Man City to offer ‘player-plus-cash transfer for Harry Kane’

Charlie Herbert

Daniel Levy is rumoured to be wanting £150 million for the England striker.

Remember when Guardiola said it would be “impossible” for Man City to sign a striker to replace Aguero because they were all too expensive?

Well, after splashing a moderate £100m on Jack Grealish, they are now reported to have offered Tottenham another huge cash offer – plus a player – for Harry Kane.

The reigning Premier League champions have got their sights set on the England man now, but are not willing to meet Daniel Levy’s massive £150 million asking price for Kane.

Instead, City are reportedly willing to offer Bernardo Silva to Spurs as part of a deal for Kane. They are reportedly not prepared to pay more than £130 million for the striker but are considering including Silva in any possible switch.

The Portuguese international is rumoured to be looking to leave the Etihad after struggling for game time last season. Grealish’s arrival has not convinced him he will be getting any more starts this season.

Kane has stated his desire to leave Tottenham in recent months, and caused a storm last week when he didn’t appear at training for the club.

However, the 28-year-old later released a statement in which he categorically denied ever refusing to train for the club.

He rejoined his teammates for training on Saturday, five days after he was reportedly due to return to the club.

City have already bid £100m for Kane, but if there is any owner in the Premier League who will refuse to budge on their valuation of a player, it’s Daniel Levy.
