Manchester City have reportedly been provided with a further stumbling block ahead of a possible move for Tottenham Hotspur forward Harry Kane.
Last month, it was strongly claimed that the England international was open to ending his long-term association with the North London outfit.
City are one of a number of clubs who are aware that it will take a bid in the region of £150m to tempt Spurs chairman Daniel Levy into a sale.
The report says that Kane would not be allowed to make his City debut at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, whether that be through a contractual agreement or Levy delaying any transfer.
Spurs are allegedly wary that the return of the 27-year-old would overshadow the opening home fixture for their new manager, likely to be Paulo Fonseca.
