Gary Neville: Man City would win league easily with Harry Kane

Former Manchester United captain Gary Neville has said that if Manchester City had been able to sign Harry Kane over the summer, they would lift the Premier League comfortably.

During the recent transfer window, the Citizens were heavily associated with the England captain, but were unable to persuade Tottenham Hotspur to move their star player.

Man City came from behind twice in the Premier League to draw 2-2 with Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday, but Pep Guardiola's side struggled to test Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker for lengthy periods.

If the defending champions could persuade Spurs to sell Kane this summer, Neville believes the league would be "done."

"I know Pep likes to play with a team of midfielders, but there is that doubt that exists only through them lacking a striker. If Manchester City had Harry Kane, I'm telling you now this league is done," Neville said on the Gary Neville Podcast.

"It would be done. Forget the form that Kane is currently in. Against Liverpool with those City players, he'd have definitely taken one of those chances in the first half. He's gold, so he'd remove any doubt that I have about City."

Man City are now in third place in the Premier League, one point behind Liverpool and two points behind champions Chelsea as the international break approaches.
