The end of Segio Sergio Aguero's time at the Etihad has massive implications for the futures of Harry Kane and Erling Erling Braut Haaland.

What the papers say

Manchester City are considering making an offer for Tottenham's Harry Kane if they are unable to sign Erling Haaland in the summer, the Times reports. The 27-year-old England international is significantly older than the Norwegian forward, 20, but the paper notes he has a proven record in the Premier League with 160 goals in 234 appearances.

Elsewhere, however, there is greater optimism of the Blues signing Haaland after Sergio Aguero leaves at the season's end. The youngster has scored 49 goals in as many appearances for Borussia Dortmund and the Manchester Evening News says City are confident they will welcome him as Aguero's "successor" in the summer.

Jack Grealish is reportedly likely to be the loser from City's desire to sign Haaland. Aston Villa value their 25-year-old captain at £100 million, an amount that the Telegraph reports the Citizens will not have spare if they bring Haaland across from Germany. But there is a possibility that Villa may struggle to hold onto the England midfielder if the club fails to qualify for Europe this campaign.

Another player attracting interest on the continent and in England is Aguero. Manchester United and Chelsea have made offers for the 32-year-old Argentina striker, while Paris St-Germain and Inter Milan are also interested, according to the Star which cites French outlet Foot Mercato.
