A move to Manchester City has been suggested for some time with the ‘gentleman’s agreement’ between Kane and Daniel Levy seemingly yet to be honoured.
This could be a saga which runs late into the window but with the season just under 2 weeks away now, clubs will want the quickest resolution to these problems as possible.
Meanwhile, Manchester City are still chasing the signing of Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish.
With it confirmed that Villa have confirmed the signing of Leon Bailey from Bayer Leverkusen, it is expected now that the west midlands club have their replacement with Emi Buendia having come in as well.
Leon Bailey deal will be officially completed next week for £30m to Bayer Leverkusen. Aston Villa are offering Bailey a five-years contract, they’re set to reach the agreement on personal terms too. 🔴🇯🇲 #AVFC

Brought in under the tenure of the recruitment specialist Luis Campos, Botman has gone on to become one of the best defenders in France.
City having Ruben Dias John Stones and Aymeric Laporte are well stocked but with rumours of the Spaniard possibly leaving, Botman would be a great prospective replacement and possible future starter.
