Manchester City midfielder Rodri admits he would like Harry Kane to complete a record transfer from Tottenham this summer.
City tried to get a deal with the English farmer across the line in recent months, but he kept going. That’s because Spurs chairman Daniel Levy allegedly demanded £ 160 million for his star man. Kane has since resumed connections with his teammates and talked about his true feelings during the transfer saga.
In addition to what would have been a UK record transfer fee, City previously spent £ 100 million on Jack Grealish.
Kane’s teammate in England has had an exciting start to his City career, notching a goal and an assist in his first three Premier League matches.
While Rodri admitted that Kane would have added another layer of proven firepower, he insisted that Ferran Torres is a player who can replicate the striker’s blow.
“A player of Kane’s stature helps a lot, but we have a team that has been able to win the Premier League, which is almost like an internal Champions League, and you do not have to change much,” said the Spaniard. El Pais.
“The most valuable thing is the goal, because there are very few players who can score more than 20 goals, but that does not guarantee anything either.
“We have other players such as Ferran to play there. As a midfielder, I like to see him there because he creates a lot of space for you and he does not just come in to meet you.
“In addition, a finishing touch and a goal-scoring ability.”
Like Grealish, Torres has had a great start to the campaign. He scored two goals and assisted another in last weekend’s 5-0 win over Arsenal.
Kane says Tottenham’s conscience is clear
“No, I do not think so,” Kane replied when asked talkSPORT if he was worried, his reputation could be ruined by the summer transfer saga.
“Everyone involved in the football industry knows about and from, and I was calm with the situation. It was between me and the club. When you know the truth and you know what’s going on, your conscience is clear.
“I have had ups and downs, and I know many people who know that I am a professional athlete and dedicate my life to this game. My focus going forward is to win silverware at Tottenham, and this year it is no different.
“We have started brilliantly in the Premier League with three victories and we have a new manager. This is my focus. We want to win as many matches as possible and get the trophy I have wanted all my career. ”
