Manchester City Could Offer Raheem Sterling and Aymeric Laporte to Tottenham

Bernardo Silva and Riyad Mahrez Have Also Been Mentioned

Fabrizio Romano reported yesterday that City had made the first official bid for Harry Kane this summer, which included a £100 million fee for the striker. The Athletic have today revealed the players which City are happy to send to London as part of the deal.

Pep Guardiola made clear his intentions to refresh his squad after his side’s Premier League triumph and Champions League run. The Spaniard is keen to clear several players out to keep the hunger in his squad that will be needed to compete for these trophies again.

The forward positions appear to be his focus, with Jesus, Sterling, Riyad Mahrez and Bernardo Silva all potentially being offered to Spurs. Each had a spell out of the team last season due to Guardiola’s constant rotation of his team and poor form at certain points of the season.

The Harry Kane Saga is Unlikely to End With a Deal

City are keen on Kane, who is certain he wants to leave the club this summer. These intentions are more than matched by Spurs who are adamant that he will stay at the club. Daniel Levy is certain he will not let Kane leave the club after the public nature of this transfer saga.

There is no known clause is in the England international’s contract that would allow him to leave. Kane has three years left on his current contract and is the most important player in the Spurs team.

Levy is focused on getting the team in shape to perform next season, as he has still not found a manager ahead of next season. The intention of the club to keep him means it is unlikely City will sign the club’s priority signing this summer.
