Manchester City prepares a new acquisition campaign. Josep Guardiola wants to hit Real Madrid two times: he has been giving Harry Kane a long-time goal for Galactic players and Isco, the only midfielder of the La Liga champion who regularly plays in the Spanish national high.
In February, it was the first time that Harry Kane (24 years old) had told Real Madrid that he had an offer from Manchester City. Now, the Spaniards from Diario Gol, also taken over by goal.com, claim that the Spanish technician would have convinced him with a solid argument: it is very important to remain in the Premier League, a competition he knows and where he is sure he would not had problems adapting.
Isco (25 years old) is the only player in Real Madrid who could become a colleague with Harry Kane next season, but only because Guardiola wants him in Manchester City. The midfielder also failed to persuade Zidane to turn him into an incontestable champion this season, and Florentino Perez would agree to sell him, especially as he is one of the best-performing players he could capitalize on budgeting for summer transfers.
Moreover, the Spaniard is not in the best relationship with the rest of the Real players. At the end of February, after defeating Espanyol Barcelona (0-1 VIDEO), he was involved in a scandal in the locker room, and Ramos jumped to Isco’s neck after the midfielder took him out of his mind.
200 million pounds – about 226 million euros – is the price prepared by Manchester City for Harry Kane, who is the top scorer of the Premier League with 24 goals on a tie with Mohamed Salah (Liverpool).
150 million euros is the price demanded by Real Madrid in exchange for Isco, but “citizens” are thinking of getting a more advantageous business after the negotiations.
In total, the final sum paid by the Sheikhs on Etihad Stadium for these two transfers could be around 350 million euros after negotiations.
