Harry Kane failed to show up at Hotspur Way for the second day in a row as Manchester City attempt to bring him to the Etihad Stadium. The 28-year-old was due to report for training this week but has been a no-show and risks incurring a big fine.

Kane told Tottenham earlier in the summer that he wants to leave amid interest from Man City. He believes he has a gentleman’s agreement with Daniel Levy that will allow him a departure, but Spurs aren’t cooperating over a deal and are rebuffing any offer that comes in.

The England international has taken matters into his own hands and now Tottenham have a difficult decision to make – the new season begins in less than two weeks and their best player is refusing to train. Kane is Spurs’ only centre-forward, so the Lilywhites risk leaving themselves short in attack if he’s sold.

City have offered £100m for the 28-year-old but will need to pay in excess of £120m to stand a chance of landing his signature. Tottenham are being bullish and have the striker tied down for another three years, but what good is it if he won’t play?
