Manchester City recently made an official £100 million bid for their long-term target in Harry Kane to Tottenham Hotspur with the probability of including the likes of Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling, and Aymeric Laporte in the deal.
Goal understands that Manchester City are set to include Gabriel Jesus as a part of the deal and the Brazilian will be used as a bargaining chip in the Premier League champions’ attempt to convince Tottenham to part ways with their prized asset.

Jesus, 24, hasn’t exactly shone at Manchester City and despite being given an ample number of chances last season, the Brazilian striker has failed to convince Pep Guardiola that he has what it takes to lead the City attack in the absence of Sergio Aguero.
Jesus was hardly started in the big games due to his inconsistency and many sources are claiming that the last season could well be Jesus’ last one in a Sky Blue shirt.
Daniel Levy, the chairman of Tottenham Hotspur is said to not be in favor of selling Harry Kane to an immediate rival, and the Lillywhites are in no hurry to sell the Englishman, given that his contract does not run out with the club until 2024. The 27-year-old signed a six-year deal with the Spurs back in 2018.
Harry Kane hasn’t yet submitted an official transfer request to Spurs and by the looks of it, the 27-year-old may be forced to stay at Spurs for another season.
Though it is understood that Kane’s future will only be decided after the completion of Euro 2020, Daniel Levy is expected to play hardball. The Tottenham chairman is said to be not in favor of selling Kane to an immediate rival.
It is unlikely that the English striker will force a move this summer but it remains to be seen what the player decides after the Euro 2020 and whether he manages to convince Tottenham to accept the bid.
