Kane appeared in a matchday squad for the first time this season for Tottenham Hotspur’s 1-0 victory away to Wolves last weekend as he came off the bench to play the final 18 minutes, but he failed to get on the scoresheet.
Do you think Harry Kane will be sold this month?
Man City have reportedly only launched one official bid this summer, which stood at £100 million – the same amount of money that they paid for Jack Grealish, which is likely partly why Spurs are demanding nearer the £150 million mark.
Romano spoke about where City are in their pursuit of Kane this summer.
“It’s getting complicated, because as you say, time will be key in the coming days to understand what’s going to happen and now it’s time to decide. Manchester City have this bid, from what I know, in place for €150 million for Harry Kane.
“So, they want to try and try again in the coming days, in the coming hours, but from Tottenham, the answer is always the same: they want to keep Harry Kane at the club and that’s why it’s getting really, really difficult now.”
TIF Thoughts on Kane’s future…
Tottenham have already splashed the cash this summer, spending over £60 million on Cristian Romero and Bryan Gil. This is accompanied by reports suggesting that they are set to move for Adama Traore, which could signal that they expect Man City to lodge a huge bid for their star striker in the remaining days of the window.
City will presumably need to beef up their opening £100 million bid if Daniel Levy is to even entertain talks of letting Kane go, but the need for a centre-forward may be too much for City to ignore as they operated with Ferran Torres as a striker and Gabriel Jesus as a winger against Norwich City as Pep Guardiola still searches for Sergio Aguero’s replacement.
