Manchester City have been linked with Harry Kane and it is no secret as the player himself is in favor of a move to City this summer. Having said that, it is not going to be easy for the newly-crowned Premier League champions.
Kane, 27, is a prized asset for Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy and Tottenham’s chances of winning any silverware with the current set-up is at its best with Harry Kane leading the line.

Having said that, Levy is not in favor of letting his main man leave, especially since Kane is contracted at Spurs until 2024. He has made his intentions of keeping the Englishman clear by slapping a £150 million price tag on Kane.
City are said to be leading the race to sign the 27-year-old and in what appears to be the latest twist in this transfer saga, The Sun understands that City are willing to offer Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling in a bid to convince Tottenham to part ways with their record goal-scorer.
Sterling, 26, has been linked with a move away from the Etihad Stadium as he has fallen down the pecking order with Phil Foden taking his place in the XI. Sterling, however, remains one of the very best players in the Premier League and finished the season with 15 goals this year.
Gabriel Jesus, 24, has been linked with a departure this summer as well. The Brazilian is said to be on the list of the players at City who are not happy with their current roles. Jesus was hardly employed in the big games and that is something that hasn’t gone down well with the 24-year-old, as per reports.
While there is a realistic possibility of Kane joining City this summer, it remains to be seen if offering both Sterling and Gabriel Jesus to Spurs is the right decision.
Perhaps, one other alternative is that Jesus could be given one last chance but he would be playing as the frontline striker next season as, after all, the Brazilian was brought in to be the long-term replacement of Sergio Aguero.
Do you think Jesus deserves another shot or should City go all-out for Harry Kane?
