Harry Kane has found his goal scoring boots and was on a tear prior to the international break. After a barren spell in August, our hitman has now taken his club tally to 11 goals in all competitions.
The 24-year-old is a two-time golden boot winner and it is no surprise that a host of other clubs have been looking to get their hands on him. Real Madrid are interested in the lethal striker and there have been reports of a possible €200million offer for the Englishman.
The Independent reports that Tottenham have no wish to sell the star man but Kane did suggest that he could play abroad sometime in the future. Speaking while on England duty, the 24-year-old said:
“I would never say no,” when asked if he would play outside England, as quoted by Independent.
“I would never say yes. I think in football, you never know and you never rule out anything. It is not something that I definitely want to do but it could happen. You just never know.”
The striker was quick to add that he was happy at Tottenham and said that he’s focused.
“Like you said, at the moment, I am very happy where I am here – that is all that matters. We will see what happens, but for now that is all I am focusing on.”
While Kane is still our star, Real Madrid or any of the other top clubs in the world could put forward a package that might be hard for our board and the Englishman to resist.
The 24-year-old reportedly earns close to £120,000 a week, after taking in bonuses, which is possibly the best pay package Tottenham can provide to their best players. We have heard of a number of stories where players want more but Daniel Levy and the board are relenting on crazy wages since it could destabilise the club’s finances.
Madrid or even Manchester United could easily double or triple Kane’s wages and we can never deal with that or even match that at the moment. Should they decide to put up a bid higher than what PSG paid for Brazilian superstar Neymar, it would be tough to say no.
However, one thing that is working for us at the moment is that our team is playing great football and Kane is having the time of his life. Should we be able to win a trophy or two in this season or the next, the Englishman should remain with us but a barren spell for a few years could turn his head around.
