What number will Harry Kane wear at Bayern Munich?

The club-to-club talks between Tottenham Hotspur and Bayern Munich have definitely not been pleasant for either side. Spurs hoped to keep their all-time top scorer while the Bavarian giants wanted to have him as a replacement for Polish goalscorer-in-chief Robert Lewandowski who joined Barcelona last season. In the end, the two sides agreed on a shocking £100m transfer for the 30-year-old’s services.

Harry Kane will be strutting his stuff at Allianz Arena sooner than you think. We could see coach Tuchel rely on Kane in the opening Bundesliga match against Werder Bremen. Sadly, Kane will miss the DFL-Supercup game against RB Leipzig, but as long as he’s fit, we shouldn’t see him skip a single Bundesliga showdown.

Spurs’ former finisher penned a four-year deal with his new club. He’ll be defending Bayern Munich’s jersey through 2027. But what number will that jersey have? Harry Kane is an iconic Spurs 10, but will he be able to use his favorite number in Munich? Let’s find out together.

Harry Kane’s Bayern Munich Shirt Number – Most Likely Numbers

As mentioned earlier, England international Harry Kane was using number 10 with his beloved Tottenham Hotspur. However, he’s quite flexible when it comes to picking numbers, as he’s a number 9 with his national team. Will Harry Kane opt to make some changes in correspondence to his new sew surroundings or will he pick a number that fans are accustomed to seeing him wear?

Number 9

Harry Kane put his signature on a four-year deal with Bayern Munich and it seems that he’ll be wearing his favorite number 9 for the next four seasons. Top dog Kane couldn’t pick number nine in Tottenham Hotspur as it was Brazilian winger Richarlison who was already using it.

Now, there’s nothing in the way between him and number nine, as no other Bayern Munich player is attached to it. Colleague Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting is a number 13 while Mathys Tel has the 39 number reserved. It seems that Harry Kane has number 9 in the bag. Fans will surely be eager to put their hands on a number 9 Bayern Munich shirt, as the men in charge of the club rely on sales to make up for the massive investment.

Number 10

The former Spurs goalscoring maestro was bagging goal after goal at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with the number 10 on his back. However, this doesn’t seem like a viable option for him, as Leroy Sane has rights to this number. The German winger has been wearing it for a couple of seasons now and it wouldn’t be right for Harry Kane to poach it away just because he signed a club-record £100m deal with Bayern Munich.
