Harry Kane Explains Why He Left Tottenham

Key Detail In England Star's Bayern Munich Contract Also Revealed.

Harry Kane has revealed his decision to leave Tottenham and join Bayern Munich wasn't a knee-jerk reaction, but instead a move he had considered previously during his career.

The England captain left Spurs during the summer transfer window after Bayern's £100m bid was accepted and the striker moved overseas for the first time in his career.

The 30-year-old decided to call time on a career at Tottenham by leaving his boyhood club, but explained moving abroad has always been something he wanted to do.

"It was always something I wanted to do. I was at Spurs for 19-years but always in back of mind wanted to experience a new league, a new culture and team. Things in football come together at the right time and Bayern were there and I was excited by the challenge I face going there," Kane told Channel 4.

"I've really enjoyed it, playing in a new stadium, new fanbase, and I'm happy with how I've started."

The most frequent offered explanation for Kane's Premier League departure is that he left to win trophies after failing to win any silverware in his career to date.

Spurs previously failed at chances to challenge for the Premier League, FA Cup, Carabao Cup and Champions League during Kane's time at the club.

During the same period Bayern have become serial Bundesliga, Champions League and German Cup winners and are expected to add more silverware this season. Should they do so then Kane will end his trophy-drought, something that he admitted is a key aim with both Bayern and England.

"The Bundesliga and Champions League are what we are setting out to win and the Euros with England we are setting out to win."

There's also a new piece of information about Kane's contract that has come to light regarding his summer move.

As part of the Kane deal, the German giants agreed to two friendlies against Spurs with the entire proceeds going to the Premier League club.

That's according to German reporter Maximilian Koch, who claims this was agreed by Bayern in order to keep the guaranteed transfer fee below €100 million.

How and when the games will take place is still unclear.

It will be a chance for Kane to play against his former team, where he has spent the majority of his career.
