The Daily Mirror have claimed that Manchester City are still £50million short of meeting Tottenham’s £150million valuation of Harry Kane.

With a little over a week left until the transfer window shuts, there is still no clarity over whether Kane will still be a Spurs player come September 1st.

It was reported last week that Manchester City were willing to offer around £120m including add-ons for the England captain, who has travelled with the Spurs squad for this afternoon’s clash against Wolves.

However, The Mirror have now claimed that the Premier League champions have made no such offer and are yet to improve on their opening £100m bid for Kane.

The report suggested that it would take a £150m offer purely to bring Daniel Levy to the negotiating table.

It is explained that City boss Pep Guardiola is ‘crazy’ about Kane and rejected the chance to pursue alternative targets including Romelu Lukaku and Erling Haaland this summer.

City are said to have had a combined budget of around £200m to land Kane and Grealish this summer and it is stated that the Etihad hierarchy believed they could get the Tottenham striker for £100m due to the perceived gentleman’s agreement the 28-year-old has with Levy.

Spurs Web Opinion

I still have a feeling that City will eventually meet Tottenham’s valuation and that Levy will accept the bid.

I expect Fabio Paratici to be working on potential replacements for the England captain at the moment since Spurs will know there is a chance that City could make an offer that would be irresponsible to turn down.
