Chris Sutton says Premier League manager will want to sign Tottenham striker Harry Kane
Chris Sutton has claimed he expects Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola to make a bid to sign Tottenham’s Harry Kane this summer.
Sky Sports claimed on Monday that Kane has informed Spurs he wants to leave them at the end of the season.
It is understood that Man City, Manchester United and Chelsea have all been in touch with the 27-year-old’s representatives to express their interest in signing him.
The England captain reportedly wants his future resolved before next month’s European Championships, and he would prefer to stay in the Premier League as he hunts down Alan Shearer’s goalscoring record.
Additionally, the Independent claims that the striker could cost as much as £150million to sign.
BBC pundit Sutton is adamant that Man City are going to step up interest in him.
50-year-old Spanish boss Guardiola is regarded by many as the best manager around, recently securing the Premier League title at the Etihad Stadium.
“I think he’d be a great fit for Manchester City in the way that they play… I’d be shocked if Pep didn’t go for him,” Sutton told BBC Radio 5 Live Sport.
If Kane wants to go chasing silverware next season, then Man City could be his best bet.
Nobody should begrudge Kane a move away from Spurs if he does end up leaving north London, as he’s given so much to them since coming through the academy.
It’s mad that the centre-forward has no trophies to along with his individual record of 22o goals in 334 Spurs appearances.
The opportunity to work under Spanish tactician Guardiola should appeal to most across the world, and Man City could become even more of an unstoppable force if they have Kane within their ranks next season.
