Yet another day, yet another juicy piece of transfer gossip for Manchester City fans as the chase to sign Harry Kane has taken yet another twist.
It’s a well-renowned fact that landing Kane will be anything but a piece of cake given his lengthy contract and Tottenham Hotspurs’ reluctance to part ways with their prized asset.
As a consequence, Manchester City are now reportedly planning for alternatives should they fail to sign Kane in the upcoming months. Two players who are currently top of City executives’ wishlist are Bayern Munich ace Robert Lewandowski and Inter Milan’s Romelu Lukaku.

Manchester City eye Robert Lewandowski and Romelu Lukaku as ‘Plan B’
According to Calciomercato Lukaku is the latest big name to end up on City’s transfer wishlist, which also features Harry Kane and Jack Grealish. The Cityzens are trying hard to land those two, however, they have also put plans in place should they fail in their pursuit.
Inter Milan hitman Romelu Lukaku and Robert Lewandowski will be looked upon in the next few weeks, and it’s interesting this latest report from Calciomercato because earlier this week, Inter CEO Beppe Moratta deemed Lukaku as ‘not transferable’.
He said, “From our side, we can yes absolutely, Lukaku is not for sale. Lukaku is an important piece on the chessboard available to Simone Inzaghi,” per Daily Mail.
Only a bid in the region of €100m could tempt Inter to part ways with the Belgian striker who has been in terrific form since signing for the Nerazzurri.
On the other hand, Lewandowski, 32, is currently having the best time of his life, and would be a decent addition, should Bayern decided to cash in on the veteran forward.
The Polish skipper still has two years remaining on his current deal, and it remains to be seen whether he would be open to the adventure called the Premier League.
Nonetheless, Manchester City are doing their part by putting plans in place should they fail to sign Harry Kane, and if either Lukaku or Lewandowski do end up signing for the Etihad outfit then will be a major coup, in all honesty.
