Tottenham responds to Man City’s £160 million proposal for Harry Kane with a firm stance.
Manchester City appear to be making progress in their pursuit of Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane.
Spurs have reacted to Manchester City’s reported £160 million offer for Harry Kane. After becoming bored of not being able to compete for trophies, the England captain stated in May that he wanted to quit Spurs.
Kane is still regarded as one of the top strikers in the world, and this drew the interest of clubs all across Europe.
City appear to be leading the battle for his signature, with claims surfacing on Friday that they have approached Tottenham with a £160 million proposal.
Pep Guardiola is desperate to replace Sergio Aguero, and Kane would be an ideal option after scoring 33 goals and assisting 17 times in all competitions last season.
According to the Sun, Daniel Levy has granted his approval for Kane to join City on a £400,000-a-week deal.
According to reports, Levy eventually gave in to Kane’s aspirations to leave Tottenham, despite the club’s inability to compete for trophies as often as he desires.
Football London, on the other hand, now claims that Levy has given no hint that he is willing to sell Kane.
According to the report, Tottenham’s attitude on selling Kane has remained unchanged throughout the summer.
Nuno Espirito Santo has yet to meet with Kane since taking over as Tottenham manager, as the striker is still on vacation.
However, the Portuguese coach is certain that he will be able to persuade Kane to stay in north London for the coming season.
He stated, “I have no doubts in my mind.”
“All I want for Harry is for him to heal quickly and rest comfortably.
“When he arrives, he will feel compelled to dedicate himself to improving himself. We are ambitious, and we expect Harry to help us achieve our goals.
“Harry is our player, end of story. There is no need to discuss anything else at this time. It’s time for him to take a break.
“When he gets back, we can have a good talk. I am excited for him to join the group.”
Spurs, meanwhile, are aiming to enhance their defensive options this summer, and a deal for Cristian Romero appears to be close.
According to recent sources, Tottenham manager Fabio Paratici has made the Argentina international his main target, and talks are now underway.
