Guardiola refuses to talk transfer window

Confident for the summer transfer window and the recruitment of Skyblues, Pep Guardiola courted Harry Kane for a long time in 2021. But after obtaining the arrival of Jack Grealish for around 120 million euros from Aston Villa, Manchester City had encountered a clear refusal from Tottenham for the English striker.

The Catalan coach himself confirmed that he had tried in vain to attract Harry Kane to the side of the Etihad Stadium. The Spurs and in particular their president Daniel Levy had said no.
