The transfer story surrounding Harry Kane’s transition from Tottenham to Manchester City is coming to a close. The City is ready to make “Spurs” the last offer, and rumors about alternative goals of the club appear in the press.
What does Manchester City offer?
Manchester City will make every effort to reach a deal with Tottenham. The club has a little over two weeks to complete the agreement until the transfer window ends on August 31.
Man City made a second official offer to the “Spurs,” reports The Telegraph. This time it was £ 125 million, or € 146 million. London club’s chairman Daniel Levy turned down Manchester United’s bid for a second time. Tottenham is still demanding at least £ 150m or € 175m for their top star. At the same time, the nominal value of the attacker, according to information from Transfermarkt, is € 120 million.

Part-exchange players may enter the picture, although such transactions are pretty hard to balance. There were rumors that Raheem Sterling could have added to the proposed £ 125 million, but the player refused to move to London. Other options included Gabriel Jesus and Bernardo Silva, who was linked to Barcelona and Atlético this summer. However, Tottenham had no intention to accept such an exchange: the club is interested only in cash. Now the Sky Blues is preparing, perhaps, its last offer for the striker.
What alternatives does City have?
The Daily Mail believes that Man City will no longer be ready to pay such a sum for Kane next summer. The essential factor, in this case, will be the age of the Englishman, who will turn 29 in a year. Additionally, other, more promising options on the transfer market will become more affordable next year, for example, Erling Holland and Kylian Mbappe.
Since the opening of the transfer window, Jack Grealish and Harry Kane became the main goals of Manchester City this summer. Josep Guardiola was not interested in any alternatives for both positions. The Citizens had already set the transfer record when they spent £100 million for Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish earlier this summer.
According to the Manchester Evening News, Erling Holland should become the primary target for City if Kane’s transfer operation fails. PSG and Manchester United will likely join the fight for the Norwegian striker.
Today, the purchase of Kane remains a priority for Manchester, but the club has other attractive options. Tottenham’s star is one of the Premier League’s greatest attackers, ending last season as both the league’s top scorer and assist provider.
