We know Manchester City wants Harry Kane and after losing to Chelsea in the Champions League final, likely only want the striker more. However, the names being dropped to come in exchange for Kane simply are not good enough, why would Tottenham want City’s spare parts? Neither Gabriel Jesus nor Nathan Ake is going to make Tottenham better and they are not wanted at City, so why should Spurs take them?
Right positions wrong pieces
Manchester City is really trying to pull one over on Steve Hitchen and Daniel Levy if they believe Gabriel Jesus and Nathaniel Ake are going to help make weight for the best striker in the league. Tottenham would be much better off with the cash value of the two players and of course more cash.
Currently according to transfermrkt.com Ake is worth $35.2 million (£24.8 million) and Jesus is worth some $66.0 million (£46.5 million). Sure they are some valuable footballers in two positions of need, striker and left center-back but these are not the right guys. However, according to the Express.co.uk, they are the package being eyed up by City and Tottenham.
