Tottenham officials have Harry Kane expectation as Man City prepare new £127m transfer bid
Harry Kane is set to stay at Tottenham for another year, regardless of Manchester City’s plans to bid £127million for the striker, according to reports. City are desperate to sign the England captain, but Tottenham are adamant he’ll be going nowhere.
Tottenham are set to keep hold of their star man despite heavy interest from elsewhere.
The striker, who has three years left to run on his current deal, is eager to move on from the club this summer.
Kane wants to win trophies, and that is much more likely at the Etihad with Premier League champions City.
He is said to believe he has a gentleman’s agreement with Spurs chief Daniel Levy allowing him to depart this summer.
But Spurs officials are adamant no such deal exists, and as a result he’ll be staying put.
Despite seemingly having his dream move blocked, Kane isn’t expected to kick up a fuss.
He will be available to play against his potential future employer on Sunday.
And according to The Times, Spurs aren’t concerned about his commitment to the club if he ends up staying for another year.
The same report claims Spurs are much more likely to allow him to leave in a year’s time, when he will have two years left to run on his contract.
City aren’t looking at any alternatives, and it’s unlikely they’ll go out and sign a big-money or big-name striker this summer if they can’t get Kane.
As a result, their interest will likely still be there in a year’s time, when they will have a fresh transfer budget to play with as well.
City forked out a British transfer record fee to sign Jack Grealish from Aston Villa already this summer, spending £100m on the Villa star.
As a result, they’re currently unwilling to come close to Spurs’ valuation of Kane – a fee in the region of £150-160m.
Instead, they’re said to be preparing a new bid of £127m.
They are, however, willing to include add-ons or additional payments to help get Spurs’ asking price down somewhat.
But instead, Spurs are set to wait a year before allowing Kane to head to Manchester.
