Former Manchester City star Shaun Wright-Phillips has admitted Spurs striker Harry Kane will still be in contention for being signed by City despite links to Erling Haaland. It has been rumored that the England skipper left Tottenham for Manchester City last summer but no move has taken place.
Harry Kane was the center of transfer attention last summer as he outlined his intentions to leave Tottenham in a quest to claim silverware before retiring. This combined with Manchester City prioritizing a new striker, saw Kane heavily linked with a move to Manchester. However, a deal could not be reached between the reigning Premier League champions and the London club as Spurs ruled out the England striker on a move.
City boss Guardiola has continued to experiment with a false nine system this season with great success, although there is recognition within City’s ranks that a striker should be the priority this summer. The Spaniard will be keen to recruit a traditional number 9 as the focal point of his attack ahead of next season. Borussia Dortmund Striker Erling Haaland is rumored to join the English club next summer, although former City winger Shaun Wright-Phillips believes an approach for Kane is not entirely out of the question.
“Kane will always be in the hat for this position with City. I don’t think it’s dead and buried yet. He came to life at the end of the season and we’re used to seeing this Kane. We see the real Kane coming back with his mobility he looks fitter, he looks sharper and he’s got his goals back. He’s a player you can never ignore,” Phillips told GOAL.
“When you look at City’s purchases, a lot of them in terms of age range are under 26. They normally work for longevity and I can imagine they’ll do the same again,” he said. -he adds.
