Harry Kane wants a move to Manchester City in trophy pursuit

19 May 2021 02:00

Tottenham star Harry Kane has told his boyhood club he wants to leave in the summer and believes a move to Manchester City would guarantee him the best chance of winning trophies.

The 27-year-old is a Spurs legend, having scored over 200 goals in eight seasons at the club. But supporters were rocked by recent developments in which he told chairman Daniel Levy he is ready for a new challenge and wants to be sold in the summer.

The Mirror reports that Kane has his sights set on a move to Premier League champions Man City. The prolific forward is desperate to win trophies during his career, having failed to do so with Spurs thus far, and a move to the Etihad Stadium would undoubtedly give him the best opportunity to fill his trophy cabinet.

The Citizens are one of a select number of realistic destinations for Kane in the summer, as Spurs are unlikely to accept any bids south of £100m for their homegrown talisman.

He also has another three years remaining on his current contract, so they will feel little rush or pressure to sell him in the upcoming transfer window.

Man City are favourites to land Kane as they are known to be in the market for a new striker this summer, with club legend Sergio Aguero leaving on a free transfer at the end of the season. The England captain 'believes' Pep Guardiola and co will follow up their interest with a bid, which may force Spurs into making a difficult decision.

Spurs are annoyed at the timing of Kane's announcement as it could cause disruption ahead of the final games of the season, in which the north London side are still hoping to clinch Europa League football.

Chairman Levy remains reluctant to sell Kane to any direct rivals in England and would prefer to see him move abroad than to one of the Premier League's giants, with the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea circling.
