Harry Kane’s future at Tottenham has been shrouded in mystery this summer as the England captain has been continuously linked with a move to reigning Premier League champions Manchester City.
Kane added fuel to the fire this week by failing to report to pre-season training, instead opting to continue his holiday in the Bahamas, a decision that has infuriated the majority of the Spurs’ faithful.
The 28-year-old still has three years remaining on his current deal with the club, meaning that City would likely have to fork out in excess of £150million in order to land the prolific frontman, an unlikely event given they are set to splash £100million on Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish.
Still, links with a move to the Etihad won’t go away and Tottenham’s new boss Nuno Espirito Santo has admitted he is yet to speak to Kane regarding the Englishman’s absence.
“I expect to speak with Harry [Kane] soon. I haven’t had the chance yet. We have to, first of all, solve the problems ourselves, then I will speak to you,” Nuno told the press following his side’s 2-2 pre-season draw against Chelsea.
“It’s not that I don’t want to comment, what I believe is all this issue in relation to everything should be discussed internally, among us. Let’s try to avoid any kind of public argument or discussion about it. We have to focus on what is important, solve the situation, between us.
“We will solve the situation internally, with the club speaking and trying to reach a better solution and a conclusion to the situation.”
