Man City make eye-watering 'player plus cash' offer for Harry Kane
It looks set to be the transfer saga of the summer.
Manchester City have made a huge offer of £100 million plus the possibility of a player to Tottenham, in a bid to lure Harry Kane away from the club.
However it seems like Spurs owner Daniel Levy is standing firm in his desire to keep the star man at the club as they try to rebuild for the upcoming season.
There have been rumours for weeks now about Kane's desire to leave the club, and Tottenham really appear to be in a state of turmoil as their endless search for a permanent manager goes on.
The news of City's offer was shared by Fabrizio Romano, with the transfer news extraordinaire writing: 'Manchester City made an official proposal to Tottenham for Harry Kane. £100m guaranteed and availability to include players in the deal...
'Tottenham have NO intention to accept. Harry wants to go, but Levy will try to keep him. Harry now focused on the Euros, then it’ll be decided."

For the sake of the league though, we surely have to all be hoping this doesn't happen. It's difficult to see how anyone would get close to challenging City for the title if Kane decided to make the move to the Etihad.
It's difficult to overstate how much of an asset Kane is to Spurs in both a footballing and commercial sense. If there is one person this won't be lost on, it's Daniel Levy. If he doesn't want to sell he won't, and it's difficult to see Kane getting to the point where he would refuse to play for the club that he loves.
It's all up to Daniel now. Clubs like City have got the money, Kane sounds like he wants to leave. It's simply a case of whether Levy decides to let his beloved Harry go.
