Despite Tottenham Hotspur president Daniel Levy’s attitude, Man City believe in Harry Kane.
Manchester City are attempting to recruit Tottenham striker Harry Kane before the transfer deadline this month.
According to sources, Manchester City remain ‘confident’ that Tottenham attacker Harry Kane will join the club this summer. The 27-year-old is reportedly looking for a move away from north London, despite Spurs chairman Daniel Levy reportedly being tough on the newly-crowned Premier League champions in negotiations.
The 59-year-old is alleged to have turned down a £100 million approach for Kane, who made his long-awaited comeback to the club on Saturday.
He is presently undergoing physical therapy at Spurs Lodge as he prepares to return to full training ahead of the upcoming Premier League season.
According to reports, Levy is unwilling to entertain any more bids for Kane below £150 million, which might be bad news for City.
They’ve already spent £100 million on marquee signing Jack Grealish, who made his first appearance for the club in Saturday’s Community Shield defeat to Leicester City.
Despite Levy’s adamant opposition to a deal for Kane, it appears that City have not been discouraged and will not give up on their pursuit of his signing just yet.
According to the Evening Standard, those at the Etihad Stadium still believe Kane will join Manchester City before the transfer deadline this month.
According to the source, City has always expected negotiations with Levy to be slow-moving due to the Spurs chairman’s obstinacy.
Pep Guardiola and Txiki Begiristain, the director of football, are said to have dropped their interest in signing Lionel Messi in order to focus on Kane, indicating their ambition to get the attacker.
With just over a month until the summer window closes, City is prepared to keep pushing for the move once the new season begins.
The seven-time English champions are hopeful that Kane’s arrival would help to fill the vacuum left by Sergio Aguero’s free transfer to Barcelona back in May.
Guardiola recently expressed his desire to sign the Spurs forward in a public statement, but he also hinted that a deal would be difficult to pull through unless Levy is willing to compromise.
“He is a Tottenham Hotspur player,” according to the “Brinkwire Summary News.”
