Harry Kane in line to get dream shirt number for Bayern Munich as agreement reached

Harry Kane in line to get dream shirt number for Bayern Munich as agreement reached

Harry Kane is set to get iconic Bayern Munich shirt number when he puts pen to paper at Bayern Munich.

Harry Kane is set to get an iconic Bayern Munich shirt number once he completes his transfer to the club.

Bayern have been desperately trying to sign the Spurs striker and negotiations have been going on throughout the summer.

But it was the fourth bid, believed to be worth £86.4 million, which was accepted by Spurs on Thursday morning - paving the way for a sensational summer move.

On Thursday evening, it was widely reported that Kane had been given permission by Spurs to travel to Germany for a medical and sign a four-year deal.

Kane will earn more than double his current wages at Bayern, raking in £480,000-a-week (£25 million-a-year).

He will of course be in contention for major trophies, with Bayern having won the Bundesliga 11 times on the trot.

Bayern have been on the hunt for a new talisman ever since Robert Lewandowski left for Barcelona and the club are planning to allocate that coveted No.9 shirt to their new marquee signing.

Kane wears the number for England, where he is nation's record goalscorer with 56 goals. He debuted at Spurs wearing the No.37 before shifting to No.18 in the 2014/15 campaign, where he smashed in 31 goals in all competitions.

The 30-year-old was awarded the No.10 ahead of the 2015/16 season and has worn it with distinction ever since.

That number is currently occupied by Leroy Sane, while the No.17 is free after Sadio Mane left Bayern for Saudi Pro League side Al Nassr.

"I feel like 10 for Spurs was a bit of a number – Robbie Keane, Glenn Hoddle, players like that, Teddy Sheringham," Kane told BT Sport when discussing shirt number preferences.

“I just felt like I wanted to be No.10 for Tottenham. The No.9 for England I feel like is a bigger number for a striker – there have been some great No.9s.

“To be fair, growing up in the youth team days I would wear No.10 a lot, I kind of played in that No.10 role, so I always enjoyed the number.

“I just thought at Tottenham that the 10 was a bigger number and more responsibility."

Last month, a German journalist brought a Bayern shirt with Kane No.9 on the back to a Spurs press conference and was scolded by manager Ange Postecoglou, who said: "Did you get a good laugh there? You've come a long way for that. Thank you."
