After confirming Sergio Aguero’s departure, the English from Manchester City are looking at the market looking for a striker. Harry Kane, who plays for José Mourinho’s Tottenham, is the plan B of the cityzens, whose priority is the hiring of Erling Haaland, from Borussia Dortmund.
The news is advanced this Wednesday by the British newspaper Times, who realizes that, with the departure of Aguero, who for a decade wore the shirt of City, the cityzens will have to look for a new player to the front of the attack.
On the table are two options, according to the same source.
Young Erling Haaland is Pep Guardiola’s main target, but the coach is aware that this could be a difficult signing, as the player has several interested clubs. Real Madrid, United and Tottenham will be some of the clubs in the race.
Still, Manchester City will be willing to come up with an “astronomical” salary to convince the young Norwegian: 703 thousand euros per week, a value that would make him the highest paid player in the English league, advances the The Sun. At issue is a five-year contract over which he would receive around 351 million euros.
Anticipating possible difficulties in the purchase of Haaland, City has already defined a plan B that, according to the daily Times is Harry Kane, whose continuity at Tottenham is open, according to the international sports press.
Despite having a contract with spurs until 2024, Kane does not rule out leaving Tottenham.
“It is difficult to answer now [sobre o meu futuro]. My focus is on the next two England games, the rest of the season with Tottenham and then the European Championship. Thinking about speculation and rumors would be detrimental to my performance ”, said a British player this week in an interview with the Brit Telegraph.
And he insisted: “I always try to focus on a goal and on working to be well until the end of the season for Tottenham, winning these World Cup qualifying games for England and making a great European. I am focused on working on the pitch until the end of the summer and then soon we will see what happens“.
