England players that spent the European Championships with Harry Kane think that there is a possibility that the striker may not return to first-team training with Tottenham in an attempt to force a transfer away from the club, according to the Daily Telegraph.
Kane reportedly wants to force a transfer away from Spurs in order to take his career to the next level. The England captain is due to turn 28-years-old later this month which means that he will enter the peak of his career. He is now not going to get better and should ideally be playing for a club where he can win trophies.
Kane’s future is the subject of speculation and Manchester City are one of the clubs that are interested in him as per The Mirror. However, City have reportedly offered player+cash deals which Tottenham have turned down, and in turn the Manchester club have baulked at paying the full transfer fee quoted by the London team.
Since starting his professional career, Kane has yet to win a major trophy with Spurs and the club does not look like they will win major silverware anytime soon and so it is certainly justifiable that he may be looking for a new challenge.
With the COVID-19 pandemic having taken a major toll on clubs worldwide, there is a chance that Spurs may not attract a good offer for Kane in the current transfer window.
Kane’s current contract with Spurs runs until the summer of 2024 and so the Lilywhites will not be willing to sell him for a cheap fee, it will likely have to be a record fee.
Should Kane refuse to train, he will sour his relationship with the club’s fans and board. He should not do this but instead give the club notice to sell him next summer if not in January should a suitable offer not arrive this summer.
Kane has been linked with both Manchester United and Manchester City, with both clubs interested in player+cash deals although no serious headway has been made by either club given Tottenham’s insistence on a high transfer fee.
