If the transfer of Harry Kane (Tottenham) becomes possible, Bayern Munich will have secured the summer transfer window which makes them a big favorite to win the Champions League last.
“Sometimes when we played with Lewandowski it was a little easier for us to defend. Now we will be more flexible in attack. Our fans don’t have to worry.” This farewell of Julian Nagelsmann is of July 2021. The Polish striker had left Bayern Munich to defend the colors of FC Barcelona. Three months later, Eric Maxime Choupo-Moting was relegated to the forefront of an insufficiently reliable attack and a nominal disaster without a real number 9. His absence at the end of the season left Thomas Tuchel facing the same problems. But with Harry Kane following an offer in excess of €100million finally accepted by Tottenham, we should probably expect a stunning resurgence of performances from the Rekordmeister.
Firstly, because the 30-year-old English striker doesn’t have many counterparts at the highest European level. Without relying on monstrous teams behind him, Harry Kane has an impressive record in the Premier League. His stats in the last nine seasons: 21 goals, 25, 29, 30, 17, 18, 23, 17 and finally 30 in 2022-2023. Since his debut in 2014, only three players have done better than him in the top 5 of the European Championships: Robert Lewandowski (264), Lionel Messi (256), Cristiano Ronaldo (237).

harry kane is also 50 years old Help 317 in games. Which reminds us that the 88 meter man knows how to dazzle his teammates. At Tottenham, where Richardson is coming off a difficult season (1 league goal) and Dejan Kulusevski still hasn’t confirmed his declared potential, he only had Heung-min Son as a serious attacking partner. At Bayern, Thomas Tuchel will be able to introduce him alongside Kingsley Coman, Jamal Musiala, Leroy Sane, Serge Gnabry, Thomas Muller and possibly promising French striker Mathias Tell.
But in addition to strengthening their offensive zone, Bayern Munich already have a notable transfer on paper with the signings of Rafael Guerrero, Konrad Leimer and notably the best defender in Serie A and Italian champion Kim Min-jae from Naples. is window. The South Korean provides an additional hinge option to Thomas Tuchel, who can already rely on Dayot Upamecano, Matthijs de Ligt and Benjamin Pavard. It is also said that Ivorian midfielder Ibrahim Sangaré (25, PSV Eindhoven) could also come in to bring more density to the midfield that Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka already enjoy.
With such a workforce, Bayern Munich, who didn’t much cheer last season despite Sadio Mane, is back with a bang in the short list of favorites for the Champions League crown.
