One thing is clear for Manchester City: they cannot win the UEFA Champions League without a proper finisher.
For long, Manchester City have been touted to land Harry Kane from Tottenham but DDaniel Levy’s desire to persist with his £150 million valuation of the striker is proving to be a much bigger stumbling block for City than one would think.

With their initial offer worth £100 million being shot down by the Spurs, City have realized that they would need to match the £150 million price tag set by Levy if they are to convince him to part ways with his most prized asset this summer.
While the Premier League champions are tipped to make another official move this month, the chances of Harry Kane not playing for the Cityzens next season are very real and the Sky Blues understand that.
Consequently, the Cityzens are keeping an eye out to be prepared to sign other options in the market and as per an exclusive report from the Mail, City are keeping a close watch on Bayern Munich superstar, Robert Lewandowski’s contract situation.
Lewandowski, 32, is certainly not the youngest going around but his finishing skills are next to none. The Polish international is easily one of the best strikers in the game, if not the best.
With his experience and skill set, he is a perfect match for Pep Guardiola. With two years left in his current contract, the 32-year-old has not shown any intentions of renewing with the Bundesliga champions and which is why he could be on his way out of the club this summer.
Lewandowski is certainly a very good option for short-term gains but the Mail also claims that Harry Kane remains as the preferred target for the Cityzens with them also being linked with Erling Haaland, Joao Felix Lautaro Martinez, and Darwin Nunez.
While it is tough to see Manchester City matching the £150 million price tag set by Tottenham for Harry Kane, Lewandowski is a player who they could consider signing. Moreover, due to his age, it is highly likely that the Bavarians would demand a fee in the range of £50-60 million for the services of the Polish striker.
