Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has said that Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy “knows everything”, as quoted in The Mirror.
Guardiiola has opened up on City’s failed pursuit of Tottenham striker Kane in the summer transfer window.
The 28-year-old England international said this week that he is staying at Spurs.
City manager Guardiola has said that the Premier League champions did not actually make an offer and has outlined his opinion on Spurs chairman Levy.
The former Barcelona head coach has also wished Kane the best of luck for the rest of his career.
The Mirror quotes Guardiola as saying: “The club did absolutely everything. We didn’t talk with Tottenham, not even one offer, because they didn’t want to negotiate and when one team doesn’t negotiate, there is nothing to say. Tottenham didn’t want to talk, so we didn’t talk.
“The moment they open the door, we will talk. If they say they want £200million, we will not pay it, because we don’t have it.
“The master of the big negotiation, Daniel Levy, knows everything. Maybe I would do the same if I had Harry Kane in my team. I wish him all the same for the rest of his career and doing well in London.”
What now for Manchester City?
Sergio Aguero left for Barcelona earlier this summer, and it is clear that City need to sign a striker.
The summer transfer window closes next week, and the Premier League champions need to work fast.
ESPN reported yesterday that City are confident that they can close a deal to sign former Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo from Juventus.
However, Sky Sports are reporting that the Citizens have decided not to pursue the Portugal international forward anymore.
Where do City go from here? Is Guardiola going to make Gabriel Jesus his number one striker or is he going to use Ferran Torres upfront?
