Tottenham talisman Harry Kane will be 'feeling like s***' as he attempts to force through a move to Manchester City, believes former Spurs and Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov.

Kane spoke of his desire to leave the club in a shocking interview with Gary Neville on 'The Overlap' before the 2020/21 season had even come to an end. And with the new campaign just over a week away, the 28-year-old is still to return to the club, having stopped in Florida on his way back from a holiday in the Bahamas, despite being due to report to training on Monday.   

The forward is desperate to seal a big-money move to Manchester City, who are also set to announce the signing of England team-mate Jack Grealish, while new manager Nuno Espirito Santo revealed on Wednesday that he still hasn't spoken to Kane.

Kane is due to return to the club this weekend, but he will have to first take a Covid test and undergo a period of isolation - which can be reduced to five days by following the 'test to release' procedure - meaning he likely won't start training until the start of next week at the earliest.

Berbatov, who signed for Tottenham in 2006, knows Kane's situation all too well, having completed a £30.75m move to United in 2008, with a 20-year-old Fraizer Campbell going the other way on loan, in a deal Sir Alex Ferguson later described more painful than his hip replacement.

The Bulgarian says Kane will be questioning the choices he has made, but the now-retired striker believes he has made the right decisions. 

'Right now, Harry Kane will be feeling like s***,' Betfair Ambassador Berbatov said. 'He will feel all this emotion going through his head, "am I doing the right thing, is that the best possible way for us to part ways?" 

'It probably is. He'll think "I spoke with the club, the chairman, everyone and they don't listen so I need to do something". 

'All these questions are going through his head, swimming around and making him at times doubt his decision about what he's doing. He'll have his team around him, his agent, family and friends that give him advice.

'The agent is probably in contact with City and they're probably swapping ideas on how to do things and then he's passing it to the player.'
