In the midst of rumors about his future with Tottenham, Harry Kane has failed to show up for pre-season training.
BREAKING: Harry Kane has not shown up for Tottenham training. He was due to return to Hotspur Way this morning following a short holiday.— Sky Sports News (@SkySportsNews) August 2, 2021
After a short break, the 28-year-old was set to return to Hotspur Way on Monday.
Kane told Spurs in May that he wants to leave this summer, with Man City, Manchester United, and Chelsea all interested, according to Sky Sports News.
Manchester City made a £100 million approach for the England captain at the end of June.
Kane is worth over £120 million, and Tottenham are keen to keep him, despite the striker's belief that he and Daniel Levy have a gentleman's agreement.
Confirmed. Harry Kane has NOT shown up for Tottenham training, as @skysportspaulg revealed. Been told it’s Harry Kane choice and not related to Covid test. ⚪️ #THFC— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) August 2, 2021
Kane is assuming that he has had a ‘gentlemen agreement’ with the club since one year to leave Spurs this summer.
In June, Levy, who has appointed Juventus' former football officer Fabio Paratici as the club's new managing director of football, said he sympathizes with Kane's frustrations about the club's lack of silverware, but warned that a deal could be tough to complete.
Meanwhile, after last season's Champions League final, Man City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak stated that the team will be "competitive and aggressive" this summer, hoping to strengthen by introducing "class to the squad in a handful of crucial areas."
