory,” he said. “This Munich spirit will make me a better player and take me farther.” he added.

“We were very close to this goal and we had a really good time, but it’s a pity that we didn’t cross the finish line,” Kane said. I want to fight for you,” he said.
Kane, who moved to Munich to win the championship, had a successful league starting debut in the opening match of the Bundesliga. Munich won 4-0 on the 19th in the Bundesliga opening match of the 2023/24 season against Werder Bremen, with Leroy Sane scoring multiple goals, Kane scoring 1 goal and 1 assist, and Matisse Tell scoring 1 goal.
At that time, Kane helped Sane’s opening goal in the 4th minute of the first half and recorded his first attack point after joining Munich. Afterwards, after receiving an Alfonso Davis pass in the 29th minute of the second half, he calmly finished it in a one-on-one situation with the goalkeeper, scoring an additional goal and his debut goal in Munich, making the score 2-0.
After the game, Coach Tuchel commented on Kane’s performance, saying, “It’s not enough to just say ‘good’. It was a really great performance.” “Kane’s goal was a classic itself. I even scored a goal myself. I hope it will continue like this.”
Munich is scheduled to face off in the second round of the Bundesliga in the 2023/24 season, inviting Augsburg to the Illianz Arena at 0:30 am on the 28th. With the first home game of the league this season imminent, it is noteworthy whether Kane will be able to continue his scoring streak by scoring two goals in a row by shooting once again.
