Tottenham striker Harry Kane will join Manchester City this summer, claims European football expert and former Norway striker Jan Age Fjortoft. Kane is yet to return to Tottenham training amid reports he wants to leave this summer for City. The England captain is set to be back with Spurs later this week following an extended break after Euro 2020.
Kane told Tottenham earlier this year that he wanted to leave the club.
The 28-year-old is yet to win any major silverware in his career.
City are favourites to sign Kane despite closing in on a deal to sign Aston Villa star Jack Grealish for £100million.
Kane would likely cost more than Grealish, though Spurs’ stance is that he is not for sale at any price.
“He wants to go to Manchester City and believe me, this player will end up at Manchester City.”
Asked whether he has any doubts over that, Fjortoft continued: “Absolutely [no doubt]. Because this is going to be a money thing. Harry Kane knows this is his chance.
“We can agree or disagree on the tools he’s using to force that move, that is fair.
“I can understand the Tottenham fans being very frustrated by their captain.

“Not turning up to work, that is a tough decision by Harry Kane and somehow he is going to be penalised.
“But at the end of the day it will be his reward to be a Manchester City player next season.”
Meanwhile, former Spurs midfielder Jamie O’Hara can understand why Kane wants out of the north London club.
O’Hara told talkSPORT: “He’s one of the best strikers in the world and he probably doesn’t feel Tottenham is the place where he’s going to push on and win trophies.
“He’s 28 now, not 23. This is the time where you make that big move, get the big contracts and you guarantee yourself some trophies.
“It’s probably got to the point where he’s thinking ‘enough is enough’.
“He’s given so much to the football club, he’s tried and tried and tried to win them trophies and the club haven’t backed managers, haven’t bought in players and haven’t rebuilt the team.
“You’ve got to make a stance for yourself as a player sometimes. You’ve got to stand up and go ‘I want out, I want to go and this is my time to leave’. He might not get this opportunity again.”
