It has now been reported that Tottenham fined Harry Kane a grand total of two weeks wages when he failed to turn up for training earlier this summer.
Kane reportedly informed Spurs at the end of last season that he wanted to leave the club in the current transfer window.
However, a deal failed to materialise and the England captain took to social media this week to reveal that he would, in fact, be remaining at Tottenham.
The Athletic have claimed that Levy refused to negotiate with Man City over a possible Harry Kane deal, rejecting a bid of £75m and another £25m in add-ons.
City reportedly felt there was nothing to be gained in the situation, short of stumping up the full £150m to sign Kane. This whole sage apparently left the striker frustrated.
The report states Kane was told to return for pre-season training on August 2 but chose to travel to Florida instead, resulting in a fine of two weeks’ wages.
Spurs Web Opinion:
If he did actually choose to skip training and it wasn’t a misunderstanding, then two weeks’ wages is fair enough. You cannot condone or set a precedent whereby players can just refuse to train at a top Premier League club.
