Harry Kane’s future at Tottenham remains shrouded in mystery.
The 28-year-old has made it no secret of his desire to win trophies, something Spurs have failed to do since clinching the League Cup back in 2008, prompting rumours of a potential switch to reigning Premier League champions Manchester City.
And Kane added fuel to the fire as he’s currently absent from Tottenham’s training ground amid his transfer stand-off with the club, football.london understands.
The England captain was expected to return to the club’s training ground on Monday morning for pre-season training but football.london understands that the prolific frontman is yet to return to the club.
The north London club have not received any official transfer request from Kane but equally, they are yet to have been informed when he will join up with the rest of the squad ahead of their Premier League opener against City, which takes place in less than two weeks time.
Kane would likely command a transfer fee well in excess of £100million given he still has three years remaining on his current contract with the club.
The deadly striker signed a six-year deal back in 2018 and he has certainly changed his tune in the three years since.
“I’m really excited, it’s a proud day,” Kane told Spurs website after signing his new deal three years ago.
“Obviously it’s been a great few seasons and I’m looking forward to the future. I’m looking forward to the new stadium first and foremost and just to keep progressing as a club.
“It’s been fantastic to consistently get in the Champions League so I’m really excited to have another go at that and with the Premier League and FA Cup, we’ll look to go as far as we can. For us as a club, it’s just about keeping improving and we’ll work hard to do that.

“I’m obviously really excited about the World Cup coming up so it’s nice to get this done before that and I’m just looking to go out there and enjoy it now. It’s been a great season, like always the aim is to try to improve so hopefully I can do that this summer and obviously next season as well.”
It remains to be seen whether Kane will be plying his trade at the Tottenham Hotspur next season but he won’t be allowed to leave on the cheap, with Spurs’ chairman Daniel Levy likely to play hardball in any transfer standoff.
