KYLE last night told how he almost followed Harry Kane to Bayern Munich to escape the looming baby scandal.
The defender verbally agreed a reported £15million move to the German champions in July.
He said: “I tried to escape.
“Did I want to leave City?
“No, of course I didn’t.
“We’re the best team in the world at the minute.
“But it was a chance to get away from England and the media I was going to get.
“I was aware the clock was ticking.
“I came very close to moving.
“We were having conversations.
“I was going to a great club, a massive club.
“But in the end I couldn’t go.
“If I’m in Germany and this happens, Annie leaves and I’m now in Germany on my own.
“My kids wouldn’t be around the corner where I can see them.
“There’s pain and emotion at the moment but I can go to the house, take the kids to school, and my little lad to football.”
