It has continued to look pretty much unlikely that Manchester City will still be able to sign Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane this summer. The England international striker was heavily linked with a move to Manchester City just before the end of the Premier League season after coming out publicly to insinuate that he wants to go to a club where he can win trophies from this summer. Since then, even though the rumors have gone quiet a little more than when they first popped up, he has constantly been tipped to seal the switch to the Etihad stadium.
Following the appointment of a new manager, Nuno Espirito Santos, Kane has appeared to be more welcoming of the idea of staying at Spurs for next season and it has made City start looking for other options they could be looking at just in case they fail to land Kane this summer. According to reports, Pep Guardiola is eyeing a surprise swoop for Barcelona attacker Antoine Griezmann and could be making a bid for the France international star in the coming weeks if a move for Kane collapses.
City have already reportedly tabled a bid of around £100 million for Kane but Tottenham owner Daniel Levy is not willing to do business for that amount. Levy reportedly wants over £120 million to listen to offers for the 28-year-old and with City reluctant to part ways with such a huge amount, a move for Griezmann, who is unsettled at Barca, could be on the cards.
