Harry Kane is the toast of Europe right now, after his goal burst in September. The England international striker scored 13 goals in the month (for his club and country) across competitions to become one of the most explosive strikers in the world.
That has seen him get linked with top European clubs and Spanish media outlet Don Balon (h/t Express) claim that Florentino Perez is looking at making a bid of €200m (£177m) for the striker.
The 24-year-old’s form is one of the primary reasons why Tottenham Hotspur have managed to come back in the Premier League title race. After a slow start to the season, Mauricio Pochettino’s men find themselves in 3rd position with 14 points from 7 matches.
Spurs are still 5 points off the early pace-setters Manchester City and Manchester United but with Kane in such scoring form, Tottenham are never far-off in the title race.
For Madrid, it is a case of win-win as they look to assemble their next generation ‘Galactico’. Karim Benzema is uncertain of his future at the Santiago Bernabeu while question marks are hovering around the Welsh winger Gareth Bale’s future as well.
Madrid had, in the past, tried to go behind Paulo Dybala of Juventus and Antoine Griezmann of Atletico Madrid without success. The Spanish capital club always makes it a point to go after the top players and their intention of signing Kane is a signal of how good the striker is.
Tottenham value the striker so much and have already made him the top earner at the club alongside club captain Hugo Lloris. Spurs have always maintained that they will not entertain any bids for Kane. Even the player has indicated that he loves playing for Tottenham and that he is focused on winning titles under Mauricio Pochettino.
So, what is all this fuss about? Whenever a Tottenham player performs, the media goes into overdrive, linking him to top clubs in England and Europe. If these reports are to be believed, Kane would have ended up at Madrid or United a long time ago. Let’s hope the player trashes these reports just like you and I did!
