Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has said Tottenham rejected the club’s bid to sign Harry Kane.
He said City had to forget about the plan to sign Kane after several attempts to have the England international striker were turn down by Spurs.
City has now had to play the season without a proper striker.
“I never was, in my 11 or 12 years, disappointed in what the club cannot do in the transfer market.
“I’ve never created a fire here because I represent the club and the club is always beyond myself by far.
“We tried [to sign Kane] but it was far away to be done because Tottenham was clear this is not going to happen. And when it happens two, three, four times, it’s over.
“The club gave me players and I’m always delighted – and it’s then what we can do together. Maybe if we had a proper striker we would play with a striker but with the players we have, we have to adapt,” Guardiola told a press conference on Friday.
