Insane developments in the transfer that just refuses to die. According to Sky Sports, Tottenham Hotspur have revoked permission for Harry Kane to board his flight to Germany. Apparently they want to renegotiate the deal, which Bayern Munich thought was already done and dusted.

This is beyond anyone's expectations. What the hell is Daniel Levy playing at?

According to Plettenberg (via Twitter), Kane is still in his car at the airport waiting for the greenlight on the transfer.

Just in case you thought it couldn't get any crazier, they hit you with this. There is absolutely no information on what Tottenham want out of this or what they expect to achieve by renegotiating the transfer at this stage. You can only hope this doesn't sink the entire deal.

Honestly, what sort of club conducts business like this? It's not just unprofessional, it's practically malicious. There are so many things that could be said about Daniel Levy and Spurs, but let's leave it for the comments section.

We'll keep you updated as this story develops.


According to Alasdair Gold, a highly reliable Spurs reporter, Tottenham are saying that Kane DOES have permission to fly to Germany.

Apparently the deal hasn’t been changed either. So what just happened?

Update #2

Apparently the flight to Munich has been rescheduled, per Bild.

The deadline to register a player for the Supercup against RB Leipzig on Saturday is 15:00, which means Kane might not be able to win the first silverware of his career tomorrow.

You have to wonder if this is what Levy wanted in the first place.

Update #3

No words. What is going on?

Update #4

There’s just no end in sight. According to Florian Plettenberg, Kane was already at the airport and Bayern Munich don’t have any answers about what’s going on. Conflicting reports everywhere.

Meanwhile you have this from AZ’s Maximillian Koch:

Update #Kane: From Oberpfaffenhofen Airport, where the new arrivals of @FCBayern usually land, when asked, it was said that no flight from London was announced today - and as of now none are planned for the rest of the day.

Well that’s not a good sign.

Update #5


So much drama about nothing, goodness.

Update #6

He’s here! According to FlightTracker24, Harry Kane has arrived at the Oberpfaffenhofen (try saying that ten times as fast) airport near Munich and will soon be on his way to the medical. Over 60k people were tracking the flight at its peak, an insane number that made it the #1 most tracked plane on the website.

Stay tuned for pictures of Kane in a red Audi soon!
