It is shaping up to be the transfer saga of the summer, Harry Kane’s future at Spurs remaining unresolved with just two weeks of the transfer window remaining.
The striker has let his feelings be known that he wants to quit Tottenham this summer, with Manchester City the side most strongly linked with him as they look to add an out-and-out goalscorer to their stacked creative side.
City have already seen a bid of £100 million knocked back, and while Spurs have said that the striker is not for sale, it has been widely reported that they would sell if they were to receive a bid of £150m.
The transfer window is due to close on August 31st, and according to Fabrizio Romano, City are not giving up on the England skipper, and are preparing a new offer of around €150m (£127m), the Italian journalist describing it as a ‘poker game’ between the two sides.
“The feeling is that Manchester City are not giving up,” he told Sky Sports. “They are not giving up on this deal and they want to try again.
“From what I’m told, they are preparing a new bid for €150 million to try again for Harry Kane.
“From Tottenham’s side, they don’t want to sell their striker, so I think we are in a poker game now with Daniel Levy on the Tottenham side, and Manchester City pushing.
“Let’s see what happens this week, but for sure, Manchester City are not giving up, they will try again.
“Harry wants to play Champions League football and that is why Man City want to push.”
Kane was left out of the side as Spurs beat City at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium on Sunday, officially due to a lack of fitness, though has been included in the 25 man squad for the UEFA Conference League qualifier against Pacos de Ferreira this week.
