The transfer saga surrounding Tottenham’s Harry Kane and Manchester City refuses to die out as the links between Kane and City only seem to grow.
Kane, 27, has established himself as one of the best marksmen in Europe and has got some really impressive numbers to back his case. The Englishman however, is yet to win a single major trophy with his boyhood club in Tottenham Hotspur and is evidently frustrated by the lack of silverware at the White Hart Lane.

While City remain interested in signing the England skipper, Tottenham are firm on their stance of not letting their main man leave this summer. Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is not said to be a fan of selling his most prized asset, let alone selling him to a direct rival.
Daily Mail understands that Tottenham owner Joe Lewis is ‘at odds’ with the 27-year-old and is unlikely to be backed into selling Kane this summer. The source further adds that the relationship between Levy and Kane are strained despite the striker disclosing that his future was up to him and he had a ‘gentleman’s agreement’ with Levy.
It is believed that both Levy and Lewis are upset with the way Kane has gone about disclosing his plans for the future. While the striker hasn’t submitted an official transfer request, he pretty much made it clear in an interview with Gary Neville about his desire to compete for major trophies on a more consistent basis, indicating that his time at Tottenham was close to coming to an anticlimactic end.
Only last week, there were reports indicating that Spurs would be inclined to sell Kane if a fee in the range of £160 million was offered but the Premier League champions have made it clear that they are not willing to that kind of a sum for Kane, strongly suggesting that they have alternatives in place, in case their pursuit of Harry Kane fails.
Manchester City will sign a striker this summer but the only question is who. Many pundits believe that Kane joining City is not a matter of ‘if’ but a matter of ‘when’.
