Manchester City ready to splash £100m on Harry Kane
Manchester City make an offer worth £100m for Harry Kane after striker told Tottenham he wants to leave this summer; City also open to including players in a deal; Spurs expected to reject the bid; Manchester United and Chelsea have also expressed an interest to sign the England captain
City are open to including players in addition to the cash offer, but Tottenham are expected to reject the bid.
The England captain is said to be fully focused on the Euros, with a decision on his club’s future not expected before the conclusion of the tournament.
Kane is valued at upwards of £120m and Tottenham are keen to keep him despite the 27-year-old believing he has a gentleman’s agreement with Daniel Levy.
Levy, who has appointed Juventus’ former football officer Fabio Paratici as the club’s new managing director of football, said earlier this month he sympathizes with Kane’s frustrations about the lack of silverware at Spurs but hinted a deal could be difficult to do.
“All I will say is his frustrations in not winning are shared by me and all the fans and players. We all want to win,” Levy told the club’s official website.
“One of the items that Fabio will have to deal with when he comes in is which players are going to be retained, which will be asked to look for other clubs.
“There is a market out there. What we want and what other clubs want is not always possible to achieve. We will do whatever is right for the club.”
Levy confirmed Spurs will be active in the transfer market this summer, but was keen to restrict expectations about how much money they could spend.
