Former Manchester United centre-back Rio Ferdinand claims that Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane might have missed his chance to join Manchester City.

Former Manchester United centre-back Rio Ferdinand has suggested that Harry Kane might have missed his chance to join Manchester City.

Kane has been consistently linked with a move away from Tottenham Hotspur in recent years, with the 27-year-old said to be fearful that he could end his career without winning either the Premier League or Champions League.

Man City are expected to move for a new striker this summer amid claims that their all-time leading goalscorer Sergio Aguero could leave following the expiration of his contract.

Ferdinand has said that Pep Guardiola's side could now favour a move for Erling Braut Haaland, who has scored 31 goals in 30 appearances for Borussia Dortmund during another impressive campaign.

"I think a season or two ago Harry Kane would have been the first choice for them because he can play that number 10 role and he can come deep and become part of the midfield and create extra numbers in there,' Ferdinand told BT Sport.

"I think now the age may be a concern and the actual price tag he is going to come with. When you have got people like Haaland it is a different proposition in terms of longevity to build around for a number of years."

Haaland is also believed to be a target for Man United, Chelsea, Juventus, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Bayern Munich ahead of this summer's transfer window.

Sunday's key events

· The men's golf reaches its conclusion, with plenty of players still in medal contention. Home favourite Hideki Matsuyama is one shot off Xander Schauffele's lead, while Great Britain's Paul Casey is another shot further back and Tommy Fleetwood is also in the mix (11.30pm-8am)

· Great Britain have already made history in the BMX events in Tokyo, something Charlotte Worthington and Declan Brooks will be looking to add to in the women's (2.10am) and men's (3.10am) freestyle finals

· The final day of swimming action begins with the men's 50m freestyle final. Ben Proud could add to a medal-laden Games in the pool for Team GB so far, although he is up against USA's Caeleb Dressel, who is going for his fourth gold in Tokyo (2.30am)
· From sprint to endurance, Great Britain's second medal hope of the day comes through Daniel Jervis in the men's 1500m freestyle final (2.44am)
· Team GB will again be among the heavy favourites for gold in the last swimming event of the Games - the men's 4x100m medley relay final - having won the mixed event in a world record time on Saturday (3.36am)

· Already guaranteed at least a bronze, Pat McCormack takes part in the men's welterweight semi-final against Ireland's Aidan Walsh with a spot in the gold medal final at stake (4.03am)
· Ben Whittaker is also in the semi-finals of the men's light heavyweight and will be looking to continue Team GB's success in the ring (4.51am)

· There will be a surprise on the top of the men's tennis podium after Novak Djokovic missed out on a medal altogether. Alexander Zverev takes on Karen Khachanov in the second match on Centre Court at the Ariake Tennis Park (7am-2pm)

· Alison Young will be going for gold in the women's laser radial medal race (7.33am)

· Team GB's Max Whitlock will look to defend his 2016 Olympic title in the men's pommel horse final (10.41am)

· The men's high jump final includes GB's Tom Gale, although his chances of a medal look bleak (11.10am)
· So often the blue-riband event of the Olympics, the men's 100m final takes place as the world's fastest bid to be crowned Usain Bolt's successor. Three Brits have made it into the semi-finals (11.15am-11.32am), and the final looks wide open after an underwhelming display by favourite Trayvon Bromell on Saturday (1.50pm)

· Great Britain face India in the men's quarter-final (1pm)
