The Athletic have claimed that Harry Kane asked the Manchester City players in the England squad back in March what life was like in the North West.
The news about Kane reiterating his desire to leave Tottenham first broke on Monday evening and has dominated the headlines for the past couple of days.
The Athletic now claim that Manchester City enquired about the England captain last summer and that he was keen on joining.
However, Daniel Levy is said to have turned down the offer, asking Kane to give him one more year, with the striker thus believing that he is entitled to a move this summer.
Kane is City’s first choice to replace Sergio Aguero and the Tottenham star’s conversations with the likes of John Stones and Kyle Walker reportedly left the City stars convinced that the striker wants to move to the Etihad.
However, it is explained that Daniel Levy maintains the 27-year-old is not for sale, particularly to a domestic rival.
Spurs Web Opinion
With Kane contracted to Spurs until 2024, all the power lies with Levy. I cannot see any club being in a position to meet the Tottenham chairman’s asking price this summer. I would expect Kane to stay one more year and potentially leave next summer when Levy will likely have to accept around £80m as he would only have two years left on his deal.
