Football Manager has simulated Tottenham's 2023/24 season without Harry Kane, the results are incredible

Bayern Munich have reached an agreement with Tottenham to sign Harry Kane - and Football Manager has simulated how Spurs' season could go if the England international leaves.

The deal is worth €100 million (£86.4 million) - a club-record fee for Bayern.

It is now up to Kane to decide whether he wants to move to the Bundesliga champions, or remain in north London. His contract at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium expires next year.

If he does leave, Spurs will have to deal with a season without their star frontman for the first time in over 10 years.

And while excitement is building over Ange Postecoglou's reign, the loss of Kane would certainly have a huge impact.

And Football Manager has simulated how Spurs would get on without the England captain - and the results are sensational.

Spurs start off with a change of shape compared to last season, with Postecoglou shifting to a 4-3-3 formation.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg sits at the base of midfield, with Dejan Kulusevski the one to replace Kane - playing in a false nine role.

Interestingly, there's no room for new signing James Maddison, with Yves Bissouma preferred in midfield.

It didn't go to plan for Postecoglou, however, with the Australian sacked in December.

With his departure, you might think virtual Spurs would have learnt from their past mistakes or failures.

But in walks none other than Antonio Conte to replace him. The Italian does at least make it to the end of the campaign.

With Conte in charge, Spurs revert back to the three-man defence that they played throughout the Italian's real life time in charge.

Ryan Sessegnon and Oliver Skipp work their way into the team, along with Richarlison and Maddison - both inverted wingers.

There is also a spot for the player that appears to be Spurs' only January signing - Victor Lindelof from Manchester United.

Whatever virtual Conte did for Spurs, it did have some sort of positive effect.

The north London club finished in seventh place, qualifying for the following season's Europa Conference League.

It wasn't enough to finish ahead of Everton, however, who stormed to fifth place under Sean Dyche.

But Spurs did finish ahead of Manchester United (or Man UFC), with Erik ten Hag's side finishing a disappointing eighth. The Dutchman was sacked as soon as the season ended.

The league went to Manchester City, with Liverpool (who won the Europa League), Arsenal and Chelsea completing the top four places.

As for Kane? He scored 17 goals for Bayern Munich, along with five assists, in 25 appearances, with an average rating of 7.40.

He also broke his trophy drought, with Bayern winning the Bundesliga ahead of Borussia Dortmund.

His latest pursuit of the Champions League, however, was less successful, with the German side being knocked out in the last 16.
