Guardiola plans to leave Manchester City Manchester City suffered a double blow on Wednesday as manager Pep Guardiola said he plans to leave the club in 2023 as Spurs striker Harry Kane announced he is staying at the London team.
The prospect of Kane moving to City came to a screeching halt on Wednesday as the England captain announced on Twitter that he would be staying at the club he’s spent the majority of his career at.
“I will be staying at Tottenham this summer and will be 100% focused on helping the team achieve success.”
Kane — whose contract at Spurs runs until 2024 — had previously said he’d like to leave this summer, and believed he had a gentleman’s agreement with chairman Daniel Levy make that happen. However, Levy refused to budge on reported $200 million asking price. Having already signed Jack Grealish for £100m, Manchester City seemed unwilling to stump up that sum. After not turning up for scheduled training and coronavirus tests, Kane then missed the first two games of the season, before finally making his first appearance on Sunday, coming on as a substitute in Spurs’ 1-0 Premier League win over Wolves.
It was incredible to see the reception from the Spurs fans on Sunday and to read some of the messages of support I’ve had in the last few weeks,” Kane wrote in a social media post on Wednesday,
