According to Saturday’s print edition of AS (as relayed by Sport Witness), Manchester City have not given up hope of snapping up Harry Kane in the future after missing out on the striker during the summer transfer window.
Despite chasing Kane all summer, the Premier League champions were unable to strike a deal with Spurs for the England captain.
Pep Guardiola admitted that City tried everything they could to sign the striker but Daniel Levy refused to negotiate.
It has since been claimed by the likes of David Ornstein that City are unlikely to make a renewed attempt for Kane in the future and that Guardiola’s men made it clear to the Spurs striker that this summer was his window if he wanted to leave North London.
However, if the latest update from AS is to be believed, City still have their eye on the 28-year-old despite failing to strike a deal with Tottenham over the summer.
The report discusses the race for Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland next summer and suggests that Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid will battle it out for the Norway international.
AS claim the reason City are unlikely to be involved in the bidding war for Haaland is because they ‘continue to think more about Kane’.
Spurs Web Opinion
One would fully expect Kane to leave next summer. I cannot see him signing a new contract that does not contain a release clause after what happened this summer.
So next summer will likely be the last window when Spurs can get a decent fee for the striker as he will have two years left on his deal.
I still believe we could fetch around £100m for him as we could get a bidding war going for him. Whoever does not get Mbappe or Haaland, will likely be prepared to pay big for Kane.
