Manchester City ‘are preparing a huge £127MILLION bid for Harry Kane’ as they refuse to give up on a deal… with Spurs striker set to return to training tomorrow
- Harry Kane’s future has been the subject of debate for the past few months
- Premier League champions Manchester City are firmly interested in the forward
- Now, the City board look set to test Daniel Levy with a new and improved bid
- Kane will return to Tottenham training tomorrow after his period of self-isolation
Manchester City are reportedly preparing a new £127m (€150m) bid for Tottenham striker Harry Kane as they look to test chairman Daniel Levy’s resolve.
The Premier League champions have been targeting the England captain all summer, with manager Pep Guardiola confirming his interest in the 28-year-old last weekend.
Kane is yet to train with Spurs following his post-Euro 2020 break in the Bahamas – but is set to return tomorrow and could be available for selection for Sunday’s league opener between the two teams.

Yet Sky Sport Italy are reporting that City have not yet given up on any deal, and the board are preparing a new bid north of £125m to see if Tottenham’s stance will change.
Spurs have not received any new proposal as of yet and are keen to keep their star asset, though City are prepared to wait and be ready to see how the situation develops.
The England captain has been in self-isolation at the club’s training complex since Saturday, five days after Spurs expected him back from his holiday to the Bahamas.
Kane, who has been training individually, will take a coronavirus test on Thursday as part of the test-and-release scheme following his return from an amber list destination and if he is negative he will be clear to join group training on Friday.

That would leave him just two sessions before the season opener against champions City on Sunday – a game boss Nuno Espirito Santo had previously said he would be available for.
Kane and Nuno were due to hold talks earlier this week for the first time since the latter’s appointment last month, with the Portuguese keen to ‘solve all the situations’.
City boss Pep Guardiola admitted their interest in signing Kane last week, but said unless Spurs were willing to negotiate then it was ‘finished’.

The north London club have remained insistent throughout that their star striker is not for sale and it would need a fee north of £150million to even get them to the negotiating table.
Kane was expected back at the club’s Enfield training base for pre-season testing last Monday but did not show and it later emerged he was still on holiday in the Bahamas before making a pitstop in Florida.
The 28-year-old broke his silence last Friday by revealing he would return to the club the following day ‘as planned’ and insisted he would never refuse to train with the club.
