For all those in Madrid dreaming to land Harry Kane as their next ‘Galactico’, this should bring them back crashing to the earth. Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is sure to slap a price on his star forward that would drive the Los Blancos away from a bid.

According to latest reports in The Times, Tottenham are ready to drive the asking price to more than the £200m that Paris Saint-Germain paid to Barcelona for the services of Brazilian forward Neymar this summer.

This follows news in certain Spanish media sections that Real Madrid could be looking at making Kane their top transfer target for next summer. Real Madrid president Florentino Perez wants Kane to be a part of Zinedine Zidane’s squad as he builds the next generation squad to rule Europe.

However, it is being reported that Spurs are not willing to listen to any offers for their top star although they have sold Luka Modric and Gareth Bale in the past. We’ve have come a long way from being the selling club that we were when Modric and Bale joined Real Madrid.

So, will the Spanish giants be interested in shelling out £200m? French striker Karim Benzema is currently the lead forward at the Santiago Bernabeu. The media keeps saying that Madrid could be looking at replacing him as a striker, which means they could look out for alternatives.

But, whatever the media says, Benzema is a favourite among the supporters, players, manager Zidane and even president Perez. There is hardly anything within the club that suggests that Benzema could be on his way out. Going by his age too, the 29-year-old Benzema still has a lot of time left at the highest level – at least 2-3 seasons more. That said, Real Madrid may not be interested in signing someone at £200m only to make him work as a backup striker.

Moreover, there are no reasons to suggest that Kane would consider any such move. The England international has time and again stated that he sees himself at Tottenham for a long time and given the direction the club are heading in and his own personal form, a move away, even to Real Madrid, is just not on the cards at the present. So, all these talks of a mega money move to the Spanish capital seem quite pointless.

He’s one of our own!

  1. If they want him they’ll get him will they? I’m sure the player and his club will have a say in that. The days of Barca and Madrid getting whoever they want are gone. Liverpool showed they could bat Barca off. Tottenham signed Sanchez when Barca wanted him. PSG paid out Neymar’s clause like it was pocket change. Kane doesn’t want to leave so Madrid can want all the like.

  2. It is always kinda sad when someone compare one thing to another as though both are exactly the same due to a total inability to see the many different and the many changed circumstances.

    Far from “getting him if they want him” I don’t even think they would get him if they offered the type of ridiculously inflated fees being suggested. Firstly because Levy just won’t accept bids as selling makes little sense, financial or otherwise. Secondly, because Kane has zero interest in moving.
