Harry Kane was strongly linked with a move to Manchester City in the summer, but his approach was rejected by Tottenham.
An initial bid of £120million is understood to have been rejected, as Spurs chairman Daniel Levy wanted to stay out for £150m.
One move at the end failed to materialize, but that may not be the end of the Cane to City saga.
Reports this morning suggested City were still ‘interested’ in a move from Kane.
And with an additional £55m in the bank following the sale of Ferran Torres to Barcelona, Citizens could revive their interest with a better bid.
Pep Guardiola is missing an out-and-out striker to lead the line, and may be looking to fill his void at the top of the pitch.
Here SunSport takes a look at how a star-studded Manchester City might look to line up when Kane is brought into the club.
City’s defense is set fairly well, with Aymeric Laporte and Ruben Dias being the first choice centre-backs in front of Ederson.

Then full-backs Kyle Walker, Joao Cancillo and Oleksandr Zinchenko are in a three-way rotation for two places.
When it comes to midfield and attack, it becomes difficult for Guardiola to shoe-horn all of City’s talent.
Kane can potentially move Jack Grealish to his left and Bernardo Silva to his right.
And if that’s not enough to intimidate defenses in the Premier League and beyond, they’ll be followed by Kevin de Bruyne, Ilke Gundogan and the ever-reliable Rodri.
But Guardiola is spoiled for choice, as that opening side would mean the dropping of England pair of Raheem Sterling and Phil Foden.
If he chose to include Sterling and Foden, City’s front three could be representative of the Lions, with Kane leading the attack.
He would see Grealish drop to the bench and Bernardo pushed back into midfield.
Or alternatively, Guardiola could choose to play both Grealish and Foden on the same team, as he has done several times this season.
But Grealish is employed as a false-nine, which will no longer be necessary when Kane arrives.
If that were the case, Kane would play from the middle, Foden on the left and Grealish back in midfield.
And just to turn things around, Guardiola may decide to operate Riyad Mahrez with the right hand.
