Tottenham new boss, Nuno Espirito Santo has said he has not spoken to Harry Kane since the striker skipped Spurs training but expects to meet him soon.
Kane has refused to return to training after leading England to the Euro 2020 final last month and missed the first two sessions.
Kane had a gentleman’s agreement with chairman Daniel Levy that he will be sold this summer, but it seems Spurs do not want to sell him and that has caused disaffection between player and club.
Nuno said: “I expect to speak with Harry soon. I haven’t had the chance yet. We have to, first of all, solve the problems ourselves, then I will speak to you,” Nuno told the press after Spurs’ 2-2 pre-season draw at Chelsea.
“It’s not that I don’t want to comment, what I believe is all this issue in relation to everything should be discussed internally, among us. Let’s try to avoid any kind of public argument or discussion about it. We have to focus on what is important, solve the situation, between us.
“All of pre-season has been hard for every club. It’s different, I know, but the absence of a lot of players due to international duty has made it a hard time for a lot of managers.”
