Tottenham Hotspur chairman, Daniel Levy has reportedly given his blessings for Harry Kane to join English rivals, Manchester City in a potential British record transfer. The hard-negotiating chairman has finally conceded to losing the club’s record goalscorer this summer.
Thus, Manchester City is prepared to move in with a transfer worth in the region of £160m for the striker who has hit double figures consistently since he made his debut at Tottenham. Any deal for Kane is certain to break the British transfer record currently held by Paul Pogba at £89m in 2016.
The England captain is also expected to be given a significant pay rise in the region of £400,000 per week. This would make him the highest-paid player in the Premier League.
Guardiola is looking at refreshing his striking options in the wake of the Citizens club-record goal scorer, Sergio Aguero leaving the Etihad for Barcelona during this summer window. Harry Kane is expected to immediately displace Gabriel Jesus and become the first-choice striker for the defending champions of England.
