Harry Kane has set his sights on a £100m-plus (Over Sh15 billion) move to Manchester City.

Tottenham striker Kane, 27, has made it clear he wants to leave White Hart Lane this summer with the driving force of winning trophies and City would offer the best opportunity.

Kane believes City are ready to follow up their interest with a bid and the England captain wants Tottenham to listen to any offers.

Want-away Kane is on £200,000-a-week and knows he could earn way more and this summer could be his big chance for a huge contract and mega deal with signing-on fee and extras taking him to a whole new ball park.

City appear to be in the driving seat, Manchester United are keeping tabs on developments while Tottenham would be hugely reluctant to sell to London rivals Chelsea.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is adamant he does not want to sell this summer, Kane has got three years left on his contract and they hold all of the aces.

Kane is believed to have had a conversation with Tottenham several weeks ago in which he made it clear that he believed there would be an official agreement they would let him go if the deal was right.

But, as reported in Mirror Sport, Tottenham have been left annoyed by the timing of Kane’s very public push to leave as they have two games left, are pushing for a European place and it could also be a major distraction for England ahead of the Euros.

City are believed to have made discreet enquiries as they look to bring in a new centre forward this summer as their No1 priority.

They have also been in the market for Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland but he appears to fancy Real Madrid while United and Chelsea are also watching developments.

City will see Sergio Aguero leave this summer and they want a new No9 and are willing to push the barriers financially as they look set to keep Fernandinho for another year and may therefore delay signing his replacement.

But Levy is still reluctant to sell Kane, if they have to then he would rather sell abroad and is adamant that he will not sell to City.
