Manchester City to let forwards go for Kane

Champions of England Manchester City will arrange a clean-up of the attack line for Tottenham forward Harry Kane.

The Cityzens are getting rid of the center forwards little by little. Last season, Pep Guardiola had to cope with injuries of Sergio Aguero, and his men began to play with a false nine in the person of Kevin de Bruyne. This made Manchester City safe in case there were no attackers on alert. Therefore, the departure of Sergio Aguero to Barcelona did not become something unexpected and irreparable for the champions of England.

Moreover, City may now sell the second center forward, Gabriel Jesus. The Brazilian moved to the Citizens' camp in 2017, but never got a foothold in the line-up. Despite Pep's attempts to introduce the forward into the squad, he was severely lacking in experience in the final stage.

Last season, he played 29 league games, scored just nine goals and made four assists. But this was enough for Juventus scouts to become interested in the 24-year-old Brazilian. His transfer was approved by Massimiliano Allegri and Juventus are ready to take the player on loan, but City prefer to get rid of Jesus completely.

Apparently, this is due to the possible arrival of Harry Kane. The Englishman is already showing his discontent with the fact that Tottenham are not winning cups as clearly as possible. He is ready to go up and even strengthen the competitor of the Spurs for progress. City are willing to pay 16 million euros a year to the forward and estimate the transfer at 100 million pounds. Only Daniel Levy is insisting on 160 million for the Premier League top scorer of the last season.

This transfer looks very likely. Erik Garcia and Sergio Aguero have already left Manchester City, and the Ciенzens have unloaded the payroll. Next in line is Jesus. There are also rumors about the sale of Fernandinho as his contract expires next season. With such a success, City will save a lot of the budget and will improve their quality this summer. In addition, Kane can be considered for the long term, which alone will bring results and add variability in the attack.
