A bombshell has been dropped in England. As reported by 'The Sun', Manchester City and Tottenham have reached an agreement for the transfer of Harry Kane, who will leave the Spurs, his boyhood club.
The owner of the North London club, Daniel Levy, assured on more than one occasion that the striker would continue at the club next season, to the point of guaranteeing Nuno Espirito Santo his continuity.
However, Levy seems to have changed his mind and will now allow his departure. He will allow the transfer to go through but not make it easy. The player's price has been set at €187 million - a Premier League record transfer fee - and second only to the €222 million PSG paid for Neymar in his day.
His older brother and agent, Charlie Kane, shared the news with the striker's family and friends, who greeted it with great delight. The whole thing is expected to be made official in the coming days. In principle, he will sign a long-term contract until after 2025.
The salary, at the same level as the transfer
Obviously, with such a high amount of money, it seems logical that the striker will have a salary to match. The aforementioned media assured that in Guardiola's team he will earn 16 million euros net per year.
In this way, Kane will fulfil his desire to leave the club, something he already stated at the time. Once the remaining details are finalised, he will leave after making a total of 336 appearances, scoring 221 goals and providing 45 assists.
With his arrival, the Sky Blues will continue to strengthen one of the most formidable forwards in Europe. The Walthamstow native will join Gabriel Jesus, Ferran Torres, Sterling and Bernardo Silva in the north of England.
