Harry Kane’s deal to Man City is expected to be completed on deadline day, according to Dimitar Berbatov.
This summer, Harry Kane has been widely linked with a move away from Tottenham.
Former Tottenham striker Dimitar Berbatov believes Harry Kane’s transfer odyssey will finish on deadline day, much like his own did when he moved to Manchester United in 2008. Despite strong ties to Man City, the England captain has failed to report back for pre-season training.
Kane has missed a number of days of training this week in attempt to force a departure from the club.
Earlier this summer, the 28-year-old revealed his intention to leave north London in quest of trophies.
Chairman Daniel Levy, on the other hand, has chosen to make life difficult for the Spurs star by attaching an exorbitant £150 million price tag to him.
Until now, it has worked to keep City from making a serious move, but Kane’s extreme approach may compel Levy to reconsider.
Chelsea’s transfer boss Marina Granovskaia is drafting a revised £110 million proposal for Romelu Lukaku.
“I am not certain that the transaction will happen until the near end of the transfer window,” Berbatov, who was excellent for Spurs between 2006 and 2008, told Betfair.
“I anticipate it being postponed until the last possible time. After what happened in 2008, I don’t want it to happen again, and I’d prefer the deal to happen as soon as feasible.
“I was still in London on deadline day 2008, and my agent went to meet Levy.
“I needed to sleep in the afternoon because I was so mentally fatigued from everything that had happened.
Despite the Man City transfer drama, Tottenham is contemplating a bid for a potential £50 million Harry Kane partner. With a swap agreement offer, Arsenal has opened bidding for James Maddison. Before Liverpool offered Paul Pogba, Mino Raiola dubbed Jurgen Klopp a ‘piece of s***.’
“I had a dream that I travelled to Manchester and made my United debut while sleeping.
“My agent called when I awoke. ‘Wake up and get ready, we’re flying to Manchester,’ he added.
“We boarded the plane, I signed the contract with seconds to spare before the deadline, and the rest is history,” says the author.
Spurs would definitely hope that Kane’s departure does not follow the same path as Berbatov’s, since it would leave them with a similar situation. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
