GLOATING Germans have put the boot in on Spurs fans as they celebrate Harry Kane’s likely transfer to Bayern Munich.

The Bundesliga champions are understood to have netted the England skipper after chasing a deal all summer.

Kane, 30, is due to fly to Germany today to undergo a medical ahead of a £104million move accepted by Tottenham this week, reports say.

But as Spurs fans who have watched the striker score more than 250 goals during his 12-year stint are left reeling, the smug German press has been having a field day crowing about the transfer.

With Kane’s face splashed across the top spots of German news sites, many are celebrating poaching the “excellent” goal machine – insisting he could propel Bayern to glory on the world stage.

One German outlet even attacked Spurs’ negotiations as “childish” while others brazenly moaned Kane might get “cold feet”.

In a comment piece by Sports Illustrated, the outlet boasted that Bayern manager Thomas Tuchel and Kane are “a dream duo” and snidely remarked that he could help the club win the Champions League.

It adds: “They [Bayern] are now digging deep into their own pockets and probably signing an absolute world star – which could transform them into the upcoming Champions League winners.

“If Harry Kane’s transfer works out, FC Bayern will finally be a world club like Real Madrid or Manchester City again! 

“The Englishman has the ability to shoot Bayern alone into the CL final with 40 goals or more this season.”

Meanwhile, another outlet Ran hailed Kane as the “perfect solution in the storm”.

The piece reads: “He fits perfectly into FC Bayern’s profile: He is a leader, hungry for the title, physically robust, two-footed, strong in the air and has an excellent nose for goals in and outside the penalty area.

“The Englishman would be the perfect solution for the record champions.”

And German football expert Carsten Germann, who has written for papers including BILD, twisted the knife by saying the move could finally see him lift a trophy.

He told The Sun: “I think that Harry Kane will benefit the Bundesliga.”

“And especially for Bayern Munich, it will really raise the quality of their team.

“Harry Kane could be the missing link for their style of play, as they had no central strike last season.

“It is a really big occasion for Kane as well – for him to win the first title in his career.

“He will be granted an absolute super-star status here in Germany but also the pressure on him and Bayern will be extremely high.”

Sportschau also crowed about how it could be Kane’s chance to bag a title.

It says: “Kane finally wants to win big titles. 

“So far he hasn’t managed to do that with England’s national team and with Tottenham Hotspur.”

German tabloid newspaper BILD bragged how Bayern looks set to snare “a world-class player at the peak of his career”.

It adds: “Here comes England’s captain, who has scored 213 goals in 320 games for a club from the second tier of the Premier League.

“100 million euros is a hell of a lot of money. But FC Bayern invested it damn well.”

And a piece on Sports1 gloats about how Kane is set to leave Spurs before his contract finishes.

It adds: “If everything goes according to plan, Kane would become the most expensive purchase in Bundesliga history less than a year before his contract expires in London – and the most expensive sale in Spurs’ club history.”

But despite much of the German media blustering about the transfer, some outlets have slammed how long it has taken to thrash out.

Spurs agreed to receive an initial fee of £86m plus easily-attainable add-ons to round it up to £104m for Kane this week.

It was then up to Kane to decide his future with only one year remaining on his contract – and up until Thursday afternoon, the forward was believed to be keen on staying in North London.

But late on Thursday night, the England captain is reported to have opted to move to Germany and agreed personal terms, according to The Athletic‘s David Ornstein.

Kane is understood to have penned a four-year deal worth £415,000 a week – more than double his Tottenham earnings.

But in a fresh twist in the saga, Spurs have revoked Kane’s permission to fly to Germany, despite the England captain being given the green light to undergo a Bayern medical late last night.

However, according to Sky Sports Germany, Tottenham have how hindered the move completely by revoking that permission.

Passauer Neue Presse branded the lengthy negotiations as “child’s play”, adding: “If the proud Munich team were in a position of strength, they should have slammed the door in Kane’s face.”

German media

Neuer Ruhr Zeitung echoed the frustrations, branding the dad-of-three a “tasteless aftertaste”.

It adds: “This must annoy the German champions from Munich. Those responsible are willing to dig deep into their pockets for an attacker who, mind you, only has one year left on his contract.

“There is talk of a transfer fee of over 100 million euros, but no German club has broken the three-digit million barrier so far.

“If that’s not enough, Munich would be embarrassed and the Bundesliga with it.”

Should he leave, Kane will do so as Spurs’ record goalscorer after 19 years at the club, joining aged 11.

He scored 280 goals in 435 games for Spurs – 213 came in the Premier League.

That means he leaves England 47 goals shy of Alan Shearer’s Premier League goalscoring record of 260.

It is expected Kane will be unveiled in a press conference at some point next week before Bayern‘s opening Bundesliga game against Werder Bremen on Friday night.

It has left Spurs fans heartbroken – especially as the footballer appears to have been removed from images on the club’s website.

One posted: “Absolutely gutted, this hurts. He gave us so many great moments but we never backed his ambition if we’re being truthful. Our greatest ever player.”

Another said: “This actually hurts bro.”
