“Not going to get him”: Ex-PL star rules out Man City transfer for Tottenham ace Harry Kane

Manchester City unlikely to splash £150m for Harry Kane, claims Micah Richards

Speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live (h/t Football.london), former Manchester City defender Micah Richards has claimed that the Premier League champions are unlikely to splash £150m to sign Harry Kane from Tottenham.

Ever since Sky Sports broke the news last night that Kane had informed Tottenham that he wanted an exit at the end of the season, the rumour mill has been buzzing non-stop. The same report also conveyed that the 27-year-old intended to stay in the Premier League, while naming Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City as his suitors.

In fact, it was even claimed the three clubs had been in contact with the England captain’s representatives already over a summer move. Football.london, though, insist that there has been no such development but do add that Kane has grown frustrated at how things are going on at Tottenham.

Will Kane join Manchester City?

Amidst all the talk, former Manchester City defender turned pundit, Micah Richards has claimed that while Kane would be a perfect fit in Pep Guardiola’s side, it is unlikely that they would be willing to pay £150m for the Tottenham striker.

“Of course he [Kane] would work at City, he works hard and he scores goals. Would they pay £150million for him? No, they wouldn’t. “They might pay £80million or £90million, but they are not going to get him for that.”

He further adds that City would rather look at younger options such as Erling Haaland or Kylian Mbappe if they are paying that amount, while also tipping Manchester United as the perfect fit for Kane.

“They would be looking for youth if they were going to spend £150million. They would go for [Erling] Haaland or [Kylian] Mbappe. The thing is I think Kane is a perfect suit for Man United. Him and [Edinson] Cavani up front for that one role, one play, one rest, you would have two top strikers.

“Kane would be the number one, with Cavani being managed correctly, because he is 34 and you can see the impact he can have starting, or off the bench. I just don’t see Man City being in for him if he is going to cost £150million to be honest.”

It is very much unlikely that Daniel Levy would be willing to let Kane join a direct rival. But, if what Sky Sports is reporting is indeed true, we could be in for a long drawn-out transfer saga this summer.
