Nuno Espirito Santo has suggested a late decision will be made on Harry Kane’s availability against Manchester City this weekend.
Tottenham’s Premier League campaign kicks off against City on Sunday, and the build-up has been dominated by talk of Kane’s future.
The striker has been heavily linked with a move to City, with Fabrizio Romano reporting that the champions are preparing a new bid worth £127 million.
However, speaking in his press conference on Friday afternoon, Nuno revealed Kane could play a part on Sunday after returning to training.
“Harry joined the group today, he trained, we had a talk. Of course it’s a private conversation but everything is OK,” said the new Spurs manager (via the London Evening Standard).
“He’s preparing himself, like Bryan [Gil], like [Cristian] Romero, players that joined us later. We have to be careful but everything’s OK.
“We still have the session tomorrow to decide on players that don’t have too many sessions with us. We have to think and we still have the day of tomorrow to make decisions.”
The question is: will Kane be fit enough to feature from the start having only returned to group training on Friday?
The England captain made it all the way to the final of Euro 2020 and often looked tired at the tournament, bringing his fitness for the new club season into question.
With that in mind, there is a good chance Son Heung-min will start through the middle against City, supported by the likes of Lucas Moura and Steven Bergwijn.
