Manchester City is set to rival Real Madrid for £177 million-rated star as Pep Guardiola gives the Etihad outfit directors the green light to go ahead, according to report.

Manchester City is ready to pip Real Madrid to the signing of Tottenham striker Harry Kane. The England international has been on Real Madrid radar since last season and his form has been impressive for the past two seasons and this season Kane has scored 35 goals in 38 games in all competitions.

Diario Gol reported that Guardiola is willing to edge Real Madrid in the race to sign the forward as he seeks to replace to Sergio Aguero.

Real Madrid want to overhaul as they seek to get rid of misfiring Karim Benzema next season and have looked towards the direction of Spurs striker to fill up the gap.

Spurs would surely rather lose Kane to a foreign side than to one of their main Premier League title rivals, but Diario Gol’s report suggests such a move could be possible.

This would be a huge blow for Tottenham and indeed for the rest of the Premier League as one can only imagine how much Manchester City would run away with the title again next year with the addition of one of the country’s best goalscorers to their dominant squad.
