Given the phenomenal form of Harry Kane, it was only a matter of time before Real Madrid got serious about their mooted interest in the Spurs striker…
An incredible 12 months saw Harry Kane recently finishing 2017 as the year’s top goal scorer in Europe – beating a certain Lionel Messi to the pole position.
Such has been the consistency of Kane’s brilliance, the Spurs striker has been linked with moves to Manchester United and Real Madrid for several summers. However, it is only in recent weeks that fans have got the feeling that Kane’s head may finally be getting turned.
Speaking about Philippe Coutinho’s transfer from Liverpool to Barcelona, Kane somewhat ominously stated that he didn’t believe a club should stop a player from leaving if they want to go.
“It’s a matter of opinion,” said Kane. “I think if a player wants to go then why would you stop him? He’s not going to be in the club, he’s not going to play every game, he’s not going to put his heart on the line.”
On Sunday afternoon, incredible reports broke claiming that Real Madrid were preparing an earth-shattering £200 million pound bid for the Spurs forward with The Times stating that the Bernabeu club are gearing up for a massive ‘summer overhaul’.

However, despite the gargantuan nature of the proposed Kane bid, Sky Sports have now reported that the club will not part company with their star player for any amount and will flatly reject a 200 million pound offer from Real Madrid.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Spurs Chairman Daniel Levy backed up this claim stating that he was ‘100%’ confident that the club will keep ‘every single player’ they want to during the summer window.
“I’m 100 per cent confident. Every single player that we want to keep, I can assure you will be playing for Tottenham Hotspur next season,” he told Sky Sports News.

Although Levy certainly seems confident regarding the 24-year-old’s future, it now looks like this is destined to be a transfer saga that will dominate the back pages in the summer months.
