Fabrizio Romano shares new update on Manchester City pursuit of Tottenham striker Harry Kane, new fee
Fabrizio Romano says Manchester City are preparing a new offer worth £127million to sign Tottenham and England striker Harry Kane. The sage over the England skipper’s future continues to drag on – though he remains at Spurs. Romano says City are preparing a new offer for Kane.
Kane, 28, remains City’s top target after they brought in Villa skipper Jack Grealish for a British record of £100million. Now, they are looking to sign Kane – and break that record just days after the first record. But they will only bid £127million (€150million) if Tottenham alter their stance.
Currently, Daniel Levy will only sell Kane if his asking price of £150million is met. City have previously offered £100million plus the inclusion of players – as per The Athletic – but Spurs have rejected such a deal. Now, they are ready to increase their offer to an enormous £127million.
Can Manchester City finally get deal over the line for Tottenham favourite Kane?
While Manchester City are looking to compromise and sign Kane for a fee of £127million, the fact of the matter remains. Levy rates Kane at £150million, and will not sell him unless he receives such an offer – or one close to that. Of course, the near-£130million fee plus a player might tempt Spurs.
For Kane, it is a promising sign that City have the resources necessary to bring in the England skipper. But while it is an improved offer, it will still be below Levy’s asking price and therefore – it is unlikely Spurs will budge. You can expect to see Kane feature for Tottenham on Sunday.
