Manchester City are prepared to pay as much as £130m for Tottenham striker Harry Kane, according to reports in the English media.
The Citizens are about to shell out a British record fee on Jack Grealish, but it seems the spending won’t stop there, and supporters on Twitter believe the price limit set by the club for Kane is fair but very impressive:
Feels like FIFA and I’m all for it ?

Some journalists don’t think that City will be able to finance deals for both Grealish and Kane this summer. However, if they do offload players like Gabriel Jesus and Bernardo Silva, there should be funds available.
With Chelsea focusing on signing Romelu Lukaku, and Manchester United seemingly happy to wait until next year to make a move for a striker, City don’t really have any competition for Kane either.
The major obstacle, though, is still Spurs chairman Daniel Levy. £130m may not be enough to persuade him into selling up, with some reports suggesting he wants in excess of £150m.
