Kane fails to turn up for Tottenham pre-season

Tottenham's Harry Kane fails to report for pre-season duty in bid to force Man City move

The Harry Kane situation has taken a turn for the worse as the wantaway English striker has failed to report for duty in north London today, as initially scheduled, in an attempt to force a move away from Tottenham.

Sky Sports' Paul Gilmour initially broke this news, revealing that the Three Lions sensation was a no-show for Monday's pre-season training session. Having led the English national team all the way to the Euro 2020 final, the 28-year-old was given an extended break which was due to end today, with his absence raising several eyebrows.

Spurs' talisman forward was set to undergo COVID-19 tests and begin preparations for the upcoming Premier League campaign but failed to show up, putting pressure on Daniel Levy in this transfer fiasco. His absence has nothing to do with a possible coronavirus contraction, as confirmed by Fabrizio Romano on Twitter. Instead, Kane believes he has a year-long "gentleman's agreement" to leave Tottenham this summer, and in an approach similar to Lionel Messi last summer, he looks to have acted upon that agreement.

The Golden Boot holder has made no secret of his desire to leave north London in pursuit of silverware. Having spent his entire professional career with Spurs, Kane has failed to lift a single trophy despite being one of the deadliest strikers in world football. The player stressed this point earlier this year in an interview with Gary Neville on SkyBet's The Overlap but getting club chairman Daniel Levy to sanction a move has been difficult.

Man City are the favorites to land the Englishman due to their need for a Sergio Aguero replacement. Unfortunately for them, Levy is refusing to entertain any bids below the region of $208.5M (£150M), which is a figure even a club as wealthy as the Citizens can't meet. 

More details will emerge regarding this situation and whether the English striker will go out on a full-fledged strike. Will Daniel Levy be forced into selling his star player after this? This remains a mystery. However, one thing we know is that the Tottenham chairman isn't one to be bullied into a sale.
