Charlie Kane, who is both the brother and agent of England’s captain Harry Kane, belongs to a group of people representing players. They aren’t part of FIFA’s official list of recognized agents. This situation isn’t unique to Harry, as many other English national team players also have agents who aren’t in line with FIFA’s new agent rules.
FIFA’s new agent test is relatively straightforward. It’s a one-hour exam with 20 multiple-choice questions. You can use a study guide, a 528-page document, during the test. If an agent is what they call a ‘legacy agent,’ which means they got their FIFA agent license in 1991, 1995, 2001, or 2008, they might not have to take the exam at all. However, Charlie Kane only became Harry Kane’s full-time agent in 2018, so Harry might need to consider leaving his brother’s agency. It’s important to note that this agency solely represents Harry Kane.
Rafaela Pimenta, agent of Erling Haaland and De Ligt, in an interview, via The Athletic, spoke against these new regulations, “They[FIFA] took over the market and have monopolized football. The regulations are an example of totalitarianism,” expressing her discontent. FIFA’s new agent regulation is currently being legally challenged by some of the biggest Sports agencies putting regulations on hold.
As a result, until the 30th of November when a verdict is given, Charlie Kane is permitted to work as his brother’s agent without repercussions even though he is not recognized officially by FIFA.
Similar to Harry Kane, players such as Jude Bellingham and Declan Rice are also managed by their family members, both by their respective fathers.
Harry Kane’s bright start at Bayern Munich
The departure of Robert Lewandowski in 2022 left Bayern Munich without a natural finisher of the ball, causing them issues in the front half of the pitch. It took £100 million to fix this issue in the form of a soon-to-be out-of-contract, 30-year-old England International, Harry Kane. The player managed an incredible 30 goals in the Premier League last season, second only to Erling Haaland.
The England International failed to make his mark on his Bayern debut as the team lost 3-0 to RB Leipzig but has quickly made up for that disappointing performance. Scoring 8 goals in 7 Bundesliga appearances, Kane has taken Germany by storm with his clinical finishing and hold-up play, which Premier League fans are all too familiar with.
While Bayern Munich chases their 12th consecutive Bundesliga title, Harry Kane is still searching for his maiden trophy as a professional football player. With Kane’s performances and Bayern’s consistency in the league, both goals are currently on track.
