The summer transfer window can be termed a success for Bayern Munich as they managed to get the deal over the line for their top target- Harry Kane. The Bavarian club worked hard on the deal to sign Kane from Tottenham Hotspur before the start of the Bundesliga campaign. Kane became the most expensive player for Die Roten as they paid close to €100 million for the forward.
The England international made his debut for Bayern in the DFL Supercup final against RB Leipzig. Kane couldn’t get on the scoresheet against Leipzig, but he has hit the ground running for Bayern in the Bundesliga.
The 30-year-old striker scored his first goal for Bayern against Werder Bremen on matchday one. He grabbed a brace against Augsburg in the second gameweek. Kane also managed to provide an assist for Leroy Sane against Werder Bremen. The English striker will continue to get better once he gets accustomed to his players.
Along with making an instant impact on the pitch, Kane is also making a positive impact in the dressing room. Thomas Tuchel and other Bayern players have been praising him ever since his debut against RB Leipzig. According to Bild (via iMiaSanMia), Bayern are thinking about adding Kane to the leadership group in the squad.
Thomas Muller, Joshua Kimmich, Leon Goretzka, Kingsley Coman, and Manuel Neuer are part of the leadership group at Bayern. Kane will definitely add value to this group since he has been a leader for Tottenham Hotspur and England. However, it does feel very early to take this step.
Kane has looked unfazed by the pressure since arriving at Bayern. Considering his record over the last few seasons, it is not outrageous to say that Kane will easily score 40 goals for Die Roten this season. He will have a big role to play in the Champions League, as Bayern lacked a focal point in the attack last season. The English forward thrives under pressure, so adding him to the leadership group is unlikely to have a negative impact on his performances.

In terms of squad news, Bayern has received a big boost this week. Manuel Neuer completed his first training with goalkeepers on Monday. The German international is likely to make his much-awaited return to action after the international break. Neuer was on the sidelines for the last seven months due to a leg injury. Jamal Musiala has also started training individually after missing the game against Augsburg due to a minor injury.
