Italian football journalist Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Manchester City are still setting their sights on signing Harry Kane this summer.
Romano believes that there could be an update on the situation in the next few hours or days ahead but insisted that Tottenham are still of the opinion that the forward will not be leaving North London and it would take a crazy bid to change their stance.
Sky Sports reported last month that Kane has once again told Spurs that he is keen to depart the club this summer and originally wanted his future sorted before the Euro 2020 campaign had kicked off.
Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea are all said to have registered their interest with Kane’s agent over the possibility of signing him.
Romano told the Here We Go podcast (16:30: “The feeling around Harry Kane is still the same. Tottenham are changing a lot of things in the club with the bench and many things, manager, director.
“The situation of Harry Kane is still the same, the player wants to play Champions League football and Manchester City are really pushing for him.
“I think there will be some update on this situation in the next hours or days as Manchester City really want Harry Kane but we have to respect Tottenham’s position and Tottenham are still saying ‘no’, the player is not leaving.
“They want a crazy bid or the player is not leaving, that is why it is not an easy negotiation as always but Manchester City are really intending to push for Harry Kane.”
With Kane still having three years remaining on his contract, the power fully rests with Daniel Levy. It remains to be seen whether Levy would consider a sizeable offer which would allow Fabio Paratici to re-invest the funds into a number of positions.
