Harry Kane has 'special' clause in his Bayern Munich contract that could land him huge bonus
| Last updated
Harry Kane needs just 13 more goals or assists to trigger a "special" clause in his £400,000-per-week contract at Bayern Munich, says reports in Germany.
The 30-year-old forward, who joined the Bundesliga side from Spurs this summer for around £86 million, is in the form of his life under Thomas Tuchel.
He is showing no signs of slowing down, either. Kane has scored in his last six games for the German club ahead of their Bundesliga clash against Koln on Friday night.
This week, it emerged that Kane has a clause in his deal that includes "scorer-points".
A report from German publication BILD suggests Kane will receive a payment of €250,000 [£218,000] if he scores more than 40 scorer-points across all competitions in a single season.
Scorer-points are basically another way of saying combined goals and assists, meaning Kane, who is currently on 28 goal involvements for the season, needs just 13 more to bag the clause amount.
On the subject of clause, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has revealed the club have a buy-back clause to re-sign their former player after he joined Bayern Munich in August.
Speaking at a fan forum alongside manager Ange Postecoglou and captain Heung-min Son, Levy said: “There is a buy-back clause" but refused to elaborate on the situation further.
In a statement confirming Kane's departure, Levy also opened up about his contract situation in North London.
"We sought over a long period of time to engage Harry and his representatives in several forms of contract extension, both short and long term," the chairman began. "Harry was clear, however, that he wanted a fresh challenge and would not be signing a new contract this summer.
"We have reluctantly, therefore, agreed to his transfer. Harry’s achievements and records say everything about the player, and throughout his 19 years at the club, Harry has been a model professional, on and off the pitch and an inspiration for young players who dream of following in his footsteps."
