TOTTENHAM captain Harry Kane will fly to Spain with his team-mates on Wednesday and begin his bid to be fit for the Champions League final.

Spurs meet Premier League rivals Liverpool on Saturday in Madrid but face the threat of entering the game without skipper Kane.

The 25-year-old England striker picked up a ligament injury in April during the quarter-final against Manchester City and has since missed nine games.

However, the Daily Mail report England’s captain will board the same flight as his team-mates in two days time and work to be fit in time for the final.

Kane’s recovery since April has been good with SunSport revealing last week he had started running and ball work exercises.

Each team can have 12 subs on the bench so Kane will almost certainly be in the squad unless he suffers a setback.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has not yet made a decision on whether to start his captain and will use the days leading up to the final in order to make his assessment.

The Argentine predicts the decision to play Kane will only be judged as the right or wrong one after the game and depending on the result.

Pochettino said: “Whether to start him is a point we’re thinking about a lot. It is a decision that, one way or the other, will be judged after the game.


“If we win: fantastic decision. If we lose: s*** decision and you are going to kill me.”

Kane’s England boss, Gareth Southgate, is also baking on the forward’s fitness for the Uefa Nations League finals next month where England face Holland.

Southgate will be at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium on Saturday with several of his England players set to feature.
