Signed from Tottenham Hotspur for a fee in excess of 100-million-euros ($109.6 million), Kane could win the first major silverware of his career on his first day as a Bayern player.

Kane, who will wear the number nine shirt vacated by Robert Lewandowski, indicated on social media earlier on Saturday that he was "feeling good" and "looking forward to the game" after taking part in his first training session as a new Bayern player.

The Bavarians are looking to claim their 11th Supercup with victory over Leipzig, a repeat of last season's curtain-raiser of the German domestic season, which ended 5-3 to Bayern.
