Man City target Kane believes he has a ‘gentleman’s agreement’ with Levy

Harry Kane is growing increasingly confident of a move to Manchester City as he reportedly believes he and Daniel Levy have a 'gentleman's agreement' to allow him to move this summer.

Tottenham striker Kane appears to be desperate to leave Spurs in search of silverware.

City have appeared as the frontrunners to land the England captain this week, and are ready to sell players to raise funds to force a deal through.

Kane's main stumbling block appears to be Tottenham not wanting to sell him as the club's most prized asset.

According to BBC Sport though, Kane is of the belief that he and Spurs chairman Levy have a gentleman's agreement to allow him to leave if the right offer comes in.

Levy has always taken a hard-nosed approach in the past when it comes to transfer dealings though, and that resolve is sure to be tested again.

New Spurs boss Nuno Espirito Santo also appears to be confident of holding onto Kane, describing him as "our player".

He added: "No need to talk about anything else, I am looking forward to him joining the group."

Daily Star Sport understands that City chairman Khaldoon Al-Mubarak knows he will have to smash the club's transfer record – £63.7m paid for Ruben Diaz – to land Kane.

But he will not come close to matching the £160m Spurs want for the 27-year-old hitman.

City are willing to go as high as £120m for Kane and will sell Bernardo Silva and Gabriel Jesus to help fund the record-breaking deal.

It means the top flight rivals will spend the next few weeks locked in a game of brinkmanship in a bid to negotiate what will be the biggest transfer in British football history.

City have agreed personal terms with Kane of £350,000-a-week – but the fee remains the biggest hurdle to the deal being done before the start of the new season on August 14.
