Tottenham Hotspur manager, Nuno Espirito Santo has admitted that he is yet to speak to star striker, Harry Kane and that the management need to "solve the problem" of his future amid repeated links to Manchester City.
Kane failed to report to Tottenham's pre-season training camp as planned, hence missed their friendly game against Chelsea on Wednesday - but the England skipper is expected to return on the weekend, should he clear the COVID-19 tests following his holiday in the Caribbean.
City are understood to be keen to sign the striker and even had a bid for him refuted as the management value him at £150 million, with the club reluctant to let go of the star considering that he still has three-years left on his current contract.
Kane believes that he has a gentleman's agreement with club chairman, Daniel Levy over a potential move, and Nuno wants to sort out his situation as soon as possible.
"It is not that I don't want to comment -- all this issue related to Harry, I believe we should discuss internally among us and try to avoid any kind of public argument or discussion about it. Us, we have to focus on what is important. We have to solve the situation but first between us. We solve the situation internally with the club. Speaking and trying to reach a better solution and conclusion to this situation," he said at a press conference.
"The answer I will give you is I expect to speak with Harry soon and I haven't had the chance yet. Anything in relation to Harry is internal so first of all we have to first of all solve the problems ourselves and then I will speak with you."
The 28-year-old is one of best strikers in the world and is Tottenham's most important player as seen by the 221 goals he has scored for them in just 336 appearances in all competitions. However, he has failed to win a trophy with the club ever since breaking through in 2013/14, with the player keen to win trophies - something which is much more plausible at City.
