Harry Kane is not close to joining Manchester City, who have still only made one bid for the Tottenham striker, according to Fabrizio Romano.
Rumours swirled on Thursday when The Sun reported that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has agreed to sell Kane to City for £160 million after making a U-turn on their not-for-sale stance.
The story also claimed that Kane is delighted to have agreed terms on a £400,000-a-week contract at the Etihad Stadium.
Manchester City are interested but there’s NO fee agreed. Only bid was one month ago: £100m, turned down. #Kane

However, Romano – who is always reliable when it comes to transfers – says City are yet to improve on the £100 million bid they originally made for Kane.
That bid, then, is the most recent and only offer City have made for the England captain, and Romano says Tottenham turned it down.
He adds that the Londoners have denied talk of any new agreement and still want to keep Kane at the club this summer.
Indeed, it looks like the 27-year-old will be going nowhere unless City increase their bid significantly – and there is currently no indication as to whether that will happen.
