Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane has broken his silence amid a storm of rumours surrounding his future.
Kane courted controversy earlier in the week after it emerged he had skipped training when he was expected to resume on Monday, August 2.
The striker has been heavily linked to Manchester City, who recently completed the mega signing of Kane’s international teammate Jack Grealish.
Despite Manchester City making it clear that Kane was on their radar, talks have not progressed and the striker remains a Tottenham player.
Amid the risk of falling out with Tottenham’s fans, Kane released a statement explaining his stance on Friday, August 6.
“It’s almost ten years since I made my Spurs debut,” he started.
“For every one of those years, the fans have shown me total support and love,”
"That’s why it hurts to read some of the comments that have been made this week, questioning my professionalism,” he went on.
Kane, who is Spurs’s record goalscorer, went on to reveal he would be resuming training with the club on Saturday, August 7.
While I won’t go into the specifics of the situation, I want to clarify that I would never and have never refused to train. I will be returning to the club tomorrow, as planned,”
Guardiola’s stance on Kane
With the new Premier League season less than a week away, Kane and Manchester City are running out of time in reaching an agreement.

In his latest press conference, Pep Guardiola addressed the situation where he admitted City were still interested in the 28-year old but added it was really up to Spurs if they were willing to sell.
"He (Kane) is a player for Tottenham Hotspur and if Tottenham doesn't want to negotiate, it is finished," Guardiola said as quoted by Sky sports.
