Tottenham striker Harry Kane will miss the start of the Premier League season after his exploits at Euro 2020.
Kane, who was part of the England squad that reached the final of this summer’s competition, is expected to still be working on his fitness when the new campaign kicks off in three weeks, The Telegraph reports.
Tottenham will start the league season on August 15 against Manchester City, which is strongly linked with a transfer to Kane.

However, it appears that Kane is not in the competition for either club.
While many of Tottenham’s players are involved in preparing for the season, Kane has yet to return to training after playing for England in the Euro 2020 final against Italy on 11 July.
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has insisted he will not sell Kane, despite suggestions the striker could join City for £160m.
