Harry Kane, 30, is putting his faith in the abilities of the reunited Eric Dier, 29, of Bayern Munich.
The Bavarians announced on their official website on Wednesday (June 12), “We have signed Dier until June 30, 2024. An option for a one-year extension is also included. The England international defender will wear the number 15 shirt,” the club announced.
Tottenham, now Dyer’s former club, also announced, “We have agreed with Munich to loan Dyer for the remainder of the season. “He has been an important figure on and off the pitch for over nine years at the club. He is now leaving for the Bundesliga.”
Dier, 29, joined Spurs in 2014 and went on to make 364 appearances for the club, scoring 13 goals and providing 12 assists. However, he was widely criticized for his poor defense.
He was labeled as an “automatic door” at Tottenham, and many wondered where he could go from here. The criticism of Dyer reached its peak at the end of last year, and there were many voices calling for him to be sold in the winter transfer window.
However, Dyer will continue his career at ‘Kim Min-jae’s team’ Munich.
Dyer’s “shock” move to Munich began in November of last year, when Football Insider reported that the Bavarians were looking to sign Dyer, who can play both center back and defensive midfield. Dyer has played in the midfield in his early professional career.
“Munich could sign Dyer for a relatively cheap transfer fee. That’s one of the reasons why he’s on their list.” “Tottenham will receive a fee of €4 million ($5.7 billion),” said Fabrizio Romano, a journalist familiar with the transfer market.
“Dier is a center-back specialist,” Thomas Tuchel told the media shortly before the deal was officially announced, “and we see him as a center-back.”
“He can play on the right or left, but also at the back. 온라인카지노 He also played as a defensive midfielder a few years ago.”
There’s a connection between Dyer and Munich. Harry Kane (31, Munich), who was a regular at Tottenham until last season. “(Daily) agent Kane lured Dyer to Germany,” according to British outlet TeamTalk.
Dyer is close friends with Kane, a former Tottenham Youth player.
They are also England teammates. Kane moved to Munich just before this season, but the pair have kept in touch.
Dyer, who was once paired with Son Heung-min of the Korea National Football Team, is now paired with Kim Min-jae.
He has a good relationship with Son Heung-min, who joined the team in 2015. When Dyer was relegated to the backup role and felt like a “loner,” Son Heung-min was always there for him.
During their time together at Tottenham, Son has been on a steady upward trajectory. Dyer, on the other hand, has been on a downward spiral. There were many times when Dyer would play poor defense and Son would score a goal to give the team the win. For Dyer, Son Heung-min is a great support.
Now, Dyer is starting over in Munich as the backup to Kim Min-jae.
After the 3-0 win over Hoffenheim on Nov. 13, Kane said, “I’ve known Dyer for a long time. I know what a great player he can be for us. I’m happy to see him again. He will be a great addition to the squad.”
“I hope Dyer can settle in straight away,” he added, “I’m sure he’ll be committed to Munich straight away.”
“Munich is now our home,” said Dyer. I want to create special memories not only for myself but also for my wife, and I’m going to play golf and learn German with Kane,” Dyer said enthusiastically.
