Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has today put an end to swirling rumours linking Tottenham’s star striker Harry Kane with a move to the Spanish super club, according to ESPN.

The England international and current Premier League top scorer has been the subject of multiple news stories in recent weeks suggesting that he will make the switch to Real Madrid. However Florentino Perez cast away these rumours when he told media: “He is a magnificent player, he is young and has many years to progress. But we are delighted not just with Benzema, but with all the players that we have.”

Last week Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy reportedly suggested that any club wishing to sign Kane from the North London club would have to pay a similar figure to the one PSG paid for Brazilian sensation Neymar in the summer. The Parisian club smashed the world transfer record when they paid £200m for the winger, so Kane would likely cost something similar.

Goalscoring comes easy for the talented striker and Kane has won consecutive Premier League Golden Boot awards and already tops the scoring charts this season with eight goals in nine games. In total the Englishman has scored 112 goals in 177 games across all competitions for Tottenham and will certainly increase that tally in the weeks ahead.
