England captain Harry Kane must choose whether to stay at Tottenham, the English team where he has been since 2004, or move to German giant Bayern Munich.

The clubs reportedly have reached an agreement regarding the transfer of Kane – for a deal worth more than 100 million euros ($110 million) – and now it is up to the striker to decide.

Kane, who is the second in Premier League history with 213 goals, is entering the last year of his contract at Spurs and can leave as a free agent in 2024. It puts pressure on Tottenham to sell him this summer if the club is to get anything for its star player.

Kane reached the Champions League final with Tottenham in 2019. However, he has never lifted a major trophy, and the team’s progress has stalled. An eighth-place finish in the Premier League last season meant Tottenham failed to qualify for European competition.
