Report: All the details as Harry Kane was barred from Hotspur Way before Bayern move

The Telegraph have claimed that Harry Kane had been barred from entering Tottenham’s training ground in the hours preceding his big-money switch to Bayern Munich.

The report asserts that Spurs had informed Kane that it would not be appropriate for him to return to Hotspur Way ahead of formalising his move to the Bavarian club.

It is explained that while the North London side were finalising the transfer with Bayern, the striker communicated a desire to return to training in preparation for the club’s first game of the season against Brentford.

However, it is alleged that the 30-year-old was verbally informed not to do so before the same message was reiterated in writing via email.

The Telegraph add that this meant that Kane did not get the chance to say any face-to-face goodbyes to his teammates, instead having to call and send messages to the players and coaches.

Harry Kane was given the Pochettino treatment

The report adds that Tottenham’s record goalscorer thus could not pick up any of his personal possessions himself and instead had to wait for them to be sent to him and his family, who were also denied access to their suite in the club’s stadium.

The publication reveals that Kane’s representatives have chosen not to comment on Spurs asking the striker to stay away from the training ground.

I think Spurs fans should not take reports like these at face value as there can be two sides to a story. Postecoglou might not have wanted Kane to train with the squad ahead of the Brentford game if a transfer was imminently going to go ahead.

However, if it is true that Kane was not allowed to return to Hotspur Way to say goodbye to his teammates (which I highly doubt is the case) that is an absolute disgrace and the club’s hierarchy have a lot to answer for.
