Manchester City are monitoring Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski having grown frustrated in their pursuit of Tottenham forward Harry Kane, according to the Daily Mail.
Kane’s future in North London has been the subject of intense press speculation since Sky Sports claimed in May that the 27-year-old had reiterated his desire to leave Spurs ahead of the new season.
Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea were all said to have registered their interest with Kane’s representatives, CK66, which is run by his brother, Charlie.
The report claims that Manchester City tabled a £100million for Kane prior to his involvement with England at Euro 2020, however, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is determined to keep Kane at the club for at least one more season.
City are now likely to be considering alternative options to bolster their attack following the departure of Sergio Aguero at the end of the last campaign.
Pep Guardiola has previously managed Lewandowski during his time in charge of the Bundesliga giants with some of Europe’s elite believing that the Polish international could be a realistic target given the fact that Bayern are concerned that they may be forced to sell him next summer when he has just twelve months remaining on his current contract.
The fact that City are reportedly open to other targets could mean one of two things; either they are genuinely considering moving on from Kane or they are looking to create some unrest with the England captain.
Spurs must keep Kane at all costs if Levy has any ambition for the club to return to challenging for the top four.
