Harry Kane makes his Tottenham season debut amid Manchester City transfer rumors; Spurs hang on to Wolves
Harry Kane returned to action with Tottenham for the first time this season, playing 18 minutes of a 1-0 win over Wolverhampton Wadnerers on Sunday as speculation about his future continues to swirl. Kane, who wants to leave Tottenham and join Manchester City, was not part of the victory over Pep Guardiola’s side or the UEFA Europa Conference League opener against Pacos de Ferreira, a 1-0 defeat at the Portugal.
Without Kane, Spurs manager Nuno Espirito Santo named the same team that beat Manchester City with Heung min Son in the lead and the likes of Dele Alli, Lucas Moura and Steven Bergwijn in support and were rewarded with the same result once Moreover, Dele scoring a first-half penalty which ensures Spurs are one of three teams to have won their two opening games of the season so far.

Manchester City have so far made only one offer for the striker, a £ 100million offer which was quickly rejected by Tottenha.
Nuno, who beat his former club on Sunday, has always sought to avoid any discussion of Kane’s future and said in his pre-match press conference on Friday: “He trained today. has trained well and will be training tomorrow. [Saturday] and tomorrow we’ll make a decision. “
“I’m so sorry to keep saying the same things, but this is how we work. It’s a day to day situation.”
