Harry Kane poised for £160million Manchester City transfer move
Daniel Levy is ready to sell Harry Kane following years of commitment at Tottenham Hotspurs and a four-year deal is ready to be offered by Manchester City for the England captain.
England and Tottenham Hotspur skipper, Harry Kane is poised for a £160million move after Spurs chairman Daniel Levy agreed to let him join an English rival.
The 27-year-old forward is set to join Man City on a record £400,000-a-week.
Daniel Levy revealed his U-turn to Harry and his team last Friday.
A source said: “Harry is delighted. He never wanted to leave on bad terms.
“His value has never been higher.”
Thrilled Harry told of his joy at his pending £160million Man City move while best man at his brother’s wedding.
Elder sibling Charlie is the England skipper’s agent and the good news was shared with family and friends at last Sunday’s nuptials.
Reports suggest that the Spurs—City contract on Kane will be a four or five-year deal that is still to be finalized.
“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.”Harry’s brother Charlie said.
Harry put in a transfer request earlier this summer. It followed Spurs’ failure to win a trophy after losing to City in April’s League Cup Final.
He had previously spoken of his desire to win trophies and play regular Champions League games.
Meanwhile, the popular striker, who turns 28 next week, celebrated his Euros success by secretly jetting off on holiday with his wife of two years, personal trainer Kate.
They took a private jet to the Caribbean after Harry’s four goals helped England’s Three Lions to the Euros final — their best performance in a major tournament for 55 years.
