Manchester City will be better off signing Chelsea youngster Tammy Abraham instead of Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane, that’s according to Trevor Sinclair who spoke to TalkSPORT (via Sports Bible).
The former City and West Ham United winger believes Abraham would be available at a much lower price than Kane, who may cost close to £150 million.
Moreover, Pep Guardiola would be able to work on the younger Abraham and mold him into a world-class player.
Sinclair said: “He's a young enough player, and with Pep Guardiola's coaching ability and the teammates around him, he'll be a top player.
“The season he had at Aston Villa and then he went back to Chelsea and did very well.”
Trevor Sinclair also said that the Chelsea academy graduate is a natural finisher and could be an interesting signing for Man City if he goes to the Etihad, noting:
“He's a handful, his pace, he looks to stretch the lines; he's a finisher.
“No player's perfect, especially at 22 or 23, but there's a lot of growth there with Tammy.
“He'd be someone I'd be very interested to see at Manchester City.”
Sinclair continued: “It just goes against my principles of what I think about the club. Honestly, it really does.
“I just don't want to see the club going out there and spending that ridiculous amount of money to bring one player in. That just kills it then. You might as well pack up.”
