Harry Kane and Jack Grealish both prefer a move to Manchester City this summer as Pep Guardiola plans ‘significant changes’ in the wake of the club’s Champions League final defeat.
Guardiola had been keen to refresh his squad even if Manchester City had emerged victorious from Saturday’s final with Chelsea, with the club looking for further ways to improve following a season that has yielded Premier League and League Cup success alongside a maiden European final appearance.
Amongst the club’s leading targets are Kane and Grealish, and both players are understood to prefer moves to the Etihad despite interest from elsewhere.
Kane has attracted attention from both Manchester United and Chelsea since announcing his desire to leave Tottenham in search of silverware this summer, whilst the former were also strongly linked with Grealish last summer before the Aston Villa captain penned a new long-term deal.
According to The Athletic, both players are interested in moving to City this summer, though the Premier League champions will need to sell in order to finance what would prove to be record-breaking transfers, from a club perspective at least.
Both Grealish and Kane are valued in excess of £100m by their respective sides, though the sales of players dissatisfied with their roles under Guardiola this season could raise significant funds.
Raheem Sterling, Aymeric Laporte and Gabriel Jesus are amongst the players concerned with their reduced roles during the 2020/21 campaign, whilst both Sergio Aguero and Eric Garcia are leaving on free transfers.
Finding clubs with the finances to sign those aforementioned names in the current market could prove difficult, however, and could prove the difference in whether City are able to conduct the business they would like during the summer window.
