Pep Guardiola and Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Pep Guardiola has asked the Manchester City board to “investigate the possibility” of signing Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane, according to the Independent.

The Catalan coach recently signed a two-year contract extension with the Premier League club and during his negotiations, he “namechecked” Kane as a potential signing.

The 27-year-old is said to be willing to consider his future in north London if Spurs fail to win a trophy this season.

Kane played a key role in defeating Guardiola’s City side at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday evening.
