Former Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino has claimed that he would be surprised if Manchester City did not sign both Jack Grealish and Harry Kane this summer after recent developments (talkSPORT).
The Athletic reported on July 16 that Man City would not go for ‘one or the other’ and would attempt to sign both of the England stars, as long as they could offload some of their own players.
There appeared to be a breakthrough in the Grealish saga this week, as Sky Sports reported that City’s £100m bid for Jack Grealish is expected to be accepted by Aston Villa.
On Monday morning, Kane did not return to training at Hotspur Way as expected. He was scheduled to have a coronavirus test but the 28-year-old did not turn up (BBC).
Cascarino has claimed that, after the breakthrough for Grealish, Man City will not stop there.
He said: “Manchester City are at a stage where they are now going to be buying the very best. They have always been big spenders.
“I am afraid to say that it’s very hard to see Man City not getting Kane and Grealish because they have spent more than £200 million in the summer before.
“If they bought two of them, and that would go in excess of £200 million, then it wouldn’t be what they have done before.”
It always appeared that Man City would have to choose between Grealish or Kane but the more days go by and the more rumours whirl – you start to believe that they will sign both.
Grealish appears to be close and Kane not turning up to training puts some power in City’s court from a negotiating point of view.
