Harry Kane became close friends with Jack Grealish during Euro 2020 and he confided in the Aston Villa star about his plans to leave Tottenham this summer, according to Football Insider.
The England captain has told the Lilywhites he wants out and has refused to return for pre-season training.
It has now been revealed that he planned this over the course of Euro 2020.
The report claims that he told Grealish that he would do whatever he can to leave Tottenham in this transfer window.
Both players could be reunited at Manchester City as the Citizens are also chasing the signature of the Villa man.
Kane has surprised Tottenham and football fans in general by not showing up.
The striker has been the ideal model of loyalty since he has been at Tottenham having missed out on moves to top European clubs.
But he is now 28 and has no major trophy in his cabinet at the moment.
He knows that he might have to move before he can change that and that is one reason he has started this civil war with Spurs.
Tottenham is determined to win this battle of wills and that means they could force Kane to eventually return to training unless City or his other suitors meet their asking price.
