'It's done': Gary Neville says Manchester City win the league with Harry Kane

Manchester City would cruise to the Premier League title with Harry Kane upfront this season, according to Sky Sports pundit and ex-Manchester United star, Gary Neville.

City pursued Kane all summer long but were ultimately unsuccessful in their attempts to bring the Tottenham star into the club. Since then, Kane has struggled for form under Nuno Santo, albeit he did hit a hat-trick in the Europa Conference League.

And after drawing 2-2 with Liverpool yesterday, Neville told Sky Sports that if City had indeed got Harry Kane, then things would be quite different.

If Manchester City had Harry Kane, I’m telling you now, then this league is done. It’s done. Forget his form at Spurs, the league would be done,” Neville commented.

“Him out there on that pitch today among that group of players is taking a chance. He’s scoring a goal. If he’s in there, I remove that doubt I have about Manchester City.”

City have been playing with six midfielders for most of this season, with even Gabriel Jesus playing in a wide role. Pep Guardiola, it seems, intent on making do without a proper number nine for now.

TBR’s View: Neville bang on about City and Kane

It’s a pretty obvious take from Neville this and one he admits everyone knows about, but he is spot on. City cruise to the title with Harry Kane, there’s just no question about it.

City have so much of the ball, create so many half chances, that someone in Kane’s mold will take some of those chances.

We all know Daniel Levy wouldn’t sell. But the reality is City should have just paid the money. Neville is right, it could end up costing Guardiola’s side this season at some point.
