Tottenham have been touted to back down on a trade for Harry Kane, who is expected to end up at Manchester City.
Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has been tipped to finalise a move away from the club.
According to European football analyst and former Norway striker Jan Age Fjortoft, Tottenham striker Harry Kane will join Manchester City this summer. Kane has failed to return to Tottenham training amid suggestions that he wants to join Manchester City this summer. Following a lengthy break following Euro 2020, the England captain is due to return to Spurs later this week.
Kane expressed his desire to leave Tottenham earlier this year.
In his career, the 28-year-old has yet to win a major trophy.
Despite closing near on a £100 million deal to recruit Aston Villa star Jack Grealish, City are favourites to sign Kane.
Kane would most certainly be more expensive than Grealish, however Spurs have stated that he will not be sold at any price.
Fjortoft, on the other hand, believes a deal will be struck because Kane knows Spurs will not be able to deliver him with the trophy success he desires.
“You can see why Manchester City wants him if you look at his record,” Fjortoft told ESPN FC.
“When you look at Manchester City’s track record, you can see why Harry Kane wants to join them.
“He doesn’t have much time left to win titles, and as we can see from Tottenham’s current form, they won’t win any this season either.

“He wants to join Manchester City, and believe me when I say that this player will end up there.”
When asked if he had any doubts, Fjortoft said, “Absolutely [no doubt].” Because this is going to be a financial transaction. Harry Kane is well aware that this is his chance.
“It’s fair for us to agree or disagree on the means he’s employing to force that transition.
“I understand the Tottenham fans’ dissatisfaction with their captain.
“Not showing up for work is a difficult decision for Harry Kane, and he will be punished in some way.
“But, at the end of the day, becoming a Manchester City player next season will be his reward.”
Meanwhile, Jamie O’Hara, a former Tottenham midfielder, understands Kane’s desire to leave the north London club.
“He’s one of the best strikers,” O’Hara told talkSPORT. “Brinkwire Summary News.”
