Former Reds captain claims Tottenham star is ready for Real Madrid – backs him to become first £200m player

Published

Harry Kane has to be the best striker in the world, at least based on his form for Tottenham over the last three seasons or so. The 24-year-old has been on fire this campaign too and has scored 31 times in 32 games in all competitions. So it should come as no surprise that a number of top clubs are keeping track of our star player.

Real Madrid have often been linked with a move for the Englishman and even though we have been able to keep him in our side, there is no dearth of opinions or rumours which suggest that Kane’s future is not in London.

The latest to join this bandwagon is former Liverpool star Graeme Souness. The former Reds captain shared his opinion for the Times and claimed that Kane is ready to make the big jump and play for Real Madrid.

“I believe that Harry Kane should leave for Real Madrid this summer, if he gets the chance. The fee Real will have to pay for Kane will start with a two and be followed by eight zeros. I reckon that he could become the first £200m player.

“They will pay that premium because putting the ball in the back of the net regularly is the hardest thing to do in football and, given his age, Kane should only get better. When Real come calling, they usually get who they want. Yes, Kylian Mbappe signed for PSG for £165m from Monaco, but how badly did Real want him?”

 

Another player who has been constantly linked with a move away from Tottenham is Dele Alli but Souness claims that the youngster is not ready to make the big leap while Kane is close to being the finished article.

“Kane’s ready for Real Madrid, but Dele Alli isn’t. I’ve seen a definite improvement in Kane since he came into Tottenham’s team, but not to the same extent in Alli. Similarly, Real Madrid can’t be considering Mauricio Pochettino based on what he’s won. His publicity is great and he’s deemed to have done a good job at Tottenham, but if he’s being touted for the manager’s job at Real it tells me there’s a lack of candidates.”

Real have had a poor season so far and look set to miss out on the La Liga title as they trail Barcelona by 18 points. The Galacticos would be looking to spend big money in the summer and it would not be a surprise if Kane gets linked with a big-money move to Spain.

For our side, we have to keep hold of Kane at all costs if we are to even think of winning the Premier League title. The 24-year-old is a world-class player and we have to build our side around him, something that Mauricio Pochettino and even Daniel Levy would know.
