Man City launched Harry Kane bid in January and have advantage this summer

Manchester City made an inquiry for Harry Kane – back in January.

Tottenham told Pep Guardiola’s treble chasers to forget it but it appears that New Year approach set the wheels in motion for the England skipper to go public with his desire to leave this summer.

Whether Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is prepared to listen to offers of £100million plus for the prolific hitman after Sunday’s final game of the campaign – at Leicester – remains to be seen.

But he is well aware that City want Kane – and have done so for some time – while his hitman, with 32 goals in all competitions this term, is hellbent on going to the Etihad.

If Kane, 27, is to end his association with Spurs – and not leave for a team on the continent – Levy would be more likely to do business with City rather than Man United or Chelsea.

Blues boss Thomas Tuchel admitted on Friday that there is not a top club in the world who would not love the Tottenham talisman if he is on the market.

But unless Chelsea were to significantly beat City’s offer, the chances of him heading to Stamford Bridge are virtually non-existent.

And after losing both Dimitar Berbatov to United in 2008 and Michael Carrick a couple of years earlier, Levy is desperate not to let Kane sign for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men.

That leaves the way clear for City – and the fact Kane’s representatives have already started property hunting in the North West suggests that is his clear preference.
