Manchester City key target Harry Kane has claimed that he still holds ambitions to play at the highest level despite a failed transfer pursuit from the Cityzens previous summer, as Tottenham refused to part ways with their main man, MEN understands.
Kane, 28, has had a terrible start to this season scoring a solitary goal in the first nine matches under former manager Nuno Espirito Santo. However, the English skipper has regained his goal-scoring form under Antonio Conte notching a G/A of 6 in his last 10 outings for the Spurs in the Premier League.
In a recent interview with Sky Sports, Harry Kane spoke about his hopes for the future that
"“I just want to be playing at the highest level possible. My focus is fully on this season and trying to get as high up the league as possible.”“We are still in the FA Cup and are trying to win a trophy as it is every year. I am not going to go into loads of detail about anything else going on. It is just about working hard for the team and trying to improve as I know I can and score more goals than I have this season. That’s where my focus is on this season and trying to make it the best one possible.”"
The English skipper does hint about his plans for the future, suggesting that his intentions of winning silverware remain as strong as ever and doesn’t mention any potential contract extension with the Spurs. A move to Manchester City may be on the cards if Guardiola does require Kane’s services despite his drop in form in comparison to the last season.
The defending champions have been outstanding this season even without a proper nine in their ranks with Guardiola’s false nine strategy paying dividends time and again. The league leaders are 9 points clear of 2nd placed Liverpool and 10 points clear of 3rd placed Chelsea, looking on course for a second Premier League title on the trot.
Pep has admitted the fact that Manchester City would sign a striker sooner than later, with the likes of Erling Haaland and Dusan Vlahovic shortlisted. The 51-year-old has been proactive in his pursuit of strikers and seems to have learned his lesson after the Skyblues landed on the wrong side of the Harry Kane transfer saga last summer.
The Cityzens may be looking at Kane as an alternate option if the Summer window doesn’t go according to plan. However, Tottenham’s demands for the striker which may be well above the €100 million mark would make his move to the Etihad unlikely especially after the 28-year-old looking out of sorts this season.
Will Harry Kane join Manchester City?
Let us know.
