Real Madrid are taking the possibility of making a bid for Harry Kane into some serious consideration, and are prepared to offer Tottenham a sum of £177 million for his services, according to Don Balon.
Kane has emerged as one of the most coveted strikers in the world at the moment, and the incredible numbers he is putting up on the statistics board are drawing sensational comparisons with the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
It has only been a few years since Kane burst onto the scene for Spurs in the Europa League, and having quelled fears that he would just turn out to be a ‘one season wonder,’ the Englishman has put up incredibly consistent displays over the past couple of seasons, and is quickly becoming recognized among the world’s best players.
Hence, it is no surprise to see that Real are interested in the striker, who has a sensational record of 36 goals in 31 appearances so far throughout 2017. He is already flying in the new season as well, having found the net 13 times for club and country combined so far.
Kane is being tipped as a replacement for Karim Benzema, who just recently put pen to paper for the reigning Champions League winners as well as the defending La Liga champions, on a four-year deal which is set to expire in 2022.
Despite him being a firm Zinedine Zidane favourite, rumour has it that Los Blancos are willing to let him go next summer, and if it helps facilitate a move for Kane, then the club is all the more likelier to cut ties with the Frenchman, who has become sort of a guinea pig amongst the Real fans lately.
What remains to be seen is whether Kane will decide to stay at Spurs, or favour a move to Spain. It is only so often in a player’s career that a club like Real comes calling, and former Spurs stars Luka Modric and Gareth Bale had no hesitation in saying yes to this switch when it presented itself in front of them.
If the 24-year-old decides he wants the move, Real know that they have to be ready for the toughest part of the entire transfer – negotiating with Daniel Levy. The Tottenham chairman is known to be as hard as nails, and reports suggest that he will demand a fee close to Neymar’s record-breaking £198 million transfer record.
The fee being assumed for now ranges close to £177 million, but in the end, the final value will be totally down to Levy, who will also be wary about the fall-backs of losing one of the club’s most prized assets to the same old Spanish giants for the third time.
