Tottenham will not start any negotiation for the sale of Harry Kane at less than £178million amidst strong Real Madrid interest, according to reports. Spanish publication Marca claim that it will take a colossal sum to even bring Spurs chairman Daniel Levy to discuss the possibility of the mercurial striker leaving the club.
Kane is certainly liked by the Bernabeu hierarchy who value his progression and his age (just 24), and they have personal reports on him which suggest that he would be an ideal team player, a proper replacement for the ageing Karim Benzema.
At just 24 years of age, the England international has undoubtedly become one of the world’s biggest superstars and the way he has developed to break the Premier League record for most goals scored in a calendar year with back-to-back hat-tricks in the last week is simply phenomenal.
Mauricio Pochettino is correct in asserting that Kane is priceless. The England international has already scored 24 goals for his club in 24 matches this season.
“I think it’s not good to compare. I think Harry doesn’t have a price. We want him here. I think we can talk about many things, but at the end it’s talk for talk, because it’s impossible to put a price. He’s out of the market,” Pochettino was quoted by Football.london.
“It’s easy for me. I say knock on Daniel Levy’s door. Go to see Daniel, not me. Easy for me, maybe for Daniel more difficult.”
When asked if Kane will be a one-club man like Alan Shearer, Poch said:
“Yes, I think Alan will know better than me because he’s English and the mentality, he will know better about the English mentality. Maybe it’s possible that he can be this way, like Totti and Roma. Of course, we’d be more than happy, us and the fans, because Harry is a fantastic player and professional. Yes, why not?”
It’s an open secret Zinedine Zidane admires Kane and wants the England international join his forces at Real Madrid. But if the Real gaffer thinks he will join in January, then there is zero chance for the striker leaving the North Londoners.
Kane is undisputedly our best player, in the best form of his life, banging goals left, right and centre, and crucial to the team’s chances of securing a top-four finish and advancing through the Champions League knockout phases. If Real Madrid are planning to get him anytime soon, then let them keep dreaming.
