Harry Kane urged to move to Real Madrid by Jonathan Woodgate
Speaking to Stadium Astro (h/t AS English), former Tottenham Hotspur defender Jonathan Woodgate has urged Harry Kane to consider switching to Real Madrid if he wants to be considered at the same level as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
A product of the Tottenham youth academy, Kane has grown into one of the best strikers in the game over the past five-six years. A prolific goalscorer, the England captain has scored over 250 career goals for club and country. But, he is yet to win a major silverware in his career.
And Woodgate, who played for both Tottenham and Real Madrid during his career, has insisted that Kane needs to move to the Spanish capital club, in order to win silverware and reach the heights of icons like Messi and Ronaldo.
“If Real Madrid come in for you – especially Harry Kane – he has got to go. If he wants to win trophies and get onto that next pedestal of Messi, Ronaldo and that type of player, he has to go.”
Woodgate further insisted that Tottenham are still some way away from being able to challenge for the Premier League or the Champions League. And he would have a better chance at winning trophies in Madrid.
“I don’t see him winning the league at Spurs, not this season and not in the next few seasons. They have got too much building to do to get up there with Liverpool and Man City. For me, if he wants to win the European Cup, then he has got a chance of winning it at Real Madrid.”

Kane sparked speculations last year when he said that if he felt the club wasn’t headed in the right direction, he would consider leaving. However, under Jose Mourinho, Tottenham have made it to the finals of the Carabao Cup and are just four points off of leaders Liverpool in the league.
The England captain has attracted interest from Manchester City of late. But, if we go on to win trophies this term, it is hard to see him leaving the club.
