Pep Guardiola wants Manchester City to sign Harry Kane, according to the Independent.
Kane was instrumental for Tottenham as Jose Mourinho’s men beat Manchester City 2-0 in the Premier League on Saturday. The England captain laid on Giovani Lo Celso’s goal to remain at the top of the assist charts and was generally excellent all over the pitch.
Meanwhile City lacked a cutting edge in attack without Sergio Aguero, but in fairness Spurs defended brilliantly and made it difficult for the visitors to test Hugo Lloris.
In any case, it seems Guardiola is keen to strengthen up front and it sounds like he is an admirer of Tottenham’s talisman.
The Independent claims that Kane was namechecked by Guardiola in recent discussions over a new contract for the City manager. It is believed the Spaniard would like the club to at least look into the possibility of signing the Spurs striker.
And the report goes on to say that Kane may push for a move if Tottenham do not win a trophy this season.
Spurs currently sit top of the Premier League but things can change very quickly. A top four finish certainly looks realistic, but if the Londoners don’t win silverware they will have to hope Champions League football is enough to keep Kane happy.
