Harry Kane’s representatives reportedly contacted Manchester City in February to ask whether they were still interested in signing him from Tottenham, according to The Times. 

Kane was heavily linked with the Citizens last summer after reportedly making it clear to Spurs that he intended on seeking a fresh challenge (Sky Sports). 

The recently-crowned Premier League champions pushed hard to land the England captain, but a deal never materialised and he remained in North London (SkySports).

While Tottenham’s intent on keeping Kane paid dividends as he helped the club make its return to the Champions League, his camp was allegedly still looking in City’s direction after the failed move. 

The Times claim Kane’s representatives contacted the Manchester-based club earlier this year to understand whether they were still keen on signing the 28-year-old ahead of next season. 

However, the answer they received may not have been what they were looking for as City revealed they were now focused on signing Borussia Dortmund forward Erling Haaland. 

City confirmed earlier this month that they activated the £51.5 million buyout clause in Haaland’s contract, which will see the 21-year-old move to the Etihad Stadium in the summer (The Guardian).

Spurs Web Opinion 

City signing Haaland has taken one club off the table, although it is likely that Kane will have stayed at Tottenham regardless. 

If his representatives did make contact with them in February it is likely because Tottenham’s season was hanging in the balance, as the team endured a pretty mixed month. 

But now is the time for Spurs to push on with the expectation that Kane will lead the team from the front heading into next season.
