Manchester City are willing to meet Tottenham's asking price for Harry Kane as they look to lure the striker to the Etihad Stadium ahead of the new season.

Spurs have insisted that Kane is not for sale this summer and have previously turned down a £100m offer from the Premier League champions. However, according to The Guardian, an offer of £150m might be enough to tempt Daniel Levy into letting his prized striker leave.

Pep Guardiola confirmed last Friday that City want to bring in Kane, but any move depends on Tottenham. “If Tottenham don’t want to negotiate, it’s finished,” the Spaniard said. “If they are open to negotiate, I think not just Man City but many clubs in the world want to try to sign him.”

Kane reported back to training after missing the initial few days due to an extended vacation, and boss Nuno Espirito Santo has hinted that he could include the England international in Spurs' squad for their season opener against City on Sunday.

Nuno is still confident of holding on to the 28-year-old, and expects Kane to rejoin training, provided he returns a negative Covid-19 test. “All the players that are in the squad are available and then it’s up to us to decide who we consider as the best options,” Nuno told Sky Sports.

The manager was asked whether that included Kane. “All the players that are in the squad that work on a daily basis will be options for us,” he added. “Then it’s up to us to decide.”
