Real Madrid plan shock move to make £90m Premier League star their next Galactico Signing
After clinching his second successive Premier League Golden Boot with back to back hattricks at the end of the season, it is no surprise that Harry Kane is wanted by some of Europe’s biggest clubs.
The Tottenham striker helped his side beat Leicester 6-1 at the King Power Stadium on Thursday, before repeating the trick at the KCOM Stadium, where Spurs won 7-1 on Sunday. In total, the 23-year-old scored 29 goals in 30 games, overtaking fellow highly-rated striker Romelu Lukaku in the race to be top scorer.
Spurs missed out on the title for the second successive season, with Chelsea winning a second in three years. It will be Mauricio Pochettino’s aim to build on the young, talented squad he has, but he will have to battle to keep it together. Goal is reporting that Real Madrid have cast an eye over his development and are willing to spend £90million to lure him to the Santiago Bernabeu.

Of course, Los Blancos are no strangers to shopping at White Hart Lane for big names. In 2012, they parted with £33million to sign Luka Modric, while a year later they broke to world transfer record to snare Gareth Bale for £86million. Although Paul Pogba took the accolade when he swapped Juventus for Manchester United for £89million last summer, any deal for Kane would mean Real would have to break it again.
But Spurs will also be on alert as to not lose any of their main players this summer, and not just Kane either. Modric and Bale are not the only quality players the club have sold in the past, with Michael Carrick and Dimitar Berbatov joining United at different times too. The Red Devils have been heavily linked with Danny Rose, Kyle Walker and Eric Dier, while City are keen on Walker and Dele Alli, all of whom have been in fine form this season.
But Real will be looking to improve after winning their first LaLiga title in five years under Zinedine Zidane. They could also be the first team to retain the Champions League in the modern era, should they beat Italian champions Juventus in the final next week. All of this has happened in Zidane’s first full season in charge.
Kane is unlikely to push for a move from Spurs, certainly not this summer, so it may take a lot for the Spanish giants to get their man.
