It is a well known fact that Harry Kane was the prime target for Manchester City this past summer window but Tottenham Hotspur’s insistence to keep ahold of their main man meant that City would not get their hands on the Englishman, despite launching three massive bids for him.
It seems that a deal might be possible for the Cityzens this winter, after all. Tottenham have struggled massively this season and are six points clear of Liverpool who are currently fourth in the standings. Having said that, Spurs have been able to score only nine times this season, the second-lowest after Norwich City.
Tottenham’s dry run of less than a goal a game is largely due to Harry Kane’s poor form and inconsistency this season.
The 29-year-old has been linked with a move to defending Premier League champions once again as he is said to have a ‘gentleman’s agreement’ in place with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy for a winter switch to the Sky Blues.
Familiar waters right?
For City though, they would not mind having Harry Kane at the club as the Englishman would be the final piece in the Pep Guardiola jigsaw. The only fact to consider for the reigning champions would be the price tag that the Lillywhites would look to place on the 29-year-old.
Spurs’ valuation of €200 million proved a little too much for the Cityzens who obviously were not on the same page as their PL rivals on that front.
With his poor form, there is some consensus that perhaps, a compromise can be reached with the Lillywhites chairman who was desperate to keep the English star at the club for the ongoing season.
With Borussia Dortmund goal-machine Erling Haaland set to become available for €75 million next term, Pep Guardiola has been faced with a difficult decision to make as City’s performance in front of the goal could well decide how far they would go this season.
It will all depend on whether Pep Guardiola believes that his squad has enough fuel in the tank to perhaps win the Premier League title or the UEFA Champions League or both.
Do you think Manchester City is past the Harry Kane flag or will they look to test the resolve of Tottenham Hotspurs once again, this winter?
Let us know.
