Pep Guardiola has discussed Manchester City’s interest in signing Harry Kane and admits the forward’s future ‘depends on Tottenham’.
Man City are interested in signing Kane and saw a £100m offer rejected for the forward earlier this summer, with the 28-year-old having informed the north London side of his desire to leave in search of silverware.
Kane has so far refused to rejoin Spurs for pre-season training this week as he pushes for an exit, and Guardiola has now opened up on the interest from the Premier League champions.
Guardiola described Kane as an ‘extraordinary striker’ and confirmed City’s interest in his signing, but conceded their pursuit is ‘finished’ if Spurs choose not to negotiate regarding a player who has three years remaining on his contract.
“He’s a player for Tottenham Hotspur,” he told a press conference. “If Tottenham don’t want to negotiate, it’s finished.
“If they are open to negotiate, I think not just Man City, but many clubs in the world want to sign him – we are not an exception – but it depends on Tottenham.
“It’s different from Jack (Grealish). He had a release clause and he is different.
“Harry Kane is an exceptional, extraordinary striker – no doubts about that, of course, we are interested – but he is a Tottenham player and if they don’t want to negotiate there is nothing more to say.
“If they want to, we will try.”
