HARRY KANE’S move to Bayern Munich has been delayed in another fresh twist to the transfer saga.
The 30-year-old forward has finally been given permission to fly to Germany for his medical following a last minute hold-up.Harry Kane’s move to Bayern Munich has hit a fresh snag[/caption] His flight to Germany for his medical has been cancelled[/caption]
The England captain, who Tottenham have accepted a £104million transfer bid from Bayern, was due to fly out to Oberpfaffenhofen airport near Munich this morning via private jet.
However, Tottenham rescinded permission for him to travel while he was on his way to Stansted airport.
That stance has now changed after Kane spent some time at a nearby family home while waiting for permission to leave.
But now another minor hitch has occurred after the flight that fans appear convinced he was due to be on appears to have been cancelled.
One footy fan first shared a screengrab of live flight information on social media along with:
“For anyone wondering Harry Kane’s flight from Stansted has been delayed until at least 12.15pm. Flight number is #C56X around 25kms outside Munich.”
Then a further update was shared that read “now the flight is completely cancelled” along with a screenshot seemingly showing that was the case.
Despite this setback, Bayern still believe that the transfer will be officially confirmed within 24 hours.
That was after rejecting a huge £400,000-a-week contract offer from Tottenham earlier this summer.
And he is now set to leave as the club’s record goalscorer, with 280 goals in 435 senior appearances.
Meanwhile, Alan Shearer left Match of the Day pals Gary Lineker and Ian Wright in stitches with “one of the greatest football tweets ever” about Kane.
The Newcastle and England legend, 52, is the all-time Premier League top scorer with 260.
But Kane was hot on his heels and closing in fast after reaching 213 with Tottenham – but Shearer is ecstatic that his record looks set to stay intact.
He tweeted a photo of a mocked up image of himself standing next to a private jet in a pilot’s outfit and captioned it with: “Come on Harry it’s time to go!”
One fan claimed: “This right here might be one of the greatest football tweets ever.”
