Pep Guardiola hints a move for £150m Tottenham striker Harry Kane.

Manchester City are understood to be interested in contracting Tottenham’s Harry Kane in the summer transfer window.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has revealed that he would love to sign a world-class attacker this summer, firing speculation that the newly-crowned Premier League champions could go all out to land Tottenham’s wantaway striker Harry Kane.

The 27-year-old England Captian is understood to be eying for a move after informing the north London club of his wish to seek a new challenge ahead of next season.

City are said to be holding a close eye on the England skipper’s condition, with Guardiola in need of a new striker to succeed Sergio Aguero, who has reportedly consented to join Barcelona on a free transfer.

However, they are likely to encounter strong competition from Manchester United and Chelsea to secure Kane’s signature.

Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland is also perceived to be on Guardiola’s summer wish list, but the 20-year-old could be out of the Spaniard’s reach with the Bundesliga outfit prepared to retain his services.


This has led to Kane being designated as City’s pre-eminence target, with Tottenham reportedly spanking a monumental £150million price tag on their prized asset.

What remains to be seen is whether Daniel Levy will choose to cash in, with the forward remaining under contract until the summer of 2024, but Guardiola has dropped an immense hint that City are planning to throw everything at Spurs to push through a move.

Guardiola admitted on Saturday that he would be overjoyed with the addition of a rich striker, implying that in an ideal world, the club would land a player proficient of chalking up a half-century of goals throughout a season.

“I’d love to have a striker who got 50 goals a season, honestly,” said Guardiola. “At the same time, I don’t like to put all the pressure on one player.

“In Barcelona, Lionel Messi, every season since he was born, scored 50 a season. Thierry Henry scored a lot in the first season and Samuel Eto’o scored a lot – what a striker.”

City have played without an out-and-out striker in attack for much of the current period, with several players assuming the role since the start of the campaign.

One of the ideas behind the club’s remarkable Premier League title win has been Guardiola’s ability to assure that his side’s goal package has been shared across the pitch.

Ilkay Gundogan is City’s top scorer after finding the net on 17 occasions in all competitions, while Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez have chipped in with 14 goals each.

Guardiola maintained, emphasizing that while he is hopeful of landing a new talisman, the new recruit will not be able to lead the club’s attacking onslaught on his own.

“When you are to win titles, especially the Premier League, with just one guy you won’t win it,” he added.

“You need more – and the statistics speak for themselves. You need three guys with more than 10, scoring 12 or 15, to be competitive.

“But when you have a guy who can get 25 to 30 it helps a lot, honestly. We will try for the way we play for everyone to be involved.

“Raheem, Riyad and especially Gundogan this season, Phil Foden with his qualities, Sergio and Gabriel Jesus. As many players with this quality the better it will be.”
