Tottenham striker Harry Kane has not shown up for training this morning as he believes he has a 'gentleman's agreement' with Daniel Levy to leave Spurs.
The Englishman has been linked with a move away from Tottenham all summer, and Daily Star Sport understands he feels he has an agreement with the Spurs chairman to leave the club.
Kane was due to show up for training on Monday after a short break following his involvement at Euro 2020.
Reports have claimed it is his choice not to attend training, with suggestions the decision had been related to a COVID test following the revelation.
The 28-year-old has expressed his desire to win trophies and wants to become one of the 'world's best'.
Kane has made it clear to Spurs that he wants to join City to fulfil his ambitions of challenging for the game's biggest prizes.
But Levy remains adamant he does not want to sell the club's prize asset, which has led to a stand-off between the club and player.
The player's refusal to attend training means he has effectively gone on strike and shows he is prepared to play hardball with Spurs in his attempts to get the move he wants.
But the move could only serve to harden Levy's stance and make him even more determined to keep him.
Will Harry Kane join Manchester City this summer? Comment below
Kane told Tottenham back in May that he wished to leave the club, and at the end of June, Manchester City bid £100million for the star.
However, Tottenham value Kane considerably higher than City's entry offer, with Levy demanding closer to £160m and the two clubs remain miles apart in their valuation of Kane.
It means that City would have to destroy the Premier League transfer record of £89million to land the England ace, when they are already bidding in the region of £100m for Aston Villa star Jack Grealish.
Chairman Levy said back in June that he sympathises with Kane, but hinted that a deal may be difficult to do.
It seems that the 28-year-old has had enough, and is willing to do everything that he can to earn his move away.
