Harry Kane Bayern Munich plane issue and Daniel Levy role in Tottenham transfer delay revealed

Harry Kane made a £100million move from Spurs to Bayern Munich this summer but there were problems with the deal right up until the end when it was finally signed off

he Harry Kane to Bayern Munich transfer was one of the sagas of the summer transfer window. The deal was on, then off, then on again and then off again before it finally went through for £100million rising to £120million.

The England captain, who last season became Spurs’ all-time leading goalscorer, had just one year remaining on his contract with Tottenham, so chairman Daniel Levy negotiated the finest deal available.

Bayern Munich argued about pricing, but Levy insisted on his £100 million asking price and ultimately closed the transaction. However, problems persisted right up until the very end. According to sources, a jet that was supposed to transport Kane to Germany was grounded because of unforeseen problems with a previously agreed-upon arrangement.

Kane eventually flew out to the German champions and signed a four-year contract in Munich, despite Spurs’ insistence that they prevented him from traveling.

Bayern director Uli Hoeness has explained what happened on that day and the role that Levy played in it. And he revealed that Kane might never have made the switch

At midnight, we had a verbal agreement, but at 2:50 in the morning, the accord was once more called into question. They requested more money once more. Then Jan [Dreesen] exclaimed, “Not another penny!”

Levy’s acceptance of our intransigence took six hours, and the jet that had been waiting for Harry at Stansted that morning took off only after that.

“That morning, Harry stated, ‘If we don’t find a solution by the evening, I’ll play for Tottenham on Sunday. I won’t sign a new deal with Tottenham after that, and I’ll go on a free transfer the next year.
