Pep Guardiola refused to be drawn on whether Manchester City will look to sign Tottenham striker Harry Kane.

England captain Kane has reportedly told Spurs he wants to leave in the summer, with City quickly installed as bookmakers’ favourites to sign him. Some reports even suggest Kane has determined that a transfer to City represents his best chance of winning silverware that has so far eluded him in North London.

City are in the market for a new striker in the summer, with Sergio Aguero leaving after the Champions League final, but Guardiola dismissed any questions about signing Kane after seeing his side beaten by Brighton on Tuesday.

When asked if City are interested in Kane, he said: “No comment. A player from Tottenham.”

A further question about a possible transfer elicited a similar response, as Guardiola regularly refuses to speak about players of other clubs while they are under contract.

“Next question,” the manager said. “He’s a Tottenham Hotspurs player. Please.”

Guardiola did expand on his side’s performance at Brighton, with City forced to play 80 minutes with ten men.

“The game 11 vs 11, Brighton are a fantastic team, difficult to face. With 10-10 more difficult. We defend well first half, second half after 0-2 we concede the goal so quick, after we push a lot, were tired, couldn’t keep the ball as much as possible. We could not do it. We lost the game, congratulations to Brighton.”

And Guardiola was not having any suggestion that City’s momentum has been slowed ahead of the Champions League final, now just two games away.

“We break the record for 12 [away wins] in a row. In five days, Sunday with 10,000 fans, we lift the trophy. We try to win, after we prepare for Champions League.

“We’re the champions, in five days we lift the trophy and prepare the final. The opponents are so tough, I saw incredible things today 10 vs 11 in the Premier League. The way they press, defend deep, set pieces are so good. We knew it. They will react quite well.

“We are fortunate to lift the trophy. In 38 years, we did it ourselves, nobody gives us anything. How difficult is the Premier League again, we prepare as best as possible the Champions League final. We’re concerned to try to win but you can’t imagine how happy we are to try to win.”
