Harry Kane to Real Madrid?


Not to be outdone by rivals Barcelona in the spending department, Real Madrid are apparently planning a €200m move for Tottenham striker Harry Kane, according to the Guardian.

The world-class England forward would follow in the footsteps of Welsh winger Gareth Bale in making the switch from North London to the Spanish capital. Kane has 13 goals in eight games for club and country this month after recovering once again from his August goal curse. The striker is one goal behind Romelu Lukaku in the Premier League Golden Boot standings after two goals in a dominant performance against Huddersfield at the weekend, and this interest from Real Madrid further cements his world-class status.

Karim Benzema is the Spanish super club’s current starting striker, but the Frenchman has never really been a hugely popular figure at the Santiago Bernabéu for whatever reason. He is often overshadowed by the club’s other superstars like Ronaldo and Bale, but Benzema’s goal-scoring record for the Galácticos is impressive and he is an important part of their devastating strike force.

However the 29-year old will probably make way if Harry Kane were to make the move to Madrid, and with his supreme talent and even better players around him Kane’s game would hit a whole new height in Spain.
