Manchester City: Sky Sports share mid-week transfer twist involving Erling Haaland and Harry Kane

Manchester City: Sky Sports share mid-week transfer twist involving Erling Haaland and Harry Kane -Manchester City Transfer Rumours

As per Sky Sports, there has been a major transfer twist out of Manchester City involving Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland and Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane.

The Lowdown: City have Haaland deal in place?

Reliable journalists Jack Gaughan and Craig Hope turned the heads of many Sky Blues supporters when they broke recent news of City having a deal in place for long-time target Haaland.

The Norway star, they claim, is edging closer and closer to Eastlands with sources in Germany expecting Dortmund’s forward to ultimately choose a move to Manchester.

The Mail also believe that personal terms have been discussed with Haaland and his entourage as Sky Blue ready the green-light to sign him this summer.

After this development, you’d think that would put an end to City’s interest in Kane, but you’d be wrong according to Sky Germany.

The Latest: Sky share transfer twist…

According to the big name broadcaster, sharing ‘different’ information, Pep Guardiola and co actually hold Kane in higher esteem with the England international remaining a top target.

“In England it has already been reported that Haaland is about to move to City. Our information is different,” said Sky journalist Marc Behrenbeck.

Sky go on to state that City are still eyeing Kane and even see the 28-year-old as a ‘little stronger’ than Haaland, believing he ‘fits better’ into Guardiola’s system.

Sporting director Txiki Begiristain, however, does still have the latter man in their sights.

The Verdict: Major claim…

This comes as a pretty surprising development given Haaland could leave Dortmund this year for the very reasonable price of his £63 million release clause, though add-ons and his sky-high salary package will bump up the overall cost.

Saying that, for a striker still only 21-years-old and already proving to be prolific at the very top level, even a total of figure of around £100 million (including signing-on fees and agent bonuses) is arguably peanuts for City.

Meanwhile, a swoop for Kane could prove as difficult as it did last year.

An Eastlands source slammed chairman Daniel Levy’s famous nature of being a stubborn negotiator after they agreed a deal to sign Kyle Walker for £50 million, using a rather colourful description (The Athletic).

City have wasted enough time attempting to reach a compromise with Spurs and Levy, as evident by their four approaches in 2021, and we believe Haaland comes as the far greater option.
