Tottenham forward Harry Kane is hoping that his immediate future will be resolved after Sunday’s clash with Manchester City, according to reports. The 28-year-old is desperate to seal a move away from north London this summer, with the newly-crowned Premier League champions harbouring a firm interest in securing his signature.

Kane returned to full training on Friday after completing a mandatory period of isolation at Spurs Lodge upon returning from his summer holiday in the Bahamas.

He is believed to be keen on fighting for silverware at City after failing to win a major trophy during his time at Spurs.

However, chairman Daniel Levy is determined to keep hold of Kane into the new season and beyond, with the forward still under contract until 2024.

City have already seen an offer in the region of £100million turned down by Levy, but the Manchester heavyweights are not prepared to give up the chase just yet.

An improved bid of £127m will reportedly be made over the coming days, but it remains to be seen whether this figure will be enough to tempt Spurs into selling their prized asset.

Kane is said to believe that he will eventually join City in spite of Levy’s reluctance to sell, with the England skipper hoping that his situation will become clearer after Sunday’s fixture, according to the Evening Standard.

The report claims that a deal remains off the table ahead of the match, but Kane is optimistic that a breakthrough will be found over the coming days.

Spurs boss Nuno Espirito Santo revealed in his pre-match press conference that he would make a decision on the forward’s involvement in the fixture after Saturday’s training session.

“Harry joined the group today, he trained, we had a talk,” the 47-year-old told reporters on Friday afternoon.

“Of course it’s a private conversation but everything is okay. He’s preparing himself, like Bryan [Gil], like [Cristian] Romero, players that joined us later.

“We still have the session of tomorrow to decide, like I mention to you Romero, Bryan, Harry, players that don’t have too much and too many sessions with us.”

When pressed on whether Kane could end up joining City over the coming weeks, Nuno stressed that he is still a Tottenham player and will continue to be treated as such.

“He’s here with us, he’s here with us,” added the Spurs boss.

Kane has played a crucial role for Spurs ever since making his first-team debut for the club all the way back in 2014.

He scored more goals than any other Premier League player last season and racked up the highest number of assists in the division, but was unable to prevent his side from slipping to a lacklustre seventh-placed finish.
