Why Man City failed to sign Harry Kane – Guardiola explains

Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, says he failed to bring Harry Kane last summer because Tottenham Hotspur was difficult to negotiate with.

Guardiola says City tried to lure Kane away, but Spurs were clear in their stance.

“I never was, in my 11 or 12 years, disappointed in what the club cannot do in the transfer market.

“I’ve never created a fire here because I represent the club and the club is always beyond myself by far.

“We tried [to sign Kane] but it was far away to be done because Tottenham was clear this is not going to happen. And when it happens two, three, four times, it’s over.

“The club gave me players and I’m always delighted – and it’s then what we can do together. Maybe if we had a proper striker we would play with a striker but with the players we have, we have to adapt,” Guardiola told a press conference on Friday.
