WITH the Jack Grealish deal done and dusted Manchester City now have England captain Harry Kane firmly in their sights.
And rather than pay the £150million asking price set by Spurs chairman Daniel Levy Manchester City are prepared to offer Bernardo Silva in a player-plus-cash swap deal.
According to the Daily Mail Pep Guardiola is willing to part ways with Bernardo Silva if it brings Kane to the Etihad, but City are prepared to miss out on their target if Spurs hold out for £150million.
The Premier League champions have already submitted a £100million offer for Kane – matching the fee they paid to sign Jack Grealish from Aston Villa.
But City are not prepared to pay more than £130million for Kane, although they are willing to include Bernardo Silva in any possible switch.
Pep Guardiola himself publicly stated the 26-year-old Portuguese international was looking for an Etihad exit after struggling for game time in the last season.

And the arrival of Jack Grealish will only further limit the amount of minutes on the pitch for Silva.
Raheem Sterling has previously been rumoured as a possible bargaining tool in an attempt to prise Kane away from Spurs, but the 26-year-old is not willing to be involved in any deal with the North London club not offering Champions League football.
The England star's future at the Etihad is rumoured to be still in doubt though, with Sterling not enjoying his last twelve months in Manchester.
Manchester City have been strongly linked with a move for Kane all summer, with the 28-year-old publicly stating his desire to leave Spurs back in May.

And the England captain only rejoined his Tottenham teammates at their training ground on Saturday – five days after he was due to return from holiday following an extended break after England's Euro 2020 campaign.
He will now isolate at Spurs' training ground for five days in their on-site accommodation, meaning he will miss Spurs' Premier League opener against none other than Manchester City.
The 28-year-old will train on his own as he completes his isolation, but denies purposely missing training.
He took to to Instagram to publicly state he "would never, and have never, refused to train."
But with rumours continue to swirl surrounding Kane's future, City may return with a follow-up bid to smash the British and Premier League transfer window for the second time in the same transfer window.
