HARRY KANE finally arrived back at Spurs from his extended holiday – straight into quarantine at the training ground.
But Tottenham boss Nuno Espirito Santo wants Kane’s bitter £160million transfer saga with Manchester City brought to a swift conclusion.
Nuno is set to hold talks with talisman Kane for the first time this week.
And SunSport understands Nuno will push for his exit – if the striker makes it clear that he has no future at the club.
Kane, 28, started a five-day self-isolation period at Spurs Lodge after his return from the Bahamas via Florida.
But the England skipper will train on his own up to and including Thursday, meaning he will almost certainly miss the Premier League opener, ironically against City at home next Sunday.
Kane will only start training with the full squad on Friday once he passes a Covid test.
Despite Kane’s return, Portuguese Nuno is losing patience after seeing preparations for his debut season overshadowed by their star man reporting back late for pre-season.
BEHIND CLOSED DOORS
While the ex-Wolves boss has remained positive about working with Kane in public, SunSport understands he is less forgiving in private and will tell chairman Daniel Levy to sell as he only wants committed players.
During his time at Wolves, the Portuguese spoke often about the spirit of unity running through his squad.
It is the way Nuno likes to work as a manager, placing his full trust in players.
Kane staying away is exactly the kind of behaviour he refuses to tolerate.
And Nuno will need to be convinced by the player that he actually cares enough to play.

Kane returned to the UK to finally begin his pre-season training a week before the campaign kicks off.
On Friday, he vowed not to go on strike to force through a move to City.
Kane is staying on site at Hotspur Way and will work on his fitness after his summer break.
