Tottenham have now claimed that Harry Kane does have permission to fly to Germany despite reports that they ‘revoked’ their consent.
Reports overnight claimed that Kane has been given permission to travel to Germany to complete a medical with Bayern Munich.
It comes following the news earlier on Thursday that Bayern had reportedly reached an agreement with Tottenham over a £95million deal to sign the England striker.
Reports insisted that the two clubs had settled in principle on terms for the England captain to move to Bayern after a series of bids earlier in the summer were rejected, according to reports citing sources in Germany.
But multiple reports now indicate that Kane has been told by Tottenham he can no longer fly to Germany to complete a move with the England international waiting to hear the latest news.
Sky Sports News reporter Kaveh Solhekol insisted this morning that Kane is now at “a family home near” Stansted airport after having to turn back.
Solhekol wrote on Twitter: “Harry Kane was being driven to Stansted airport this morning when he was told to not fly to Munich. Turned back. Currently at a family home near the airport waiting for permission to fly. Tottenham trying to change deal at last minute.”
Sky Germany reporter Florian Plettenberg, who has been breaking a lot of news on Kane, has a similar story to tell.
Plettenberg tweeted: “@HKane is now on his way to the airport in London, as he already had the light for his flight to Munich. FC Bayern is waiting for him. #Kane But now Tottenham currently hindering the move and have revoked Kane’s permission to fly Kane is waiting right now every second in the car for permission to fly to Munich for a medical check.”
And Independent journalist Miguel Delaney has now confirmed that a deal has not been agreed completely with Daniel Levy still demanding £110m from Bayern.
Delaney said on Twitter: “Kane deal is not 100% agreed as negotiations over the exact figures are ongoing. Levy wants over £110m all-in.”
However, BBC Sport journalist Simon Stone insists that Tottenham are denying they have revoked permission for him to travel to Germany.
Stone said: “Is being underlined that Harry Kane has been given permission by Tottenham to fly to Germany.”
Tottenham correspondent for Football.London Alasdair Gold added weight to those claims, he wrote on Twitter: “Spurs claiming Harry Kane does have permission to fly to Germany.”
Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher thinks the major plus for Kane going to Bayern is that he can compete in the Champions League next season.
“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!”
