Manchester City are apparently close to a breakthrough in their pursuit of Harry Kane with Tottenham prepared to sell the forward in a record-breaking £160m deal.
Kane has informed the north London side of his desire to leave this summer in search of elusive silverware, with Manchester City the front runners to sign the England captain in a huge deal.
The 27-year-old has three years remaining on his current contract and Spurs are in a strong negotiating position, though the reported stance of chairman Daniel Levy has been that the club’s talisman is not for sale.
The Sun, however, appear to think differently and are reporting that Levy has done a notable U-turn, allegedly shaking hands with Kane on a move to the Etihad and waving goodbye to the star with best wishes – so long as City stump up a staggering £160m.
City saw an offer in the region of £100m rejected for the three-time Golden Boot winner earlier this summer, but a figure of £160m seems a huge leap at the negotiation table.
The report states that Kane received a call from Levy last week revealing his willingness to strike a deal with the forward set to sign a deal worth £400,000-a-week at the Premier League champions.
However, if there’s one thing we’ve learned about Daniel Levy and his negotiations at Tottenham, this alleged ‘deal’ will not be as straightforward as The Sun would have you believe.
