Harry Kane ‘to join Man City in £160m deal’ after Daniel Levy gives Tottenham star green light to move to Premier League rivals

Harry Kane has reportedly been given permission to join Man City in a deal that would smash the British transfer record.

Kane is believed to have told Tottenham before Euro 2020 that he wanted to leave this summer and a move to City has been heavily linked.

It appears as though his wish may be granted and will head to the current Premier League champions.

The Sun report that Daniel Levy has given Kane the green light to join City in a £160million deal.

That would smash the biggest fee paid by a British club for a player – currently held by Manchester United who signed Paul Pogba for £89million in 2016.

The report also adds that Kane would be given a contract worth £400,000-a-week at City.

The Manchester club are thought to have made a £100million bid for Kane last month, which was turned down.

Reports claimed City were preparing offers that would include a player as part of the deal, but it looks as though they are willing to pay the asking price set by Levy.

Former City winger Trevor Sinclair cast doubts over whether the club would pay such a sum for a player.

“If you look at the principles Man City try and stick to and their philosophy, I can’t see them spending £100m on a player,” Sinclair told talkSPORT Breakfast.

“They don’t want to spend that kind of money. They’ve already had to invest a lot from when Sheikh Mansour took over the football club.

“They were so far behind everybody on the pitch and not even that they had to invest into their training facility because Carrington wasn’t up to it.

“They’ve never broken [transfer] records. They’ve never been near breaking Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea.

“All the other clubs are buying players for £80m or £90m, Man City are not near that. I don’t think that’s by accident, I think that’s by design.”
