Man City shoot their £100 million shot at Tottenham star Harry Kane
Tottenham star Harry Kane might be busy trying to win a piece of hardware with England at Euro 2020, but that doesn’t mean teams aren’t vying for his services following the conclusion of the prestigious tournament.
Just last month, Kane announced that he wants to leave Spurs this summer in search of winning more trophies. Man City quickly emerged as a candidate and officially made a bid for the 27-year-old hitman on Monday for a preposterous amount, via Football Insider Fabrizio Romano:
Official bid already sent from Manchester City for Harry Kane. 🚨
– £100M guaranteed as fee.
– #MCFC available to include players in the deal.
– Sterling, Laporte, Gabriel Jesus among the names.
– #THFC have NO intention to accept this bid.
– Nothing decided during the Euros. https://t.co/AYint8nAQD

As you can see, City is willing to give up a lot for Harry Kane. Raheem Sterling, Aymeric Laporte, and Gabriel Jesus are all key players that the Citizens would be willing to part ways with in order to bring in the England international.
But, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy remains adamant about not letting his star striker leave North London. £100 million is a boatload of money, but Spurs value him at an even steeper cost.
It’s believed that Premier League giants Chelsea and Man United are also interested in Kane, who bagged a league-best 23 goals last term while also tallying 14 assists.
Harry Kane has struggled to find his form at Euro 2020, but there is no question that he is one of the finest strikers in world football. It’s going to be interesting to see where he ends up over the next month but the Englishman has made one thing crystal clear: Tottenham is no longer a club he wants to play for.
