Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane is available for the club’s Premier League opener against Manchester City this weekend, Nuno Espirito Santo has confirmed.

Kane has been the subject of intense transfer speculation from Spurs’ next opponents and was a no-show for training twice last week as he looked to make his stance clear.

The England captain has since returned to Hotspur Way and is quarantining in the hotel at the training ground until Thursday having returned from holiday.

Harry Kane Available to Face Manchester City

Nuno Holds Talks With Kane

Spurs boss Espirito Santo has held talks with Kane this morning regarding the striker’s future at the club.

Kane has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester City for around £150 million and the general feeling at the moment is that he wants to make the switch.

Spurs, though, have been insistent that their player will not be going anywhere and that he is part of their plans for the coming season.

Speaking after the club’s friendly win over Arsenal at the weekend, Espirito Santo said: “He’s training, he already had his first day with the sports scientists. He’s with us, it’s good.

“We expect to integrate Harry when he follows all the protocols we have to apply. We have to be very strict with the process of quarantine and not take any chances because everyone has learned the pandemic is still there, so we have to be very careful.”

In a more recent interview with Sky Sports, he added: “All the players in the squad that work on a daily basis will be options for us.”

Guardiola Confirms Interest

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has already made his interest in Kane public, stating in his press conference last week that the club were keen on the deal.

However, he made it clear that it was still up to Tottenham to negotiate with City over the move, otherwise, it would be “finished”.

He said: “I think Man City and many clubs in the world want to try to sign him, we are not an exception, but it depends on Tottenham.”
