Tottenham know all too well what it’s like to lose their best players to Real Madrid. It happened with Luka Modric and Gareth Bale, and it could be about to happen with Harry Kane.
The 24-year-old is supposedly the last bastion of loyalty in football and it’s almost unthinkable that he would want to leave Spurs.
On top of that, it’s very unlikely that Daniel Levy would even entertain the thought of selling his prize asset, who has now scored a ridiculous 11 goals in nine games this season – despite failing to find the back of the net for the whole of August – following his brace in the weekend’s 4-0 win over Huddersfield.
The reports that Real are eyeing a £177 bid for the double-Golden Boot winner are coming out of Spain, or the admittedly unreliable Don Balon to be precise.
Los Blancos missed out on Kylian Mbappe this summer, with the French international opting to join PSG instead. As a consequence, they must still find a solution to their long-term attacking options, with one eye forever on a post-Ronaldo Madrid.
Of course, Karim Benzema has only just signed a new contract, so Zinedine Zidane has filled that striking option for the immediate future.
Real can no longer rely on their ‘special partnership’ with Tottenham, an agreement Levy terminated when he realised Spurs weren’t actually getting anything out of it at all.
It remains to be seen whether the allure of the Bernabeu is enough to tempt Kane.
