According to the report, Kane was informed of Levy’s change of heart whilst at his older brother Charlie’s wedding.

“Harry and Charlie got the call at the end of last week,” a club source told The Sun.

“Obviously Harry was delighted because he never wanted to leave Spurs, his beloved boyhood club, on bad terms.

“Daniel Levy is a canny operator though and after Harry’s brilliant efforts and goals at the Euros his value has never been higher.

“By waiting until now, he has probably put another £20million or so on his price tag. A contract with Man City has not yet been signed but this is Harry’s preference.

“It is also preferable from Spurs’ viewpoint.

“They do not want to lose him to another London side.

“Terms have provisionally been agreed, and it’s an incredible deal. It’s now just a case of dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s.

“Harry is in the pomp of his career, and wants to win trophies.

“This is a brilliant signing for both parties.”

Ex-City attacker Trevor Sinclair has suggested that his former club do not need Kane and he “cannot see” them paying £100m on someone.

“If you look at the principles Man City try and stick to and their philosophy, I can’t see them spending £100m on a player.

“They don’t want to spend that kind of money. They’ve already had to invest a lot from when Sheikh Mansour took over the football club.”

In order to avoid spending such a hefty fee, City could offer players to Spurs as potential makeweights in a deal.

The Athletic revealed the five players that were ‘mentioned’ in the deal last month.

Gabriel Jesus, Bernardo Silva, Raheem Sterling, Aymeric Laporte and Riyad Mahrez are the potential players to use in part-exchange, according to the report.
