Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane’s move to Manchester City could be ‘imminent’ with the Premier League champions ready to match his £150million valuation, according to Sky Sports. Daniel Levy could bow down to Man City’s financial power if the club meet his hefty transfer demands this month.
Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol believes Kane’s record transfer to the Etihad Stadium is on the verge of completion.
He claims Man City have increased their offer to £150m, reported elsewhere as Levy’s valuation of the 28-year-old striker.
The Independent report that £150m would be enough to lure Levy to the negotiation table for Kane.
The Tottenham chairman would likely seek to include add-ons in any deal for his most-prized asset, so there would still be work to do.
The performance and lack of a natural striker from the get-go will have only ignited Pep Guardiola’s burning desire for further financial backing.
If Kane were to join Man City in the final two weeks of the summer window, it would break the British transfer record again.
In fact, it wouldn’t break it, but it would absolutely smash it given a fee for the England captain could realistically rise to over £160m.
The £89m Manchester United paid Juventus for Paul Pogba in 2016 was the record going into the current window.
With Romelu Lukaku’s £97.5m to Chelsea also going through this month, though, Kane’s ‘imminent’ move to Manchester would surpass that for the third time.
