Alan Shearer calls Harry Kane ‘the best’ and tells him ‘he deserves success’… with the striker set to miss out on surpassing the Newcastle icon’s Premier League scoring record
- Harry Kane has completed a £100m move from Tottenham to Bayern Munich
- He leaves the Premier League 47 goals off Alan Shearer’s scoring record
- Shearer has sent a message to Kane following the announcement of his move
Alan Shearer has hailed Harry Kane as ‘the best’ after the England captain secured a £100m switch from Tottenham to Bayern Munich.
The news was officially confirmed on Saturday after a dramatic Friday, in which Kane eventually flew out to Munich to have his medical and wrap up the deal.
One man who must be pleased over his move is Shearer who will likely keep hold of his Premier League scoring record, with Kane leaving the division 47 behind Alan Shearer’s total of 260.
After completing the move, Kane tweeted: ‘Been an incredible welcome for me and my family in Munich in the last 24 hours! Buzzing to have signed for such a massive club with an incredible history, can’t wait to get started!
In response, Shearer put his jokes over the scoring record aside as he commented: ‘You’re the best Harry. Good luck. You deserve success.’

It comes a day after Shearer took to social media, jokingly telling the 30-year-old to leave Tottenham.
The 52-year-old shared a photo of himself mocked up as an airline pilot, accompanying the photo with the caption: ‘Come on Harry it’s time to go!’
It has been fiercely debated whether Kane should leave the Premier League to win trophies with Bayern Munich, or stay at Tottenham to break the goalscoring record set by the BBC pundit.
Jamie Carragher and Rio Ferdinand expressed their contrasting opinions on the individual accolades versus silverware debate on social media on Thursday.
‘Alan Shearer’s PL goal record gets talked about a lot more than his PL winners medal. That record will be huge for HK,’ Carragher wrote on Twitter.
‘The big plus for going to Bayern is to guarantee he plays CL football & a chance to win that trophy every season. It’s not about their domestic trophies, they’ll win them anyway & I’m sure he’d rather have the PL record than the Bundesliga!’
Moments later, Ferdinand waded into the debate and struck a differing tone.
‘You don’t start ya [sic] career saying you want to be the golden boot winner – you want to win things for ya team,’ he said.

Kane’s move to Bayern Munich shows his desire to win trophies, after failing to pick up any at his time with Tottenham.
In his first interview with the club, Kane highlighted Bayern Munich’s ‘winning culture’ as a strong factor behind his move.
