Tottenham’s Chairman Daniel Levy has reportedly given Manchester City the go-ahead to sign Tottenham Hotspur’s superstar Harry Kane for a British record of £160 million.
Harry Kane had earlier expressed his intentions to leave the North London club in search of trophies and other club accolades, but reports suggested that Levy was adamant in his refusal to let the England captain go.
As mentioned on betpack.com, City made an opening bid of £100 million for Harry Kane before the Euros. Tottenham Hotspur reportedly rejected the proposal.
However, the latest reports claim Daniel Levy has changed his mind about keeping Kane and has decided to let the striker go to Manchester City. Kane’s potential move could see City pay a Premier League record fee of £160 million.
Should this deal be done, Harry Kane will get his wish and earn £400,000 weekly in the process. This is almost double the amount the striker currently makes in North London.
The addition of Harry Kane to Manchester City’s talented squad would see their odds of winning the Champions League and retaining their Premier League crown this season soar with bookmakers.
Kane, whod his senior career at Tottenham Hotspur in 2009, has gathered many individual accolades in the last decade. He has won the Premier League golden boot on several occasions. he was also the top scorer at the 2018 FIFA World Cup
The 27-year-old has won many personal accolades but has no team achievement to his name yet. He got close to winning the Carabao Cup twice and lost a Champions League final with Tottenham. He was also close to winning the EURO 2020 tournament with England but lost to Italy in the final.
The search for team honours is what keeps Kane’s hunger alive. The English striker believes this can be achieved outside the North London club.
Tottenham had difficulties replacing Jose Mourinho this summer but eventually appointed former Wolves’ coach Nuno Espírito Santo.
The Portuguese coach in a press conference last month emphasized the importance of Harry Kane for Tottenham. He also showed his willingness to discuss with the unsettled striker.
On the other hand, Manchester City let their legendary striker Sergio Aguero leave for free to Barcelona at the end of last season. Pep Guardiola was also interviewed in tears speaking highly of Aguero, saying no striker can replace him at the club.
