Harry Kane is said to be right up on the priority list of Manchester City for this summer. The 27-year-old has been linked with a move to the Etihad Stadium for quite some time and numerous reports suggest that it could finally happen this summer despite Daniel Levy, the chairman of Tottenham Hotspur said to be adamant on his stance of not selling his prized asset to immediate rivals.

Harry Kane is said to be valued at £150 million which is a huge fee but the 27-year-old has shown that he has the potential to be the best striker in the world, having established himself as the best striker in England currently.
Kane has got some impressive numbers to back his case, but the England international has no silverware to show for his talent and stats. Having said that, the 27-year-old though did not hand in an official transfer request, made it clear that he is not happy with the Lillywhites, after they lost yet another final in the Carabao Cup, against Manchester City.
Former City midfielder Nigel De Jong believes that Harry Kane will have an easy transition into Pep Guardiola’s system which employs a false nine more often than not.
Kane has got all the ingredients to succeed under Pep Guardiola. Needless to say, his chance of winning trophies consistently is very high if he chooses to play under Pep Guardiola. Of course, that is subject to a deal being reached between Spurs and City, and at the moment, that looks like a distant possibility, especially after Spurs rejected City’s opening bid of £100 million for the striker.
Speaking about Harry Kane and a rumored switch to Manchester City for the 27-year-old, De Jong said:
"“But of course Harry Kane is a great player for City and also in the Premier League. He knows the Premier League, he has experience in the Premier League.I think he will slot right in in that squad, but nothing is done yet.“This is all speculation and rumour and so on, so we just have to wait to see what the owners are going to do.Source: Football London"
Harry Kane to Manchester City certainly seems eye-watering on paper but it remains to be seen how long Tottenham can keep their main man. In all likelihood, Kane might very well play at Spurs next season but should the trophy drought continue for the Lillywhites next season as well, Kane will leave the club next summer.
