Harry Kane's English teammates believe that there is a real possibility that he will refuse to participate in the pre-season training of Tottenham, as he wants to speed up his transfer to the champion Manchester City this summer.
The 27-year-old informed the Spurs in May that he wanted to try a new challenge.
"Citizens" manager Pep Guardiola is a big fan of Kane and according to the English media Man City made an initial offer of 100 million pounds, but it was rejected.
Tottenham president Daniel Levy has taken a firm stand amid intense speculation and issued a statement vowing to "do what is appropriate for the club", suggesting that he wants to keep the English star.
Newly appointed manager Nuno Espirito Santo made clear his position on Kane's future at his first press conference on Friday, stressing that the striker is still at the heart of his plans for the upcoming season.
"I have no doubts about my intentions. "What I want is for Harry to recover well and rest," the Tottenham coach told reporters.
"When he comes home from his vacation, he will feel that he has to try to get better. We are ambitious, we want to do well and we rely on Harry to do it. "
"He's 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 look forward to joining the group, "said Santo.
