Spanish Report Claims Spurs And Real Madrid Are In Advanced Talks Over Harry Kane Transfer

Reports have emerged this evening that Tottenham and Real Madrid are in advanced talks over a potential transfer for Harry Kane.

Spanish newspaper Diario AS (per the BBC) – are reporting that negotiations between the two clubs are at an advanced stage, so much so that Kane has already chosen the No.10 shirt at the Bernabeu.

Real Madrid’s interest in Kane has been a poorly kept secret – with manager Zinedine Zidane describing the 24-year old as the ‘complete player’ in recent weeks. The Englishman finished 2017 as Europe’s top scorer with a tally of 56 goals for club and country.

Though Kane appears to be committed to Tottenham for the time being – the report states that Spurs would be willing to let the player go for a fee in excess of £150m, with Real president Florentino Perez keen to make him his next ‘Galactico’.

The signing of Kane would mean one of Real’s famous front three – Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema – would have to make way. It is believed that Bale could potentially be used as a makeweight to seal a return to his former club, with Kane going the other way in a player plus cash deal.

And the man whose number ten shirt Kane is supposedly after – another former Tottenham man, Luka Modric – is also believed to want to leave the club following this summer’s World Cup with Croatia. The 32-year old has won multiple honours with Madrid and wants to finish his career elsewhere – with multiple offers awaiting in both the Premier League and Serie A.

While nothing is a certainty yet – these rumours will do nothing to ease the fears of Spurs fans in losing another star player to the Spanish giants. Unfortunately, if Kane’s form continues – it seems all but a matter of when until he is picturing posing with a Madrid shirt.
