Former Liverpool striker Luis Garcia believes that now is the right time for Harry Kane to leave Tottenham for a club like Bayern Munich.
There was a lot of uncertainty surrounding Kane’s future at this point 12 months ago, with the striker reportedly pushing to complete a move to Manchester City at the time (The Athletic).
However, the striker seems a lot more settled at Spurs at the moment and has admitted that he is excited by what the Lilywhites could achieve in Antonio Conte’s first full season at the club (Football.London).
Kicker reported earlier this month that the England captain was a target for Bayern Munich this summer but this was quickly shot down by SportBILD journalist Christian Falk and Fabrizio Romano (YouTube channel), who stated Tottenham will not let their talisman leave.
When asked about Kane, Bayern Munich CEO Oliver Kahn said last week that the 28-year-old is a ‘dream for the future’ (Christian Falk).
Garcia believes the Spurs striker cannot afford to wait 12 more months for a big move and that merely challenging for honours at his boyhood club will not be enough for him.
He also argued that Kane has been struggling at Spurs, despite scoring 84 goals in the past three seasons across all competitions (TransferMarkt).
When asked about Kane potentially joining Bayern, the former Spain international told ESPN: “I think it must be on the table.
“Harry Kane is mentioning last year and the year before that he might be looking for a different option, he wants to win trophies and challenge for every single competition.
“And he has been struggling. He always delivers, but I think the team lets him down, so it could be one of the options (joining Bayern). The moment Bayern has a big place up front, where a number nine could join, I think it’s a fantastic option for Harry Kane.
“Not just waiting for six months or a year, it could be the right moment to take the chance (now). I am not sure Conte is going to be ready to allow him to go now they are building a strong team.
“I don’t think it’s going to be enough for him (challenging). I think he wants to win trophies. He has been one of the best English strikers for many, many years. He wants silverware, it’s probably the moment that right now to make the move.”

I can understand Kane wanting to move to City or Liverpool but to join Bayern Munich will not be an ambitious move for the striker, considering they will continue winning the Bundesliga title for the foreseeable future with or without him.
Winning any trophy at Spurs will be much bigger for the 28-year-old’s legacy than winning multiple Bundesliga titles with Bayern. Besides, the England captain also clearly has his eyes on Alan Shearer’s goal record.
