Gary Neville states that the Premer League race would be over if Man City had purchased Harry Kane
By Eddie Razo -

Despite Harry Kane remaining with Tottenham Hotspur this summer, English pundits continue to discuss the failed move to Manchester City. The Premier League rival failed to meet the asking price set by chairman Daniel Levy. 

Although the transfer window closed over a month ago, it hasn’t stopped pundits from discussing whether Tottenham made the right decision in keeping a player that might not want to be there. 

Then on the other side, there are questions whether Manchester City should’ve opened up the checkbook and paid the asking price for Kane. Pep Guardiola’s squad has one weakness, and it does not have a striker to put away scoring chances.

Pundit Gary Neville stated on Sky Sports (via The Daily Mail) that if Manchester City had forked over the fee for Kane that the Premier League title race would be over. Neville ponders whether missing someone that can score 25-30 goals in a season will come back to bite Manchester City. 

“I know Guardiola loves the idea of playing with a team of midfielders, but there is that doubt that only exists because of the lack of a striker,” Neville said. 

“If City had Kane, I’m telling you now this league is done. Forget the form Kane is in now or what he’s doing at Spurs. Him amongst that group of City players is taking a first-half that first-half. He’s gold.”

I think Neville is correct if Kane had gone to City it would be hard to see them not winning the title by a mile. In a full season he’d get 30-40 goals, he got 30 plus at Spurs twice.
Have to say their need for Kane was greater than that of Grealish who could player though he is is not a patch on Foden who ran the show yesterday. They were spoilt for choice in midfield before Grealish and are short on the striker front.

I think Kane would deffo have improved City. I also think he would have played better and up to his usual high standard had he got his move. Seems crazy for a club wallowing in money not to have paid an extra 20 mill. Arguably he is more important than Grealish to them.

I thought Pep said Levy refused to negotiate at all?

Maybe not. PSG played all their big four goalscorers against Rennes but couldnt find the net. ‘Its a funny old game’ as someone famously said.

Is that the same Rennes where most supporters thought we could field an Under 23 team because the French league is so mediocre..(haha). We still have to play them at home and only the group winner goes through without a play-off.
