  • Manchester City wants Harry Kane this summer
  • The club is "more than willing" to send a larger second bid
  • There are no updates yet as to Kane's future with Tottenham

Manchester City wants Harry Kane, and the club is preparing to send a massive second bid for the striker.

It has been reported that the English Premier League champions had sent a £100 million ($138.2 million) bid for the England national team captain, but Tottenham opted to reject it as they are still keen on rebuilding the relationship between them and Kane.

Tottenham team chairman has been quoted in the past that he will do “what is right” for the club this summer, even if it means rejecting an already impressive bid from Manchester City.

However, Manchester City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak and the team are in the works of sending a second, more massive bid that might finally net them Kane this summer.

Tottenham’s reported asking price for Kane is set at £120 million ($165.7 million), but Manchester City is reportedly upping their second bid.

The Athletic’s Charlie Eccleshare, via Harry Winters of City Xtra, said that the team is “expected to act more decisively” to secure Kane’s transfer.

Eccleshare also mentioned that Manchester City’s desire for the world-class striker will dictate their next bid, and the club is more than “willing to pay more than £100 million ($138.5 million)” for Kane.

But after sending an already impressive first bid only to be rejected by Tottenham, it is still unclear if Manchester City is willing to go extremely deep into their pockets to entice Tottenham to sell as Eccleshare notes that it is “less clear” if the club will be willing to shell out a bid of close to £150 million ($207.7 million).

The report also makes note that a figure closer to that amount may persuade Levy to sell Kane this transfer window.

There have been few updates as to what’s going on in the mind of Kane and whether he will be open to talking to Levy again, but if Tottenham wants to make sure that they can keep him, they’ll have to sign some impressive talent.

Manchester United, Chelsea, Manchester City and Arsenal have already made moves and are in the process of making moves to acquire high-level talent from across the European peninsula.
