Speaking to Sky Sports (via Football Daily), Spanish football journalist Alvaro Montero has shared news involving Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane – with Barcelona not prioritising a move for the striker and Man City now favourites to sign him.
The Lowdown: Kane exit saga underway…
After Sky Sports broke the news that Kane has reiterated his desire to leave north London, many Premier League clubs have been linked with a swoop for the superstar hitman.
This includes the likes of City, Manchester United and Chelsea on the domestic scene – with chairman Daniel Levy remaining firm on his Kane stance this summer.
Sky believe that Levy values him at ‘well over‘ £120 million and any club who wants to sign him will have to invest heavily in a very difficult financial climate.
The Latest: Journalist shares news involving Kane
Speaking to Sky and sharing his information on the saga, journalist Montero has effectively ruled out Barca as serious contenders for Kane’s signature this summer.
“After asking, I believe that Harry Kane is not the priority number one of Barcelona,” he explained (via Football Daily).
“Once you ask inside the club, the feeling inside Barcelona is that Harry Kane is going to stay in the Premier League.
“Here in Spain, we are talking about Manchester City as the next team.”
The Verdict: Bad news for Spurs…
Ideally, if Kane is to leave north London at all, Lilywhites supporters will surely want him to move abroad in his quest to win silverware.
Manchester City being touted as the favourites for Kane could present a problem for fans who don’t want him leaving to a rival – especially given City are one of the only clubs in world football who could probably afford his sky high valuation.
As per this development, it appears the 27-year-old’s likelihood of choosing a move abroad has just grown that little bit slimmer.
Could Mauricio Pochettino have a say in stopping Tottenham’s rivals from snatching Kane away this summer?
