Harry Kane’s stupendous form in this season has already been the talk of the town. The English international has become the golden boy of the Premier League, having led Tottenham Hotspur single-handedly for the last couple of seasons.
His brilliance in the opposition box is no more a hidden facet and he has scored possibly every team his side has faced over the last couple of years. Given the prolific form he has been in, he is easily among the top three strikers in the world.
According to reports, Real Madrid are plotting a move for the 24-year-old. Kane showed his class in the recently contested Champions League encounter between the teams where the English international scored the solitary goal for his team which ended in a 1-1 stalemate.
Karim Benzema’s future at the Santiago Bernabeu has remained a matter of concern and Los Blancos are reportedly very eager to use him as bait in this deal.
They are very much aware of the fact they do have to splash a big amount, roughly in the range of £180m, to have any kind of a chance of landing the player. But Los Blancos want to use Benzema to reduce the asking price.
Zidane praised Kane prior to the Champions League match and the player also exchanged shirts with Cristiano Ronaldo which could be an indication to a future reunion.
Investing in Kane would be a considerably long-term investment and from Madrid’s perspective, he remains a viable option. Benzema will be entering the thirty-year age bracket soon and the Madrid hierarchy wants a relatively young player to be the face of the team.
Kane showed his admiration towards Ronaldo and he might get tempted to combine with his idol. “I asked for his shirt at the end. He was a big role model of mine growing up. It’s a nice shirt to get. I will frame it.
“It was a great night for us. One we can be proud of — the fans can be proud of. The whole club can be proud.”
He has been a vital part of Mauricio Pochettino’s plans and the gaffer would be reluctant to part ways with the player. Kane is one of the fiercest goal poachers and has an immense finishing range.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is known to be a tough nut to crack and it remains to be seen how he deals if an offer is made by the Spanish outfit. Do you think Kane belongs at Bernabeu?
