Harry Kane admits leaving Tottenham for Bayern Munich in the final days of the summer market were “crazy”.
Kane, 30, left with less than a year to run on his Spurs contract.
He told Four Four Two: “It was a bit of a crazy experience if I’m honest. I didn’t really know what to expect because I had been at Spurs for 19 years and was really happy there. So I went out of my comfort zone – it was the first time for me to feel how these transfers happen and to be part of one.
“Last season all I focused on was Tottenham and trying to help the club finish as high as possible in the table. When the season ended I spoke to Spurs and explained that I felt it was time to move on and push myself as far as possible. I then went away on holiday and that’s when the conversations started to pick up. I was convinced that the clubs would eventually come to an agreement.”
On his arrival at Bayern, Kane continued: “I woke up on Saturday morning, went straight to training, met all the players for the first time, then we had a match that evening. I was at the airport just the previous afternoon. Like I said, it was crazy.
“The first days felt like starting at a new school. Connecting faces to names, introducing yourself, everyone asking how you are. I’ve met a lot of the guys before, so it was nice to get to know them all in person. It was a little surreal, but I was dying to get started.”
