Man City willing to wait till 2022 for Harry Kane if transfer falls through
Manchester City are in the market for a new centre-forward after having lost star striker and club legend Sergio Aguero on a free transfer to Barcelona.
The reigning champions of England and the 2020/21 UEFA Champions League finalists have set their sights on Kane as the target to replace Aguero this summer. Apart from Manchester City, fellow Premier League clubs Manchester United and Chelsea are also showing an interest in the 27-year-old England captain. (h/t ESPN)
However, Manchester City understand that a move for Kane might prove to be difficult this summer. This is because Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is demanding a transfer fee of around or in excess of £150m.
With the England striker’s contract still having three years left on his deal, it puts Spurs in a strong position as well. As a result, Manchester City are now said to be willing to wait out a year to move for Kane, in case a transfer fail to go through this summer. The Cityzens took a similar stand while strengthening their midfield and defence with Rodri and Ruben Dias respectively and are prepared to do so again. (h/t ESPN)

Tottenham’s most important player, Kane staying at the club is integral for the team to bounce back after the disappointing last season, especially given that a new manager is set to take over.
