Manchester City are unfazed in their pursuit of England captain Harry Kane and are expected to intensify their case in the coming days.
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has stated unequivocally that the club’s top scorer in each of the previous seven seasons would not be sold this summer. Spurs officials are confident in their ability to maintain hold of their wantaway striker, according to Sportsmail on Monday.
City, on the other hand, is hoping that Kane’s desire to move to the Etihad Stadium will force the issue before the transfer deadline on Tuesday, and they are not giving up hope of striking a deal. Any prospective sale would exceed the £100 million British record fee paid for Jack Grealish earlier this month, with some suggesting City would be willing to pay more than £120 million.
In June, City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak stated that the club would be “competitive and aggressive” in the market, and the club is set to make a final push for Kane. After it became evident that Erling Haaland’s immediate future lay with Borussia Dortmund, the 28-year-old became Pep Guardiola’s lone priority to replace Sergio Aguero.
