Once again, Manchester City came up short in their quest for UEFA Champions League glory. Pep Guardiola's boys seemed closer than ever to finally lift the long-awaited title for the club, but Chelsea destroyed their hopes. Ahead of a challenging season with their Premier League crown on the line plus a new European dream ahead, Harry Kane is reportedly a potential candidate to boost the Citizens' squad.
Throughout the 2020/21 campaign, the Spaniard boss has often decided to play without an outright striker, with both Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus hit with injuries and far from their best level, which didn't seem like a problem until the great continental game showed otherwise.
Even though the Sky Blues have been outstanding in their path towards their first UCL final in history, the defeat was a massive blow and it may lead to important decisions. With Tottenham's superstar apparently seeking a new challenge, Manchester City could make some room in their squad to bring him in.
Three players could leave Manchester City to make Kane's arrival possible
Before the hurtful ending to the Champions League journey, everything seemed to be going in the right way for the Citizens. Then again, failing to finally make the crucial step towards the title will probably force both the club and the coach to reconsider some decisions.
It is no secret that Harry Kane considers leaving Tottenham in the upcoming transfer window after they failed to win trophies in all these years. Manchester City are a strong candidate to go after him, despite negotiations with Spurs owner Daniel Levy won't be easy at all.
According to Goal, the Sky Blues would have in mind selling three players to raise funds for that move. Aymeric Laporte, Benjamin Mendy, and Raheem Sterling could be sold in the next few months to make room for the striker and meet the $140 million asking price set by the London club.
Needless to say, Pep Guardiola already has a strong enough squad that tasted success over the past few seasons, but it can get even better with Kane's possible transfer request. He is set to be the main man on the market soon, and City have what's necessary to attract him.
His arrival might give them the necessary boost to finally claim the highly desired European trophy while helping them to retain the domestic crown against tough competitors. The Citizens will probably look for a striker this summer, and Kane might be the best option.
