 Bayern Munich players are not satisfied with the team's "mercato"

German footballers from FC Bayern Munich confirmed after Saturday's 2-1 victory over Borussia Mönchengladbach that the club's recent transfer market could have been better and that the team faces serious consequences.

Bayern coach Thomas Tuchel asked to sign Balinha because he was looking for a player for this position. Tuchel said: This is very sad.

Bayern also failed to fill the gap left by right-back Benjamin Pavard, who moved to Inter Milan. His successor, Josip Stanistic, also arrived on loan at Bayer Leverkusen before reaching an agreement with Inter Milan.

Kane at Bayern Munich to succeed Lewandowski

Approximately a year after the departure of the Polish top scorer Robert Lewandowski to Barcelona, ​​FC Bayern Munich allocated 100 million euros to find a replacement for him and sign 30-year-old English captain Harry Kane on Saturday, who aspires to the first important title of the story. his career.

Kane had a contract with the Bavarian team until 2027 after they reached an agreement with the English club Tottenham to transfer the 30-year-old forward for an estimated value of 100 million euros (110 million dollars), the highest in the Bundesliga history, whose contract with the team in north London would expire next year.

Kane said: Bayern is one of the biggest clubs in the world. I have always said that I wanted to compete at the highest international level. The winning mentality characterizes this club.

On Thursday, the two teams reached a final agreement and the player gave the final green light to the evening by saying goodbye to the Tottenham fans in a video broadcast on social networks.

After his flight was delayed several hours, Kane arrived in Munich on Friday night to undergo a routine medical examination and prepare for his contract with the Bundesliga champion of the last 11 years.

According to German newspapers, the value of the operation is 100 million euros plus 10 million bonuses.

Tottenham's new Australian coach, Ange Postecoglou, revealed on Friday that the London club's top scorer is close to signing for Bayern.

Kane scored 280 goals in 435 games for the north London team and is the top scorer in the history of the English national team (58), but he did not win any major title at club or national team level, while Bayern won the german league title in the last 11 years.

Bayern coach Thomas Tuchel said on Friday that completing the six-time European champion's contract was “one of his top priorities.”

Talks between the two clubs lasted several weeks, as Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy, known for his skill in handling deals, demanded a high price for loaning the club's all-time top scorer, even though he knew that the Kane's contract expires in June 2024 and he may end up on a free deal.

In general, FC Bayern does not spend large amounts of money on signing players compared to many of its European competitors.

The announced figure exceeds the previous record of 80 million euros paid in 2019 for the services of French defender Luca Hernández from Atlético de Madrid in Spain, who recently transferred him to his compatriot Paris Saint-Germain.

Bayern have been looking for a striker since their Polish top scorer, Robert Lewandowski, moved to Barcelona at the end of the 2021-2022 season after scoring 344 goals in 375 games.

Bayern suffered from Lewandowski's absence last season, particularly after Senegalese striker Sadio Mane, who joined from Liverpool, failed to make an impact. This summer he moved to Al-Nassr Saudi Arabia after just one year in the Bundesliga.

Number 9 

Kane, who began his career at Tottenham at the age of eleven and won the league's top scorer title three times, will wear the number 9 for Bayern, which is no longer on the list of "record champions" since Lewandowski's departure. in the summer of 2022 can be found.

With the England team, Kane won the title of top scorer at the 2018 World Cup in Russia and was the best passer at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, but the journey of the “Three Lions” ended in the semifinals and quarterfinals. -ends. He came close to winning his first title in the last European Cup, but was denied by Italy in the final at Wembley in the summer of 2021.

Kane, who began his professional career at Tottenham in 2011, has all the attributes of a lethal goalscorer: strong on the header, foxy in the area and not bad with his left foot. He is considered the traditional number 9 player due to his ability to participate and set up attacking groups.

With Tottenham he reached the League Cup final twice (2015 and 2021), was runner-up in the Premier League in 2018 and, above all, in the Champions League final in 2019, when he lost 2-0 against his compatriot Liverpool. With 213 goals, he is the second highest scorer in Premier League history, behind only Alan Shearer (260).

With Bayern, six-time European champions, he hopes to marry titles.

This is what Bayern's website quotes him as saying: "Of course I will start in the Super Cup (Saturday against Leipzig) and I hope to play a role." I spoke briefly with the coach, but I will meet him with the team in the morning (Saturday). .meet and try to integrate as quickly as possible.
