The Guardian have claimed that Manchester City are aware that negotiations with Daniel Levy for Harry Kane will prove anything but straightforward this summer.
Sky Sports reported on Monday that Kane has reiterated his desire to leave the club to the Tottenham hierarchy and that Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea could make a move for the Spurs star.
However, The Guardian now suggest that United’s interest in the striker has cooled after Edinson Cavani signed a new contract.
Chelsea are reportedly yet to make a move for the 27-year-old, with Levy thought to be especially resistant to doing a deal with Tottenham’s London rivals.
City are said to hold a serious interest in the England captain and have even spoken to his representatives.
While Kane is reportedly open to moving to the Etihad this summer, it is explained that a deal will prove difficult, with Pep Guardiola’s side having to part ways with more than twice their previous record transfer fee of £65m to sign the 27-year-old.
Spurs are said to still retain hope of holding on to the striker, with the club hopeful that the appointment of the new manager could convince him to stick around.
