MANCHESTER CITY are offering Raheem Sterling AND Gabriel Jesus to Tottenham in a bid to land Harry Kane.
The Premier League champions are so desperate to beat neighbours United and Euro conquerors Chelsea to the England skipper that they will let both stars go in part-exchange.

City is his preferred destination and he recently revealed the top-flight star he would most like to play alongside is Etihad ace Kevin de Bruyne.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy, under fire from their own fans after yet another season without a trophy and his involvement in the botched European Super League bid, is determined to keep his most prized asset, who still has three years remaining on his current contract.
He hopes bringing back former boss Mauricio Pochettino will persuade Kane to stay at the club.

But Levy knows it may not be enough to prevent the Prem’s 23-goal Golden Boot winner from leaving so he has slapped a whopping £150million price tag on the player’s head.
City hope to offset some of that fee by using Sterling and Jesus as bait in a bid to seal a deal for Kane.
Etihad boss Pep Guardiola is prepared to let both players go this summer as he looks to freshen up his squad following their 1-0 defeat to Chelsea in Saturday’s Champions League final.
Sterling scored 15 goals in all competitions this season, but has fallen down the pecking order behind rising superstar Phil Foden.
The former Liverpool ace, 26, joined City for £44m in July 2015 and has two years left on his current £300,000-a-week contract.
But the wages are not the only obstacle for Spurs – with Arsenal leading the chase for the Three Lions winger.
Londoner Sterling had a trial with the Gunners and nearly joined them before Liverpool signed him from QPR’s youth team for £600,000 in August 2010.
Jesus finished the season as City’s joint-top scorer with 23 goals in all competitions, alongside Sergio Aguero.

But the Brazilian, 24, is still not widely regarded as their first-choice striker – and if Kane joins he will be understudy again.
So Jesus might fancy a move to Spurs in order to play more regularly.
And his current £90,000 a week pay at City means wages, even with an increase, would not be an issue for Tottenham.
