Manchester City’s pursuit of Harry Kane appears to be over if they are successful in bringing Jack Grealish to the Etihad. According to the Manchester Evening News, if a £100 million bid for Aston Villa’s talismanic playmaker is accepted, Pep Guardiola will not have the money to pursue Kane as well.
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has stated that he has no intention of selling England captain Kane, who has three years left on his contract, and that a deal would require at least £150 million.
However, with Grealish set to become the most expensive acquisition in English football history, City would have to sell numerous players for a substantial profit before considering another record-breaking deal for Kane, according to the MEN.
Kane, for one, shocked European football when he officially expressed his wish to quit Spurs before Euro 2020 in May. In an interview with Gary Neville, he went on to suggest that playing with City’s Kevin De Bruyne would be a’striker’s dream,’ implying that Guardiola should come and fetch him.
