Mauricio Pochettino Open To Selling Harry Kane To Real Madrid But Wants £350,000-a-week Star In Return

Harry Kane

We have heard a lot in this matter already this summer, but every new report is a surprise. But, the latest reports that indicate that Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino is open to the idea of swapping Harry Kane with Gareth Bale is a huge surprise!

Not least because of Pochettino and Daniel Levy’s insistence that even a world record bid for the star forward will not be enough to push them into a deal, also because it is believed in Tottenham circles that Kane is considered pivotal to their long-term plans.

This latest report in Don Balon takes me by surprise. The report talks about Pochettino being more open to selling Kane than what has been claimed.

However, the report states the Argentine manager would be willing to consider the deal only if Bale is allowed to move the other way. It has been a common theme through the summer that Bale could be making his way out of the Santiago Bernabeu next summer.

It is believed that Tottenham have the first option of signing Bale if he ever leaves Madrid as a part of the deal that took him to the Bernabeu in the first place. The Welsh winger has failed to convince the critics of his worth and was always viewed as being on the periphery of the Spanish giants.

To add to that, Bale, who earns a whopping £350,000-a-week, has struggled with his injuries every season and has cut a frustrating figure at the club. There is reported exasperation within the club management that Bale may not be able to regain his best fitness ever.

Even this season, he has struggled with injuries and has not played since the end of September. He has since returned to training but was not in the squad that faced Sevilla in the weekend.

With Madrid reportedly prioritising a move for Neymar, Bale could be on the way out. Not just that, Madrid may look at adding Kane too, who is making waves with his prolific goal scoring record.

Should we go for this swap deal? I don’t mind Bale coming back to the club but letting Kane go in return is not something I am comfortable with. However, if Kane’s exit is a given, then better trade him off to another league and not to a Premier League rival.
