Manchester City handed a huge blow in pursuit of their number one target.

Manchester City handed a huge blow in pursuit of their number one target.

Manchester City could be handed a huge blow in their chase of Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane, as the North London club close in on the signing of a world-renowned manager to take over from Jose Mourinho.

All reports seem now to point towards the possibility of Tottenham achieving the signing of former Inter Milan manager Antonio Conte as their next club’s manager.

And with an allurement signing like that, Tottenham’s star players could have more reason to stick around.

Manchester City are supposed to have Harry Kane as their number one target to succeed the recently departed Sergio Aguero – who left as the club’s all-time leading goal scorer.

According to the Manchester Evening News’ Stuart Brennan, Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola is a long-time enthusiast of the Tottenham star, after seeing plenty of him during his six seasons in English football.

And while some have had reservations, Harry Kane’s age profile is not a concern for the club, according to the report – he looks after himself well and has at least another four or five years left at the highest level.

However, a potential stumbling block could come through the difference in costs of the player at the London club and up in Manchester. 

Brennan reveals that Manchester City’s estimate of the England international is around £100 million, while those at Tottenham value the striker at £150 million.

While at Tottenham, according to the Guardian’s David Hytner, club chairman Daniel Levy has made it obvious within that he will not tolerate the sale of Harry Kane, who has three years to run on his deal.

The signing of the Italian administrator could help turn Harry Kane to give up and the ongoing struggle to force his way out of the club.

Conte is on record as declaring his love for Kane, describing him in 2017 as his “dream striker” and “one of the best in the world”. At the time, he said, “If I had to buy one striker, I would go to Kane. He is a complete striker.”
