Harry Kane BEGINS Tottenham’s first pre-season clash amid Bayern Munich talks as Ange Postecoglou begins her reign against West Ham in Australia
Harry Kane has been named in the starting line-up for Tottenham’s first pre-season clash against West Ham, as new manager Ange Postecoglou begins his reign.
The striker, who scored 30 goals in 38 Premier League appearances last season, has been strongly linked with a departure this summer, with Mail Sport reporting that Bayern Munich chief executive Jan-Christian Dreesen has met the chairman. of the Spurs, Daniel Levy, last week.
PSG are also interested in Kane, although Mail Sport understands that the Englishman does not want to go over to the French side. But despite the talks, Totteham returns to normality on the pitch and their pre-season begins.
Meanwhile, James Maddison, who completed a £45m move from Leicester earlier in the summer, makes his first appearance for the north London club, alongside Yves Bissouma and Oliver Skipp in midfield.
New signing Manor Solomon also gets the nod, with Richarlison on the bench and Son Heung-min missing out entirely.

James Maddison is set to make his first appearance for Spurs since joining the club last month.
Goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario will also make his debut after signing from Empoli
The new Tottenham goalkeeper, Guglielmo Vicario, also makes his debut as a starter, with Pedro Porro, Cristian Romero, Japhet Tanganga and Sergio Reguilon at the helm.
Spurs suffered a disappointing campaign last season, finishing eighth after missing out on European football.
This has led to further speculation about Kane’s future, but for now he remains with the club and hopes his pre-season gets off to a positive start.
Postecoglou will also try to make a positive first impression, with the Australian back home for Tottenham’s first pre-season clash.
The 57-year-old vowed to give fans a team to be proud of after a difficult 12 months for the north London side, and a win over West Ham would be the first step in getting Spurs back on track.
Spurs XI: Vicario, Porro, Romero, Tanganga, Reguilon, Skipp, Bissouma, Maddison, Kulusevski, Solomon, Kane.
