Manchester City have been linked with a sensational double swoop for both Jack Grealish and Harry Kane this summer.
The two England stars are both coming off the back of strong showings at Euro 2020 where they helped the Three Lions to reach the final of the tournament. While they weren’t quite able to get over the finish line against Italy, they certainly gave a good account of themselves and only further increased their value heading into the summer transfer window.
Guardiola goes in for the kill
City had been taking a look at both men for quite some time before the Euros even got underway, and as per The Athletic, they’re willing to really break the bank in the name of taking them off the hands of Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa.
“They know, of course, that it will not be easy to land their top targets and neither will come cheaply: City estimate the total cost for Kane and Grealish to be £175 million to £215 million.
“Obviously, that will not be their net spend for this window and if those sums are to be spent, that outlay would be significantly balanced by sales.”
Harry Kane has been heavily linked with a move away from North London ever since the domestic season ended, and after England’s Euros heartbreak, he’ll be more passionate than ever with regards to going after a piece of silverware.
Grealish, popularly known as Villa’s talisman, will be just as keen to get some trophies under his belt, but his loyalty to the Midlands club has stood firm in the last few years despite heavy speculation over his future.
Right now Pep Guardiola will have a lot of spinning plates in the air with his priority being to get City’s squad sorted and ready for their season opener against Tottenham on August 15.
