Kane's mega-step is strained by a 2018 signing

Neither Manchester City nor Tottenham give their arm to twist: the 'Citizens' trust in signing the English and Daniel Levy will only negotiate from £ 150M.


Harry Kane's future is still up in the air, and it doesn't look like it's going to be resolved soon or easily. The Athletic have reported that the front page published by Britain's The Sun newspaper, which reported that Tottenham had agreed to sell Harry Kane to Manchester City for £ 160m, caught both teams by surprise. And it is that the positions of both Citizens and Spurs remain immovable.

On the one hand, Pep Guardiola's team trusts in power to the English striker throughout this transfer market and knows the player's desire to leave the London team, but only if the agreement is closed for a figure close to 100M of £. The Skyblues cannot afford to pay the figure published by The Sun. For his part, Daniel Levy, president of Tottenham, who affirms with certainty that Harry Kane will remain at the club next season, could start negotiating from £ 150M.

But from The Athletic they see the transfer very complex for one main reason: Harry Kane renewed his contract with Tottenham in 2018 for the next six seasons. That is, the British striker has three years remaining linked to Spurs, who would only let him out for a stratospheric offer. Although the deal between Kane and City could easily be resolved, negotiations between the Manchester and London clubs are far from being resolved before the season begins.

That is why both Nuno Espírito Santo and Daniel Levy, knowing that he plays with an advantage by using Kane's contract like ace up his sleeve, are confident in the continuity of their star. "Harry is our player, period", were the declarations of the new Portuguese coach of the Spurs. But if the Citizens have not yet given up on the signing of the English footballer, it is because they hope to reach an agreement with the footballer's owners.
