Harry Kane: Nuno facing late call over Tottenham talisman for Man City Premier League opener
Harry Kane is not due back in group training with Tottenham until Friday, leaving him with limited time to be ready for Sunday’s visit of Manchester City.
Kane has been training individually while quarantining at the club’s Enfield base since his belated return from holiday in the Bahamas and Florida on Saturday.
On Thursday morning, he is due to take a PCR test under the Government’s test-to-release scheme and, if negative, he will be free to rejoin the squad on Friday.
Kane, who wants to leave Spurs for City this summer, held socially distanced talks with new Spurs head coach Nuno Espirito Santo for the first time on Monday afternoon.
Beforehand, Nuno said “all the squad that work on a daily basis” would be in contention to face City but it is unclear if he would consider Kane after just two days with the group or whether the England captain is in the right state of mind to feature.
New signing Cristian Romero is also a doubt after training individually at the start of this week, having joined Spurs with a knock sustained at the Copa America.
Fellow new boy Bryan Gil trained with the squad for the first time on Wednesday afternoon after undergoing Covid and medical testing in the morning.
