According to a report in Manchester Evening News, sources from both Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City have denied claims of a bid for Harry Kane by the Premier League champions.
Pep Guardiola’s side are thought to be at front of the queue for Kane’s signature this summer.
However, The Daily Star revealed on Sunday that Pep Guardiola’s men are not prepared to have protracted negotiations for the England captain and will instead make a solitary take-it-or-leave-it £100m offer to Spurs.
Fabrizio Romano claimed earlier today that City have made an opening £100m bid for the 27-year-old, with the Premier League champions, also prepared to include a player such as the likes of Aymeric Laporte, Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus as a part of the deal.
However, Manchester Evening News have now said that sources from both clubs have denied an official bid has been lodged.
It is explained that City do not expect any developments involving the striker to be made until the end of Euro 2020.
Nevertheless, the report does go on to add that Kane remains a top priority for City this summer, with Pep Guardiola believing that the Spurs star would be a perfect fit for his system.
£100m plus a player is a derisory offer given what Kane has contributed to Spurs over the past few seasons. It would take much more than that for Daniel Levy’s head to be turned.
