Harry Kane sends Alan Shearer warning over Premier League goal record as he says 'I've got plenty of football left' | The Sun
HARRY KANE sent an ominous message to Alan Shearer and insisted that he still has “plenty of football left” to snatch his Premier League goal record.
The 30-year-old striker completed his £104million transfer move to Bayern Munich from Tottenham on Saturday.
Newcastle and England legend Shearer, 52, is the all-time Premier League top scorer with 260.
Kane was hot on his heels and closing in fast after reaching 213 with Spurs.
But following his move to Bayern, many feel that he may never get the chance to close that 47-goal gap and surpass Shearer’s tally.
Kane, who made his debut in Bayern’s 3-0 defeat to RB Leipzig last night in the DFB Supercup, was officially unveiled by his new club this morning.

And he addressed a number of topics while speaking to the media, including the Premier League goal record.
He said: “Of course it's always going to be a tough decision [to leave Spurs]. I was at Tottenham for 19 years of my life, so everyone knows that the club is connected with me and with my heart.
“But ultimately, as I said earlier, I'm a professional and I've always pushed myself to my limits, and I just felt like the time was right.
"I needed to be playing at the highest level, I needed to be playing Champions League, trying to win titles every year.

“So when I thought about it, and obviously Bayern got in touch, it was, it was a decision I wanted to make.
“Of course people will talk about the record and talk about Shearer, but look, I've got plenty of football left in my career.
"For now it's to try and concentrate on trying to achieve things here, trying to push myself, trying to push the team and trying to reach new levels with this club, and that's what my focus is on right now.”
Shearer's tally 260 goals came in 441 appearances in the top-flight.
Kane has so far managed 213 in 320 matches.
Despite admitting it may take him some time to adapt, the star is now targeting landing the first piece of silverware in his career this season – although he insists that it will not be as easy as everybody thinks.
Kane added: “I spent my whole career in England and the Premier League so it may take a bit of adapting to get used to a new league.
“I'm playing against different teams. As you saw yesterday with Leipzig, there are some great teams in this league and it is going to be a real challenge.

“I know people expect Bayern to win the league every year, but I think teams are improving and it is getting tougher.
"For me it is about settling in, getting as comfortable as possible and understanding the different teams and how I need to adapt.”
