Manchester City transfer news: Kane goes missing, and Citizens join Botman chase

Manchester City transfer news

In this article, we will bring you all of the Manchester City transfer news from today. Make sure to check back to the site for more daily transfer updates throughout the summer.

Kane goes missing

Harry Kane was absent from yesterday’s Tottenham training through his own personal choice.

It was reported that he was scheduled to come back and the club were expecting him but he had made the decision to remain away.

A move to Manchester City has been suggested for some time with the ‘gentleman’s agreement’ between Kane and Daniel Levy seemingly yet to be honoured.

This could be a saga which runs late into the window but with the season just under 2 weeks away now, clubs will want the quickest resolution to these problems as possible.

Grealish future

Meanwhile, Manchester City are still chasing the signing of Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish.

With it confirmed that Villa have confirmed the signing of Leon Bailey from Bayer Leverkusen, it is expected now that the west midlands club have their replacement with Emi Buendia having come in as well.

Manchester City were reported to have had a £100 million bid accepted by Dean Smith’s side but there is a wait to have that clarified.

Citizens join Botman chase

Liverpool were thought to be the main suitors in the race to sign Sven Botman from Lille however recently that has changed.

Manchester City are said to be keen on the Netherlands international and could make a move for him this summer.

Brought in under the tenure of the recruitment specialist Luis Campos, Botman has gone on to become one of the best defenders in France.

City, having Ruben Dias John Stones and Aymeric Laporte, are well-stocked at the back, but with rumours of the Spaniard possibly leaving, Botman would be a great prospective replacement and possible future starter.
