Why Harry Kane has not travelled with Tottenham squad to face Man City
Tottenham vs Man City
Sunday’s marquee Premier League tie sees Tottenham play host to Manchester City.
City head into the game looking to get their title defence off to a good start, despite being without some key players like Phil Foden.
Tottenham, on the other hand, are no doubt eager to begin life under Nuno Espirito Santo on a high note, with the Portuguese likely targeting his first silverware in the English top-flight.

Both sides are set to release their starting line-ups an hour before kick-off, but before that, the main talking point, of course, has surrounded Harry Kane.
Kane is of course currently a Spurs player, but City have been heavily linked with the hitman all summer, with the latest update regarding the situation on Thursday having suggested that the Sky Blues are preparing a fresh proposal for his services:
EXCL. Manchester City are not giving up on Harry Kane deal. Man City board preparing a new bid for €150m – if Spurs stance will change 🔵🏴 #MCFC
Tottenham have not received any new proposal for Kane yet, and want to keep him – Man City strategy is to be ready… and wait #THFC pic.twitter.com/XoUwTU3QmL

And on Sunday, rumours over Kane’s future are once again no doubt set to continue after it has been reported that the hitman did not travel with Tottenham’s squad to face Man City
The reason given for this is due to his lack of fitness, but both sets of fans are no doubt set to speculate on other potential reasons.
