According to Spanish newspaper Don Balon, Real Madrid could agree on a deal with Tottenham Hotspur for Harry Kane before the end of the transfer window, with the 25-year-old having ‘agreed’ an ‘escape route’ from White Hart Lane should a big European club like Real make a bid. Martina Miranda’s report adds that Los Blancos could offer £202m to bring Kane to the Santiago Bernabéu before the summer transfer window closes, as they’re in need of a stellar center-forward after losing Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus.
Kane has had a fantastic last 12 months for club and country, solidifying his position as one of the best strikers in Europe. He’s been on fire for Tottenham, scoring 30 goals in 37 Premier League games last season and winning the Golden Boot for England at the 2018 World Cup in Russia – six goals. After Real lost Ronaldo, they’ve been looking for his replacement to no avail and may have another shot at signing Kane due to a deal he agreed with Tottenham.
Despite the English international signing a long-term deal with Spurs in June, the terms of his contract reportedly allow him to move away from London if a European giant meets his £202m asking price. Real are hoping to capitalize on the situation as they’ve so far struggled to bring Robert Lewandowski and Neymar in from Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain respectively.
FeedFootball Verdict on this rumour:
We think Don Balon is a very unreliable source and there is hardly any possibility of Harry Kane leaving this month.
