RUMOR: Harry Kane given the green light to join Man City in record-breaking deal
Is Harry Kane finally heading to Man City? Well, according to the Sun, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has changed his stance and will allow his talisman to leave for the Premier League champions.
Kane has been heavily linked with Pep Guardiola’s side for the last two months after he publically made it known that he wanted to leave Spurs. But, the North Londoners turned down £100 million for the England star. Now, it’s believed they’ve come to a £160 million agreement, with Kane set to make a record 400,000 per week.
If this is indeed true, this will be the most expensive British transfer ever, smashing Paul Pogba’s £89 million move from Juventus to Man United in 2016. It’s believed that it’s a four or five-year contract with Man City for Kane.
This does seem a little bit odd though after Guardiola said earlier this month there was no way the club has the funds to buy a striker this summer. But, when Harry Kane becomes available, you pounce.
The 27-year-old led England’s top flight last term with 23 goals and 14 assists. If this deal does go through, he will undoubtedly be a tremendous addition to an already dangerous Man City side who will be looking to repeat as Premier League champions in 2021/22.
