Manchester City’s interest in Harry Kane is well-documented and it is no secret that the Premier League champions are looking at Kane to replace City club legend, Sergio Aguero.
Manchester City have lost a pure goal scorer in Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus is now the sole striker in the squad. It is clear that Pep Guardiola does not trust the Brazilian and hence, is looking at Harry Kane to help him win his first UEFA Champions League title with Manchester City and his first-ever since he left Barcelona.

Kane has been linked with a move to the Etihad in recent times and that is largely attributed to the lack of silverware at Tottenham. While Kane has done almost everything in his power to help the Lillywhites win a major trophy, it just hasn’t clicked for Spurs.
Reports emerging from the White Hart Lane a few weeks back made it clear that Harry Kane wants to leave Tottenham though the player did not submit an official transfer request. Kane is said to be unhappy with the direction that Spurs are headed in, with the Lillywhites missing out on a UEFA Champions League spot last season. Spurs barely qualified for the inaugural UEFA Continental cup but it is likely to remain a consolation prize for Harry Kane who perhaps, enjoyed his best-ever season as a football player last season.
The 27-year-old notched up 23 goals and supplied on 14 occasions in the Premier League last season.
Manchester City recently had a £100 million bid for Harry Kane shot down by Spurs who are said to be demanding £150 million to secure the services of the English striker. Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is not said to be in favor of selling Harry Kane this summer, let alone the idea of selling his most prized asset to a direct rival.
Speaking to Gianluca Di Marzio (h/t Fabrizio Romano on Twitter), newly appointed Tottenham director of football, Fabio Paratici disclosed Spurs’ intention of keeping Harry Kane for the next season with that being their current goal.
"“We want to keep Harry Kane at Tottenham, it’s our goal. I’ve been lucky to see many top players at Juventus and I want to enjoy Harry Kane too. He’s one of the best strikers in the world”, said Fabio Paratici.Source: Twitter"
While this certainly does not do any good for the Cityzens, it is unlikely that they are going to sign Harry Kane this summer. With the English striker tied down with Spurs until 2024, it is tough to see him leaving anytime soon unless he forces his way out of the club.
