Harry Kane absent from Spurs training ahead of potential transfer

Harry Kane has stirred up a bit of controversy after failing to turn up for coronavirus testing with Tottenham Hotspur on Monday. The test was meant to be done so he can re-join the squad for pre-season training on Tuesday. However, the wantaway player was mysteriously absent.

Kane is believed to be on his way out to sign a new contract with Premier League champions Manchester City. However, the deal has not been confirmed yet, and for all intents and purposes, the striker is still a Spurs player.

The club could not provide an explanation as to why he was MIA on Monday, leading to speculations about the situation. The England captain was expected to go back to training after a three-week summer break, but his summer holidays were pushed back due to the fact that England reached the final of the European Championship earlier this summer, where they lost to Italy.

However, after enjoying his downtime with his family, Kane was nowhere to be found. Two possible scenarios are now being put forward.

According to the BBC, following Kane’s decision to seek employment elsewhere, he may have made a “gentleman’s agreement” with the club that allows him to skip training. However, Tottenham chairman Danil Levy has not confirmed this.
