Harry Kane has admitted that it was a strange experience to make a high-profile switch in the summer, having been at the same club since the start of his career.
The move was not without any hiccups, with some reports indicating that the striker had to wait at Stanstead airport for a long time after Daniel Levy decided to alter the terms of the agreement at the final moment (Mirror).
The transfer did eventually go through and Kane has said that while it was ‘a mad experience’, he insisted that he was always confident that a deal would be struck between the parties.
When asked about how the move unfolded, the 30-year-old told FourFourTwo: “It was a bit of a mad experience, to be honest.
“I didn’t really know what to expect, as I’d been at Spurs for 19 years and was really happy there. So I was stepping out of my comfort zone – it was a first for me to feel how these transfers happen, and to be a 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. Once the season finished, 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 talks started progressing. I was confident the clubs would eventually come to an agreement.
“I woke up on the Saturday morning, went straight to training, met all the players for the first time, then we had the game that night. I was at the airport just the previous afternoon. Like I said, it was mad.”
Harry Kane is thriving at Bayern Munich
The England captain has settled in well at the Allianz Arena, having made an outstanding start to his time in Germany.
The former Spurs man, who has scored 21 goals and registered seven assists in just 16 matches across all competitions so far, opened up on his experience of integrating into life at the Bavarian club and in the Bundesliga.
He added: “Those first few days felt like joining a new school. Putting faces to names, introducing yourself, everyone asking how you are. I’ve faced a lot of the lads in the past, so it was nice to get to know them all personally. It was a bit surreal, but I was itching to get going.
“It felt amazing to make my debut. The atmosphere there was something special, and I’ve since realised that wasn’t a one-off. German football has some of the most passionate fans I’ve seen.
“I remember waiting to come on, hearing the drums and looking at all the banners and flags. It gave me goosebumps. The fan culture in Germany blew me away from the start.”
