Man City not interested in 29-year-old Harry Kane

Manchester City will not return to Tottenham for Harry Kane next summer – when he will be an ancient 29 – so any deal has to be done this summer.

City are yet to improve on their initial £100m offer for Kane but do intend to make another bid before the window closes, according to the Daily Mail.

It remains to be seen whether that next bid will come close to the £150m reportedly wanted by Tottenham to sell their biggest asset; the Mail say Daniel Levy ‘will not entertain offers south of that’.

City will apparently make it clear that this summer’s big money will be the last time they will offer such sums for a player who will be 29 before the start of next season.

Erling Haaland will be available next summer for a ridiculously low price of £67m while Kylian Mbappe will be available for nothing, which is very careless of PSG.

Kane is still expected by the bookies to complete his move to City, though the club have included him in their Conference League squad to play Pacos de Ferreira.

Kane missed Sunday’s clash between Tottenham and Manchester City, though that did not prevent him being dominant in reaction to the game.

The England captain did not return from holiday in time to be seriously considered for a place in the team and was afforded an extra rest after his exertions during Euro 2020.

Charlie Eccleshare of The Athletic has confirmed that Kane was never likely to be picked as he is ‘yet to train’ with the first team upon his belated return.

The striker remains ‘desperate’ to join Manchester City and realise his dream of winning trophies but ‘is insistent he will make himself available’ for Tottenham while he is still their player.

It was claimed at the weekend that Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy was ‘digging in’ over Kane as the transfer deadline approaches, with the club likely to keep him for at least another year.

Eccleshare adds that ‘there is no active dialogue currently’ between Tottenham and Manchester City and time is running out to strike a deal.
