Tottenham striker Harry Kane is poised to join Manchester City this summer in a £ 160m blockbuster deal after Spurs chairman Daniel Levy agreed to let him go on The Sun.
KaneThe 27-year-old has long been linked with a move to the Premier League championship and is said to be earning £ 400,000 a week at City.

According to the report, Kane was briefed on Levy’s change of heart during his older brother Charlie’s wedding.
“Harry and Charlie got the call late last week,” a club source told The Sun.
“Harry was obviously pleased because he never wanted to leave Spurs, his beloved youth club, under poor conditions.
“Daniel Levy is a skilled operator, however, and after Harry’s brilliant efforts and goals at the European Championships, his value has never been higher.
“By waiting this far, he’s likely put another £ 20 million on his price tag. A deal with Man City hasn’t been signed yet, but that’s Harry’s preference.
“It is also preferable from the Spurs’ point of view.
“You don’t want to lose him to another London side.
“The terms are tentative and it’s an incredible deal. It is now just a case of puncturing the i and crossing the t.
“Harry is in the splendor of his career and wants to win trophies.
“This is a brilliant commitment for both parties.”
Ex-City attacker Trevor Sinclair has suggested that suggested his former club doesn’t need Kane and he “can’t see” they’re paying £ 100m for someone.
“When you look at the principles that Man City adhere to and their philosophy, I can’t imagine them spending £ 100m on a player.
“They don’t want to spend that much money. They have had to invest a lot since Sheikh Mansour took over the football club.
To avoid such a high fee, City could offer Spurs players as potential Makeweights in a deal.
The athlete revealed the five players “mentioned” in the deal last month.
Gabriel Jesus, Bernardo Silva, Raheem Sterling, Aymeric Laporte and Riyad Mahrez are the potential players who can be used in the exchange, according to the report.
