Manchester City will not sign Harry Kane next summer

Manchester City will likely not pursue Harry Kane any longer. They will choose to look elsewhere at options to bolster their attack

The Citizens were strongly linked with the England captain over the summer. Pep Guardiola admitted that the Premier League champions were making an effort to acquire the striker.

A transfer fee could not be agreed between City and Spurs. Though, North London club had quoted a £160,000,000 price for the 28-year-old.

Kane’s decision pending

Harry Kane is yet to pen a new Tottenham contract – if Daniel Levy comes round to the idea of adding a release clause. The offer of a new deal was moved back following England’s loss at the Euro 2020 final.

For now, it is safe to say that Kane will be staying for the season. Avenues are open for fresh terms to be negotiated.

Spurs are not usually ones keen on inserting release clauses. However, Kane might be an exception to that rule if they find common ground on an acceptable valuation.

Centre-back Toby Alderweireld had a release clause in his contract. But that came as part of the deal when he arrived from Southampton.

Levy dislikes the concept behind release clauses. Kane, though, hopes to bargain his way through so interested clubs are aware of the figure to be triggered.

Manchester Kane, Six Sports
In need of improvement, Manchester City will abandon Kane and look at other options while the Englishman jostles with Spurs over a new contract

Guardiola’s side are unlikely to chase Kane next summer despite the club being keen on improving their options moving forward. Indeed, their focus is to identify attacking options, particularly with uncertainty over Bernardo Silva.

A name that continues to be linked is Mikel Oyarzabal. The 24-year-old’s name has been on the lips of fans and staff alike over the past couple of seasons.

Kane has 3 years left on his current deal at Tottenham. He has scored twice in four games at club level this term but is yet to register in three Premier League outings.
