The first thing to say about this Harry Kane story in The Sun is that it’s objectively funny that a showbiz reporter has produced the football transfer scoop of the summer just by going to a wedding at which the groom was using his nuptials to share the news that his brother (Harry Kane) had been given the go-ahead to leave for £160m by Daniel Levy. That the newspaper’s actual football reporters then had to write as if that were all unquestionably true – regardless of their own contacts – makes that doubly funny.
We have detailed elsewhere that all the particulars seem believable, but what The Sun’s story stops short of saying – either by accident or design – is whether City are actually going to spend that £160m. And that’s quite important. It seems that Clemmie Moodie either did not ask or was not told that information.
