Manchester City appear to be suffering from something of a hangover since officially being crowned as Premier League champions just over a week ago. 

Pep Guardiola’s side stumbled to a 4-3 victory over Newcastle last Friday, with their usually reliable defence that has been so pivotal in their title win performing well below par.

They then followed that up with a 3-2 defeat to Brighton on Tuesday evening.

The Citizens went ahead twice but ultimately succumbed to defeat as Dan Burn netted the winner two minutes from time to give Brighton their first ever Premier League victory over City.

With the league title and EFL Cup in the bag and the Champions League final against Chelsea still to come, it appears that City are already planning ahead for next season.

According to The Guardian, the club are planning talks with Tottenham bosses about a potential deal for Harry Kane.

The England captain shocked the footballing world this week by reportedly telling Spurs that he wishes to depart the club during the upcoming transfer window.

The news sparked speculation linking the 27-year-old with a host of clubs in England and overseas, including Manchester City and United, Chelsea and Real Madrid.

City have emerged as the frontrunners, however, and the report now states that City bosses are planning talks to negotiate a deal.

Levy has already spoken of his reluctance to sell Kane

The biggest hurdle in the way of a potential deal will be chairman Daniel Levy’s reluctance to sell his prized asset.

Both City and Kane are reportedly well aware that Levy won’t want to sell the striker, however it is believed that a compromise could be reached.

City, who have already been in touch with Kane’s representatives, will lose record goalscorer Sergio Aguero in the summer and will want to replace the striker as soon as possible.

Having already scored over 160 Premier League goals, Kane is a proven goalscorer in the league and is seen by many as the perfect candidate.
