Harry Kane Deal is Dead, Manchester City Have No Back Up Plan

The disaster is happening.

The deal is dead. Harry Kane took to Twitter to announce he will stay at Spurs for this season and beyond-

The saga concluded with frankly, a whimper. No juice, no real progress and perhaps worst of all, no back up plan.

Manchester City is now left scrambling as they will try maybe, to sign Cristiano Ronaldo to save face. There is also the distinct possibility that City sign no one at all.

City being so confident in this deal and pursuing no others including Leo Messi and Romelu Lukaku just baffles the mind.

What was the thought process behind this? Were they really so sure they didn't even look for an alternative? The Vlahovic deal seemed pure chatter to scare Spurs in to accepting as he was their primary if Kane left.

Now, we are left with no striker with less than a week before the window closes.

Could it be Ronaldo or bust?

We’ll find out soon.
