Reputed Sky Sports Pundit Claims Tottenham Superstar Is Worth More Than £198m

Published

on

Tottenham striker Harry Kane would command a bigger transfer fee than Neymar but Spurs should never entertain any thoughts of selling him, says Sky Sports pundit Tony Gale (Sky Sports). The 24-year-old England international has been in sensational form for both, his club and his country, scoring 13 goals in the month of September alone. 

His hot scoring streak caught the eye of Spanish Hollywood club – sorry all Real Madrid fans but this is what you are – who are ready to bid for his services. Spanish media outlet Don Balon (h/t Express) reported that Real Madrid are ready to pay £177m for the forward to lure him away from the White Hart Lane. 

However, Gale feels that Spurs need to keep Kane, as he is the type of star power required to take them forward. With the new stadium set to be opened from next season, Gale opines that the presence of Kane will be crucial for Spurs to write a new chapter. 

Should they decide to sell their prized asset, Gale believes that Kane would command more than the £198million that Paris Saint-Germain paid to sign Neymar from Barcelona this summer! 

“The temptation is that if they sell him, that will pay for the new stadium,” he said. “But you want the best players to play in the new stadium and he’s one of the best strikers in the world at the moment. 

“They’d be mad to sell him, you’ve got to build everything around him and give him what Real Madrid would pay him. 

“I think he’s worth more than Neymar. Harry’s got goals in him and goals are the thing.” 

How do the two players compare? Neymar is widely considered as one of the best players in the world, along with Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. Having moved out of Messi’s shadow, the Brazilian has hit the ground running in Paris, netting 8 goals and 7 assists in his first 8 appearances. 

Kane is definitely one of the best strikers, if not the best, in the Premier League. He consistently stays in the top three of the goalscorers list every season and that is a phenomenal indication of his consistency and form. 

Does that warrant a comparison with Neymar and can he eclipse the world record fee? I don’t think the transfer fee is a barometer of a player’s ability in the current inflated markets. Even if Kane does smash the record, it should be seen in isolation but not in comparison with Neymar. 

Let us all enjoy the goal scoring exploits of Kane and hope that he stays with the club until his retirement.
