Harry Kane set to join Man City in £160m transfer after Daniel Levy makes U-turn

Harry Kane is reportedly set to join Manchester City in a bumper £160m move.

Kane has been heavily linked with a move away from Tottenham this summer and City are in the market for a new striker, following Sergio Aguero’s exit.

Speaking back in May, the England captain admitted that it was time for “a good honest conversation” with Spurs chief Daniel Levy about his future.

Speaking to Gary Neville on The Overlap, Kane said: “I want to play in the biggest games, the biggest moments.

“I’m there watching the Champions League, watching the English teams and they’re doing amazing and they’re the games I want to be involved in.

“For sure, there’s a moment in my career where I have to reflect and see where I’m at and have a good honest conversation with the chairman and I hope we can have that conversation.

“I’m sure he’ll want to set out the plan of where he sees it but ultimately it’s going to be down to me and how I feel and what’s going to be best for me and in my career at this moment in time.”

Kane is said to have informed Spurs of his desire to leave ahead of the Euros and now, according to a report from the Sun, City are closing in on his signature.

The report states that Levy has agreed to let Kane join the reigning Premier League champions, with the deal said to be worth £160m.

It is also claimed that Kane would bank £400,000-a-week, with the length of his contract yet to be finalised.

A source told the publication: “Obviously Harry was delighted because he never wanted to leave Spurs, his beloved boyhood club, on bad terms.

“Daniel Levy is a canny operator though and after Harry’s brilliant efforts and goals at the Euros his value has never been higher.

“By waiting until now, he has probably put another £20million or so on his price tag. A contract with Man City has not yet been signed but this is Harry’s preference.

“It is also preferable from Spurs’ viewpoint. They do not want to lose him to another London side.

“Terms have provisionally been agreed, and it’s an incredible deal. It’s now just a case of dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s.

“Harry is in the pomp of his career, and wants to win trophies. This is a brilliant signing for both parties.”
