Manchester City will end their interest in signing Harry Kane during the current transfer window if they manage to complete a deal for Jack Grealish, according to the Manchester Evening News.
The Premier League champions tabled a £100million offer for the Aston Villa midfielder on Friday.
Should City manage to secure the services of Grealish, the report claims that a move for Kane this summer would not be financially viable for the Etihad outfit unless they are able to raise significant funds from the sale of players.
Villa are said to be confident of retaining their captain, with the move resting on whether the England international will push for an exit.
Tottenham have no intention of allowing Kane, who has three years left to run on his current contract to leave.
The Telegraph reported yesterday that the 28-year-old plans to inform chairman Daniel Levy of his desire to join Pep Guardiola’s side.
It seems highly unlikely that City would spend in excess of £250million this summer without significant sales being generated. Daniel Levy holds all of the power in the situation given the length of Kane’s contract.
Frustratingly, Spurs fans could have seen Grealish and Kane lining up in North London over the past couple of seasons if the club had not tried to low ball Villa and would not meet their £30m valuation.
