Harry Kane will have no choice but to adhere to the strict car-related rule at Bayern Munich despite being their most expensive signing.
Recall we reported that the English striker completed a move to Bayern Munich for £100 million on Saturday morning, with Kane signing a four-year deal and taking on the No.9 shirt.
The former Tottenham striker played his debut in the DFL Supercup on Saturday but Bayern lost to RB Leipzig in a 3-0 defeat.
After completing his move, Kane told Bayern’s official website, that: “I’m very happy to be a part of FC Bayern now.”
“Bayern is one of the biggest clubs in the world, and I’ve always said that I want to compete and prove myself at the highest level during my career.”
“This club is defined by its winning mentality – it feels very good to be here.”
Harry Kane left Tottenham as their record goalscorer and has to adapt to a new culture after spending his entire career in North London.
Bayern have an extensive long-term partnership with German car manufacturers Audi as shareholders and they own about 8.33% of the club.
Bayern players and staff get a company car from Audi in a tradition that’s been going on since 2002, this is a part of the deal.
Harry Kane will have to adapt to their rules that states that every player is expected to drive to and from the Sabener Strasse training base in their Audi vehicles, as well as matches and other club-related activities.
Bentleys, Bugattis and Porches are acceptable as they are part of the Volkswagen group but Niklas Sule, Jerome Boateng, Philippe Coutinho and even their current player Kingsley Coman have faulted the rule before.
BILD reported Coman was facing a £43,500 fine after coming to training in his Mercedes and was denied entry to the training ground.
This is the new culture Harry Kane has to put up with unlike in London where he can drive whatever car he wants to training.
