Harry Kane can finally land the transfer he’s been pushing for in January, Chelsea star Callum Hudson-Odoi is set to change allegiances, while Saturday’s transfer gossip claims Manchester United are prioritising a £100m man in 2022.
MAN CITY BACK IN FOR HARRY KANE
Manchester City will finally land Harry Kane in the January transfer window and look ready to bow to Tottenham’s demands, claims a report.
City spent the whole summer chasing the Tottenham talisman after Kane revealed his desire to quit north London for a fresh challenge. However, they were unable to agree a fee with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy, having reportedly offered £75million plus a further £25m in add-ons.
Levy wanted closer to £150m and, after weeks of speculation, the England skipper eventually decided to stay put – for now.
According to ESPN, via the Daily Express, Spurs are ready to try again for Kane in January. And having learned what a tough taskmaster Levy is, will now meet his asking price.
And with the no-nonsense Spurs chairman valuing his star at £150m, a new British transfer record will comfortably be set.
However, City believe by moving in January they can unseat the 28-year-old before he signs up.
Meanwhile, Thomas Tuchel has confirmed Chelsea held talks with Harry Kane’s representatives over the summer as they chased a new striker.
The Blues ultimately ended up re-signing Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan for a club record deal. Tuchel though admits Lukaku is the perfect fit, but also admits that he was informed that Kane would only leave Spurs for Manchester City.
