Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, an executive at Bayern Munich, claims that Harry Kane got back to him right away to talk about leaving Tottenham Hotspur.
After a terrible season for the team the previous year, Tottenham supporters most likely knew that Harry Kane’s time was up.
Despite Kane’s continued incredible play, Spurs as a team had a chaotic season and fell well short of expectations.
Kane chose to leave the team in favor of a high-profile transfer to Bayern Munich because he could not wait to stay any longer.
Despite smashing 22 goals in 19 games for Bayern, the 30-year-old is four points behind Bundesliga leaders Leverkusen.
Harry Kane’s departure from Tottenham is discussed by Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.
Bayern is hoping that having a striker of Kane’s caliber will benefit them later on in both the Bundesliga and the Champions League.
This was significant not only for Bayern but also for German football as a whole; Premier League raids the Bundesliga more often than the other way around.
Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, a board member and Bayern legend, has now discussed the move with the Daily Mail.
Rummenigge says he texted Kane just to broach the subject of moving to Bavaria.
Rummenigge continued by saying that Kane’s quick response was “not the norm” in the contemporary era.
Although it was assumed that Kane would take some time to respond, as many do, he did so right away, indicating what appeared to be a strong desire to move forward.
“That’s not typical in the WhatsApp world. I texted him and said I wanted to talk to him on the phone, and he responded in two minutes,” Rummenigge said.
Although Kane was obviously ready to move on, we don’t believe his relationship with Tottenham is in any way damaged.
Yes, the transfer disappointed Tottenham supporters, who undoubtedly thought Kane would stay and become a Spurs legend.
We still believe that Kane could rejoin Tottenham and continue his career there, and given what we’ve heard about his communications with Bayern, Spurs will be hoping for a similarly quick response on any move.
