English star striker Harry Kane was also always available for FC Bayern during transfer negotiations in the Bahamas. This is reported by member of the supervisory board Karl-Heinz Rummenigge in the podcast “Phrasen Mäher” of the “Bild” newspaper. “I had the first contact when he was still on vacation in the Bahamas. I wrote to him that I would like to talk to him on the phone and he – as always later – answered within just two minutes, which is not the norm in the WhatsApp messenger world either,” said Rummenigge.
Rummenigge: “I told him about my own transfer to Inter”
In his first conversation with Kane, Rummenigge also mentioned how difficult it was for him to leave Bayern at the time. “I also told him about my own transfer to Inter Milan in 1984. I had everything at FC Bayern, I was practically the king with a large court, but I still wanted to gain this new experience abroad and then told him that it wasn’t an easy transfer for me either,” said the 67-year-old.
The transfer fee of 100 million euros plus bonuses is worth the English national team captain, said Rummenigge. He said during the negotiations to Bayern’s CEO Jan-Christian Dreesen: “Ten million euros to the left or right now shouldn’t prevent this transfer anymore! Because Harry Kane brings us back a very important fact in addition to his sporting quality: namely hierarchy!
