Pep Guardiola 'wants Grealish and Kane to link up with Foden'

Pep Guardiola ‘wants Jack Grealish and Harry Kane to link up with Phil Foden at Manchester City with the manager believing the trio can form a devastating attack’

  • Pep Guardiola wants to sign Harry Kane and Jack Grealish this summer 
  • The Manchester City boss is looking for them to link up with Phil Foden 
  • Guardiola believes the trio can form a devastating attacking line-up 
  • All three players are set to be key for England at the Euros this summer 

Pep Guardiola is reportedly intent on signing Jack Grealish and Harry Kane so they can form a devastating attack with Phil Foden.

As reported by Sportsmail last month, City are ready to smash the British transfer record to make Grealish the first £100million player with Kane also firmly in their sights after the striker told Tottenham he wanted to leave.

According to ESPN, Guardiola wants both players to link up with fellow England international Foden, with the City boss believing he and Grealish could help them dominate the Premier League for the next five years.

The report claims City are confident they can convince Aston Villa to do business after the club completed the £40m signing of Emi Buendia from Norwich.

Kane is understood to be Guardiola’s No 1 target to replace Sergio Aguero as his main striker but the manager believes they should not miss out on the chance to land Grealish.

City have a wealth of options in attack including Raheem Sterling, Riyad Mahrez and Bernardo Silva.

Foden and Kane are expected to play a key role for England at the Euros this summer

But Foden, who picked up the PFA Young Player of the Year award on Sunday, is seen as the main man going forward.

The 20-year-old scored 16 goals in all competitions and added 10 assists as he helped City reach their first Champions League final. 

And Guardiola believes the addition of Kane and Grealish can help them go one better after losing out to Chelsea. 

All three players are set to play a key role for England at the Euros this summer. 

Grealish was named player of the match in the final warm-up game against Romania after coming off the bench to win a penalty.

Kane will be looking to pick up another Golden Boot after topping the scoring charts at the 2018 World Cup while Foden is also likely to be an important player for Gareth Southgate.
