England players reportedly believe that there is an increasing chance that Harry Kane will not return to pre-season training with Tottenham in order to force through his dream move to Manchester City this summer, according to the Telegraph.
Whilst the England skipper has not handed in an official transfer request, Kane told Spurs that he was ready to leave the club for a fresh challenge and win major trophies which alerted all the top clubs around Europe.
City have shown the most solid interest so far as reports have suggested that they have already made a £100 million offer which was swiftly rejected by Spurs chairman Daniel Levy.
Earlier this summer, Levy hinted that despite Kane's desire to leave, he will ultimately put the club's interests first and said: "What we want and what other clubs want is not always possible to achieve. We will do whatever is right for the club."
Spurs' new manager Nuno Espirito Santo had his first press conference with the club yesterday and spoke similarly about the England captain: "I have no doubts in my mind. What I wish is for Harry to recover well and have a good rest.
"When he arrives he will feel that he has to commit himself to become better. We are ambitious, we want to do well and we count on Harry to do that.
"Harry is our player, period. There is no need to talk about anything else. Now is the time for him to rest. When he returns we can have a good conversation. I am looking forward to him joining the group."
Since Kane's senior debut for Spurs during the 2011-12 season, he has scored 221 goals in 336 appearances and has reportedly not yet spoken with the new Spurs boss about the possibility of staying in North London for another year.
Even though the England forward has reportedly got an unwritten agreement with the club which would allow him to leave this summer, Levy is still looking to hold firm on not letting the striker go if the right price is not met.
