Alan Shearer, the Premier League’s second all-time leading scorer behind Alan Shearer, has expressed his immense satisfaction with Harry Kane’s decision to depart Tottenham for Bayern Munich. The transfer saga involving the England captain during the recent summer transfer window finally culminated in his move to the Bundesliga champions in August.
Kane has made an impressive start with his new club, amassing nine goals and five assists in his first ten appearances. At the age of 30, he now occupies the second position in the Premier League’s all-time scorers list, having overtaken Wayne Rooney last season.
Shearer, a Newcastle legend, had not concealed his preference for Kane to pursue a career abroad, aiming to preserve his own scoring record. He humorously suggested he would drive his fellow number nine to the airport. This viewpoint was recently questioned by Micah Richards on the Match of the Day podcast, with Shearer’s colleague BBC pundit seeking his genuine sentiments regarding Kane’s choice.
In response, Shearer used colorful language that left his fellow pundits in fits of laughter, while Gary Lineker emphasized that the Magpies’ favorite had never concealed his stance on the transfer. Recent speculation has hinted at the possibility of Kane returning to the Premier League, with the new Bayern signing trailing by just 47 goals in the Premier League’s record books.
Shearer further mentioned, “We have a WhatsApp group, and there was a recent headline suggesting that Spurs might have a buyback clause. Micah sent me a message with my name and laughing emojis!
