Tottenham striker Harry Kane touches down in Germany ahead of transfer to Bayern Munich

Harry Kane has landed in Germany at Oberpfaffenhofen airport as he edges closer to joining Bayern Munich.

The Tottenham star arrived shortly after 6pm UK time due to his flight from London Stansted being delayed, with almost 70,000 fans watching his flight tracker.

The 30-year-old will now travel to Munich where he’s expected to undergo a medical ahead of his blockbuster move to the Bundesliga champions.

Tottenham struck an initial £84.5million deal with the German giants on Thursday, with the deal rising to over £100m in potential add-ons.

Spurs had given Kane the final decision on whether he wanted to depart north London in search of a new challenge.

And after agreeing to the move and preparing to fly over for the medical, chairman Daniel Levy attempted to change the terms of the transfer, putting the whole deal in jeopardy.

However, the transfer was eventually given the green light, with Tottenham allowing their talisman to fly to Germany in order to complete the deal.

With all parties expecting the deal to be finalised, it means that Spurs are preparing for a hefty blow in the build-up to the new season.

Ange Postecoglou’s side take on Brentford in their Premier League opener on Sunday, a clash that they now look likely to face without their record goalscorer.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference on Friday about Kane, Postecoglou said: “[Harry and I] had a chat on the first day.

“He was up front and honest that if they could agree a deal then he would go.

“He wanted it decided by the first game and that was my preference as well.

“I didn’t see the point in [pitching myself] because whatever I was going to say was going to be irrelevant. I could plan this grand vision,but I’m sure he’d heard it all before.

“My feeling was we’ll get to know each other, that’s the best way to navigate this early bit.

“Having said that, in my mind after that initial conversation [on the first day], he’d made up his mind that if the clubs agreed he’d go, but he was also happy to stay if they didn’t.”

And Kane could win the first piece of silverware in his career when Bayern face RB Leipzig in the German Super Cup on Saturday night.

He has to be registered by 3pm tomorrow in order to be available.
