Harry Kane was absent this Monday to the pre-season medical tests planned by the Tottenham and the European media talk that he has started a rebellion to be able to leave for a new team. Is that the gunner is in the folder of the Manchester City, who has already made offers for him, but the leadership of the London cast has rejected them.
This Monday the scorer was expected at the Tottenham training center for a covid test and physical tests, after the three weeks of vacation that followed Euro 2020, where England was a finalist. But the footballer did not show up.
The Spurs, which will debut precisely against the Citizens in the Premier League on August 15, they declined to comment officially on their star player’s foul.

Rumors pointed to Riyad mahrez with one of those that could be sold, but a few days ago he reaffirmed his commitment to Pep’s team in search of the first Champions League of the English institution.
