Pundit claims Man City could offer player plus cash deal to Spurs this summer


Tony Cascarino believes that Manchester City could get Tottenham to soften their stance on Harry Kane this summer if they offered the North London club a lucrative player plus cash deal.

If not for City’s utter dominance this season, Kane would likely stand a great chance of taking home the PFA Player of the Award as the Tottenham star has been a class above the rest this season.

However, despite Kane’s individual brilliance on the pitch Spurs have had a season to forget, with the club on course to finish outside the top four for a second season running.

Many pundits have urged the England captain to leave Tottenham if he wants to challenge for major honours, with City rumoured to be one of the club’s showing interest in snapping up the 27-year-old.

However, some sources continue to reiterate that Spurs have no intention of selling Kane this summer, with Daniel Levy prepared to fight hard to hold on to the talismanic striker.

Cascarino believes the Spurs chairman could be prepared to change his tune if City offered some of their fringe players to Tottenham in a player plus cash deal in exchange for Kane.

The former Chelsea striker said on talkSPORT’s Weekend Sports Breakfast: “It’s a different dynamic at Man City, they’re obviously letting him [Sergio Aguero] go because they are going to make a big signing. I think that’s pretty clear.

On potential Aguero replacements, he added: “If they can get a deal done, it will be [Harry] Kane. That’s the one I would be looking at.

“I think [Erling] Haaland is a bit trickier because of the agent, the dynamics and the involvement of Dortmund. I think there is a time, sometimes, when players have to go and that is Kane’s time now.

“You could argue Daniel Levy will want this and want that. I think players are needed at Tottenham and I think a player plus cash deal could be easily made available because, like we saw yesterday, there are a lot of fantastic players that aren’t playing in Manchester City’s first-team.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if there was a player plus cash package.”
