Harry Kane wants to move to Manchester City after deciding to leave Tottenham

Harry Kane favours a move to Manchester City as he wants to play for Pep Guardiola.

City, Manchester United and Chelsea have all been tipped with an interest in the England captain, but his preference is to make the switch to the champions.

Both The Times and The Mirror believe that Kane, 27, is attracted by the prospect of returning the Premier League title to Old Trafford, but that the Etihad is his number one choice. 

It now depends how much Daniel Levy wants for the club’s star striker, who still has three years left on the six-year deal he signed in 2018.

Reports elsewhere suggest that Kane wants his future sorted before England’s Euro 2020 campaign gets underway in less than four weeks’ time on June 13th.

Mikel Arteta is wasting no time as he looks to strengthen Arsenal’s squad this summer.

The Gunners have reportedly already submitted a bid for Sheffield United’s Sander Berge – but may need to up their bid.

Football.London believe Arsenal have submitted a £17m offer for the Norwegian international, 23, which is nearly £8m below the Blades’ asking price.

Berge has missed large chunks of United’s disastrous campaign but is expected to stay in the top flight as his current club drop down a tier.

But with the Blades holding out for a price of £25m plus substantial sell-ons after Berge signed a four-and-a-half year deal as recently as January 2020, the Gunners may need to dig deeper into their pockets.

Speaking in 2020, Low said: “I have the feeling that he’s undervalued by the public. 

“When he’s played with us, he’s always done his job well. As a coach, you know what to expect from him.

“He’s dependable and he’s able to do what we want him to do, which is to help build the play up from the back. 

“He’s improved defensively too. He has a certain calmness about him, which is what makes him so solid, reliable and dependable.”
