Exclusive: Fabrizio Romano Opens Up On Man City's Harry Kane Transfer Strategy

Fabrizio Romano has told City Xtra that Manchester City's negotiations with Tottenham for Harry Kane are currently like a "poker game."

Speaking in an exclusive interview with the City Xtra on Wednesday afternoon, Romano has revealed that that the Blues' strategy was "so clear" and that the Premier League Champions are "not giving up on a deal" to sign the 28 year-old striker. 

Kane, who has been seeking a move away from Spurs since the start of the summer, now faces the prospect of coming up against Manchester City on Sunday, when the two sides meet on the opening weekend of the Premier League season.

The England and Spurs captain returned to Spurs training this week, after initially failing to turn-up, in an attempt to force a move to the reigning Premier League Champions.
