Flocking to Twitter, a number of Manchester City fans have reacted to a transfer claim coming out of Eastlands involving Tottenham striker Harry Kane.
The England international was a major target for Pep Guardiola in the summer, with City even lodging bids of £100m according to Sky Sports.
However, these efforts to sign Spurs’ prized asset weren’t enough, with the 29-year-old remaining in north London, thus ending City’s hopes of signing a world class centre-forward over that transfer window.
According to their information, the Spaniard is still ‘desperate’ for City to sign a forward, with sources close to the Sky Blues boss believing that the Tottenham superstar is ‘perfect’ for them. The report added that a move for Kane ‘would be welcomed’ at Eastlands next month.
City fans erupt…
Kane is certainly not without his merits as a transfer target, especially considering that he can play as false nine and won the Premier League Golden Boot last year, scoring an incredible 23 goals and setting up 14 more in the top flight alone.
Taking this into account, it’s not surprising that some supporters still want him at the club, with Bradford City defender Liam Ridehalgh even calling Kane a ‘monster‘.
However, others have reacted to this fresh claim with a bit of scepticism given the long-winded and eventually fruitless summer saga over Kane’s signature, not to mention their links to much younger options like Erling Haaland or Dusan Vlahovic.
Check out some of the mixed reactions to this transfer update below.
“Getting Kane who is almost 30 instead of chasing Haaland and Vlahovic, both 21, is madness and clueless.”
“The perfect footballer.”
“I’m sorry but that boat has sailed. Don’t want him anywhere near the club. His drop in form just goes to show he’s on the decline. We need a striker who is going to flourish and has his best years in front of him. Haaland, Vlahovic, Felix are better suited.”
“The news I’ve been waiting for !”
‘Yessss’, ‘On my knees’… Some Man City fans also went wild for this ‘massive’ transfer rumour; find out more here.
