Manchester City have nonsensed reports suggesting that they have agreed a £160million fee to sign Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane, according to The Manchester Evening News.
The Sun reported last night on their website and also on today’s front page of the print edition that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy had performed a u-turn and had informed Kane that he was willing to allow him to move to their Premier League competitors.
It was suggested that Kane had agreed a £400,000-a-week deal with Pep Guardiola’s side and was sharing his delight over the proposed move with guests at his brother Charlie’s wedding last weekend.
MEN report that City club sources have insisted that they would never look to spend such a significant amount on a player, which would be over double the figure they paid Benfica to land central defender Ruben Dias last year (Evening Standard).
It is claimed that while Kane remains a target of the Premier League champions, Spurs have once again today reiterated their stand that they still not prepared to sell him.
Spurs would be foolish to look to sell Kane to a Premier League rival. Daniel Levy holds all of the power with Kane still having three years left on his contract.
The forward turns 28 later this month and it would be questionable if a club would actually be prepared to pay such a significant amount considering his age.
Levy needs to prove to Spurs fans that he is still ambitious and look to retain Kane, while also completing the painful rebuild that the side so desperately needs to be competitive once again.
