Former England international Gary Neville, via Sky Sports, said that something wrong must have happened between Harry Kane and Tottenham Hotspur football club.
The striker who has long been linked with a move to Manchester City, has failed to show up for training the past few days. Spurs are yet to accept a bid for Kane from the Premier League champions, who are also currently closing Jack Grealish.
With the north Londoners not keen on selling their talisman, Neville analysed the situation.
The pundit had a message for the England captain:
“You’ve got to turn up and you’ve got to do your job. However, I’ve worked with Harry, and I can’t think of a more professional footballer that I’ve ever seen.”
He went on to talk about what will happen now between Kane and Daniel Levy, adding:
“It still doesn’t excuse it for me. He should still have come into training, and you respect your team-mates. You still have to go and stand with them and sit in the dressing-room, but it’s clear now that there’s a collision course.”
While it is understandable that the forward wants a move away from London, his latest actions are sure to leave a sour taste for everyone involved with the club. It might take even longer for the deal to be completed now.
As Gary Neville mentioned, Kane has always been known as a model professional, which makes this behaviour now seem very out of line for him. It would be in the best interest of everyone involved if the 28-year-old returned to training and let the transfer all play out behind the scenes.
The start of the Premier League is not too far away and both clubs would prefer a move to be agreed soon. For Spurs, their talisman leaving would generate a record fee and give them a chance to add some badly needed talented players to their squad.
Manchester City would obviously be delighted, as they would have secured the services of one of the best players in the country. As for Kane, it is clear that he wants to move away from Tottenham and the sooner this saga comes to an end, the better.
