Manchester City are determined to ‘outbid’ Manchester United in the race to sign Harry Kane from Tottenham.
Kane has expressed a desire to leave Spurs this summer in search of silverware with a trio of Premier League clubs interested in signing the England captain, both Manchester sides and Chelsea all interested in a big-money deal.
Spurs are reluctant to lose the 27-year-old who is the joint-leading scorer in the Premier League this season, whilst the north Londoners are in a strong negotiating position given Kane has three years remaining on his contract.
Recent reports have suggested that Spurs will demand a fee of around £150m for Kane, with the Daily Star reporting that City are frontrunners and prepared to outbid any rival suitors as the champions seek a replacement for Sergio Aguero.
City’s current transfer record stands at less than £65m, a figure they will likely have to double at least to secure the signing of Kane from Spurs this summer.
Kane recently spoke to Gary Neville on his career ambitions and spoke openly of his desire to be the best and play in the sport’s biggest games, admitting he had reached a crossroads in his career with the star yet to win a major trophy to date.
Kane could play his final fixture for Spurs against Leicester on the Premier League’s final day this Sunday, the star seeking to pip Mohamed Salah to win a third career Golden Boot accolade.
