Spurs’ talismanic striker is set to undergo a medical with the Bavarians.
And he was papped at Stansted airport before boarding a private plane to Munich.
The England captain, wearing shorts and t-shirt, was seen hopping out of a black car on the tarmac of the runway before boarding a the jet.
He was joined by wife Kate, 30, for the flight.
There were fears earlier today that the transfer could fall through.
That, according to reports, was because Spurs had a change of heart over the fee and demanded an extra £6m.
Kane was understood to be in his car on the way to the airport before Spurs denied him permission to board the flight.
The Tottenham brass’ change of heart prompted him to go to a nearby family home while he awaited the greenlight from Spurs.
Spurs chiefs eventually changed their mind and allowed their all-time leading goalscorer to board his chartered jet.
Kane will leave Tottenham 47 goals shy of making the Premier League’s all-time goalscoring record his own.
His departure has divided opinion among Premier League fans.
But fellow Spurs legend Gary Lineker reckons that now is the right time for Kane to undertake a new challenge.
“And he should do. I think he wants to go and that they will make it happen.
“The time is right for him, and the right club has come in for him.

“Munich is a lovely city and Bayern are one of the great clubs in world football.
“Alan Shearer is willing to drive Harry to the airport because he wants to keep his Premier League goalscoring record intact.
“But Harry is already the all-time record scorer for England and Tottenham.
“The game is about winning team honours rather than individual records and that is what Harry needs.
“I don’t see Spurs finishing even close to the top four next season.
“And if Harry doesn’t win trophies with Bayern then he really must be a jinx.”
Kane has been married to Kate Goodland since 2019 but have been dating since school.
They currently have three children together, Ivy, Vivienne Jane and Louis.
However, three will soon be four as the pair have announced that they are expecting a fourth child.
