A new bid allegedly delivered by Manchester City for Harry Kane’s transfer has been recently revealed and we have all the details. 

A few weeks ago, Khaldoon Al Mubarak hinted at the possibility of signing a player like Harry Kane for Manchester City this summer. The plan is to find the ideal Sergio Aguero replacement and the Citizens think of Harry as the best option. Today, an alleged official bid has been revealed by various sources. However, Fabrizio Romano is the one who broke the news about the offer that we are about to break down. Even though Harry is currently quite occupied with the Euros for England, there has been a lot of transfer activity today. The Citizens want to make sure they have Aguero’s replacement well before the official new season starts.

Kane is obviously the number one option but they do have other names on a shortlist, just in case this initial plan falls off the rails. We already know Harry wants to leave Tottenham Hotspur but Daniel Levy is a tough negotiator. In previous seasons, we’ve seen other clubs suffer tremendously when they attempted to get Spurs’ players from Levy. Real Madrid really struggled to convince him of selling Luke Modric and Gareth Bale. Given that Kane is a homegrown player, the Spurs will do everything in their power to keep him. 

What is Manchester City offering? 

According to Romano, Manchester City already sent an official £100 million bid with some interesting additional perks. The Citizens confirm that is a clean bid that won’t move but they are also willing to offer other players inside the negotiation. Names like Sterling, Laporte, or Gabriel Jesus are being thrown into the mix. There is only one problem: Tottenham’s initial response has been a resounding NO. However, nothing will be final until after the Euro 2020 is finished for the England National Team.

In the meantime, Harry Kane is only worried about finishing the summer tournament in the best possible manner. This would be the highest ever bid Manchester City has made for a single player. It is now clear they consider Kane a crucial part of their plans for the immediate future. Could we see Pep Guardiola coaching one of the best English strikers of the last 20 years? Can they convince Tottenham Hotspur to let him leave the club in North London?
