Manchester City, once again, have been linked with the two most talented players in the league, Harry Kane and Jack Grealish. And, whilst this is nothing new, with David Silva departing two seasons ago and Sergio Aguero now also in La Liga for next season, this time, it looks like City are circling Aston Villa and Tottenham Hotspur with intent and not just rumours.
Kane recorded what could be regarded as his most impressive season to date, scoring 23 goals and providing 14 assists in what was a turbulent season for Tottenham, but a sensational one for him. The three-time Golden Boot winner has consistently performed at an elite level in the Premier League over the last seven years, however, has no silverware to show for his world-class talent which is pushing him away.
Now, reports are suggesting that City have submitted a bid of £100m+ and players for Kane to Spurs. These players are told to be Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling, which may be the difference in him signing for City and not, because although a cash fee of that magnitude is promising for Daniel Levy himself and the club, Spurs might not be able to attract many players with it. This was shown when they sold Gareth Bale to Real Madrid for a world-record fee and brought in six players who did nothing, although, they did get Christian Eriksen, who was a star until he departed for Inter Milan.
Kane transfer odds to City are now at 10/11 and a move to Manchester United has grown to 8/1 and for him to stay at Spurs, he is priced at 13/8. Not much has moved on this report since, with Kane's mind on fully focused on Euro 2020, but things could pick up rapidly here, should England exit.
