Harry Kane completed his £100 million move from Tottenham to Bayern Munich on Saturday.
He could make his debut for the Bundesliga champions later on Saturday.
“I’m very happy to be a part of Bayern, one of the world’s biggest clubs, and I’ve always said that I want to move and prove myself at the highest level in my career,” Kane said.
Kane has signed a four-year contract with Bayern and might make his debut against RB Leipzig in the German Super Cup, but he must be registered by 2pm UK time to play at the Allianz Arena.
Kane said in a farewell message to Tottenham that it was the perfect moment for him to leave the club, but that it might not be forever.
He said: “I’m sad to be leaving the club I’ve spent nearly 20 years of my life at, from an 11-year-old boy to a 30-year-old man. There have been so many great moments and special memories that I will cherish forever.
“And mostly thank you to you the Tottenham fans. From the moment I’ve been playing I’ve been one of your own and I’ve given everything I possibly could to make you proud and give you as many special moments and memories that will hopefully last forever.
“I felt this was the time to leave. I didn’t want to go into the season with a lot of unresolved future talk. I think it’s important for the new manager and the players to concentrate on trying to get Tottenham to around the top of the table and fighting for trophies.
“I wish Ange and the boys all the very best of luck. Obviously I will be watching from a fan’s point of view now and I really hope the team can be successful.
“This is a message to all you fans around the world, every single Tottenham fan has supported and been with me throughout my journey. Me and my family will cherish it forever. We’ll never forget all the moments we’ve had together so thank you. I’ll be watching the season.
“Good luck to Tottenham and the whole club. It’s not a goodbye because you never know how things pan out in the future. Thank you and see you soon.”
