Former Premier League professional and football pundit Darren Ambrose has called the rumoured Man City £90m bid for Harry Kane an insult.
This response comes after reports from within Manchester City claim that the club may be going after Harry Kane this transfer window.
The English hitman has been one of City’s prospects to solve their striking problem. With Gabriel Jesus not yet a reliable option and an unfit Sergio Aguero; the Cityzens have struggled to win games this season.
Signing the Tottenham talisman may be a solution. However, if they plan to land him for £90m they may as well not come to the negotiation table according to Ambrose.

That is what Darren Ambrose believes. He even called the alleged bid ‘derogatory’ and said it would not be enough to buy Kane’s right leg.
Why? For one, Harry Kane has proven to be one of the best strikers in the league for over four consecutive seasons. There is also the fact that the Tottenham chief, Daniel Levy is popular for his toughness.
Speaking about Levy, Ambrose said; “I think they’re way off the mark there. For anyone normal you are looking at £150million-plus. But, Daniel Levy you are probably looking at half a billion. I don’t think £90million gets you anywhere near.”
Thus, when Man City really tables a bid for Harry Kane, it will not be for £90m. The Etihad landlords are popular for not shying away from throwing cash around.
