The performance and lack of a natural striker from the get-go will have only ignited Pep Guardiola’s burning desire for further financial backing.
If Kane were to join Man City in the final two weeks of the summer window, it would break the British transfer record again.
In fact, it wouldn’t break it, but it would absolutely smash it given a fee for the England captain could realistically rise to over £160m.
The £89m Manchester United paid Juventus for Paul Pogba in 2016 was the record going into the current window.
With Romelu Lukaku’s £97.5m to Chelsea also going through this month, though, Kane’s ‘imminent’ move to Manchester would surpass that for the third time.
