Real Madrid plot STUNNING £150million move for Europe's hottest property
Real Madrid have earmarked Harry Kane as the man they want to sign next summer and are gearing up to bid a staggering £150million for the England striker next summer.
Kane has become one of the world’s best strikers over the past three years or so, showing just how good he is in a Tottenham shirt. He has helped them into the Champions League for the last two years and has also spearheaded title challenges; he is even predicted to overtake Alan Shearer’s Premier League goalscoring record of 260 if he stays fit and remains in England.
Although he is on a long contract with his boyhood club and has never once indicated he would like to leave Spurs, both his and the club’s resolve will likely be tested by Los Blancos, who have shown on so many occasions before they get their man more often than not with Luka Modric and Gareth Bale both heading to the Santiago Bernabeu from Spurs in 2012 and 2013 respectively. This one could be their toughest task yet.
Reports of their interest are in the Mirror, but the Times are suggesting Spurs will only negotiate if Real stump up £200million, more than the current world record transfer fee which PSG paid Barcelona for Neymar in the summer. It seems as though Zinedine Zidane is intent on spending big this summer, having not done that in the two off-season windows he has had as boss since taking the reigns in 2016.
With Bale struggling for fitness and popularity with fans, Karim Benzema far from prolific and Cristiano Ronaldo turning 33 next birthday, there is definitely room for more firepower at Real. Kane is the hottest property in England right now, possibly even Europe, so would certainly fit the bill as the next Galactico signing.
David Beckham, Steve McManaman, Bale and to an extent Michael Owen have all been successful at Real Madrid, and the fact he may have this opportunity could really take Kane’s game to a new level. His rise has been surprising because he was hardly viewed as a hot prospect as a youngster, but he has become arguably Spurs’ greatest Premier League player ever and they will surely do everything in their power to keep him.
