Manchester City have reportedly turned down an opportunity to sign Sergio Ramos.
The Spaniard parted ways with Real Madrid this week after spending 16 years at the capital.
Even at 35, he is viewed as an attractive prospect for some of the top teams in Europe. City could definitely have utilised his Champions League-winning pedigree in the dressing room but chose against it.
If their rivals, Manchester United or Chelsea end up signing him, it could be a big blow. Otherwise, The Cityzens are moving on their primary target this summer which is Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane.
Journalist, Fabrizio Romano said: “The feeling around Harry Kane is still the same. Tottenham are changing a lot of things at the club, on the bench, and many things, manager, director. But, the situation for Harry Kane is still the same.
“The player wants to play Champions League football and Manchester City are really pushing for him. Manchester City are really going to insist for Harry Kane. I think there will be some update in the next hours or days about this situation because Manchester City want Harry Kane but we have to respect Tottenham’s position, and Tottenham at the moment are still saying: ‘no, the player is not leaving. We want a crazy bid or the player is staying.’
“So, that’s why it’s not an easy negotiation as I always said, but Manchester City are really intending to push for Harry Kane.”
