Harry Kane: Tottenham expect forward to train on Thursday
Tottenham Hotspur expect Harry Kane to return to first-team group training on Thursday following his period of isolation at the club’s player accommodation base, The Lodge.
Kane, 28, is currently watching a five-day quarantine at the Tottenham training ground after his vacation in the Bahamas after Euro 2020.
Athleticism Understand that Spurs plan to return Kane to group training on Thursday, but it is not clear whether the England captain will make the club’s opening game of the new Premier League season, at home against the defending champions Manchester City.
Kane did not show up for preseason fitness tests last week, but denied refusing to train in a statement after criticism from Tottenham supporters.
Pep Guardiola confirmed last week that Manchester City are keen to follow Jack Grealish’s £ 100million UK record transfer by signing Kane. But Tottenham rejected an opening offer worth £ 100million and Guardiola admitted the deal was ‘done’ if Spurs chairman Daniel Levy refused to negotiate.
Meanwhile, Tottenham’s new £ 42.5million signing Cristian Romero trains on his own as he continues to recover from a knee injury.
Romero became Tottenham’s third signing of the summer last week, following the arrivals of Pierluigi Gollini and Bryan Gil.
The 23-year-old, who was voted the best defender in Serie A last season, arrived in north London with a knee injury. Sources say Romero is already back on the training ground, raising hopes for a quick recovery.
Gil, 20, who was signed from Sevilla for £ 21.6million with Erik Lamela the other way around, is due to arrive at Hotspur Way on Tuesday.
Gil played at this summer’s Olympic Games in Tokyo, winning a silver medal with the Spanish national team.
