Manchester City is interested in signing Tottenham striker Harry Kane and intends to hold talks about a potential deal. Kane is interested in joining City, but he and his suitors are aware that negotiations with Daniel Levy will be difficult.
City’s all-time transfer record is less than £65 million, and they would have to pay more than twice that if Levy agreed to a deal for Kane. With Sergio Agüero set to leave, City is determined to sign a player who will strengthen their squad. Currently, they often play without a striker in matches. Harry Kane would be a great addition to their squad depth up front.
However, Tottenham’s chairman is unwilling to sell Kane, who has stated his desire to leave the club and believes he received a verbal agreement from Levy last summer to leave at the end of this season.
Manchester United’s interest in Kane appears to have declined since Edinson Cavani agreed to extend his contract for another year, but it could be reignited. There has been no move for England captain from Chelsea, and Levy would be particularly adamant about doing a deal with them.
Haaland, Romelu Lukaku, and Danny Ings are also on City’s shortlist to replace Sergio Aguero. Chelsea has been linked with Haaland, Lukaku, and now Kane as well. With three years left on his contract, any buying club will find it difficult – and expensive – to entice him away from Tottenham.
Manchester City plans on getting a striker for sure. With Dortmund making the Champions League next season, it can lead to Haaland continuing there for at least 1 season. City has the resources to buy Kane as well. Will clubs be willing to spend more than £100 million this summer, given the financial hit they’ve taken since the emergence of this coronavirus?
Where do you think Kane will end up? Will he stay at Tottenham or move to another Premier League team?
