Real Madrid have been told to cough up a staggering £310 million if they are to secure the services of Harry Kane from Tottenham Hotspur.
According to a report by The Sun, Real Madrid now know amount they will have to shell out if they intend to sign Harry Kane. Tottenham have slapped an eye watering £310 million price tag on their star striker in order to price the La Liga heavyweights out of a deal.
Kane has come a long way since his days of being an underconfident youngster while on loan spells at various clubs. Now, still some way away from his peak years, the player has progressed leaps and bounds to be widely regarded as one of the few genuine world-class strikers in the world.
The Englishman’s numbers for Tottenham are simply staggering, and he is being tipped to break the scoring records in the Premier League, having already won the Golden Boot twice. Kane has also flourished in England colours, winning the Golden Boot at the 2018 FIFA World Cup. But, his exploits have earned an admirer in Real Madrid.
Los Blancos have been in pursuit of the 25-year-old world-class forward for quite some time now, with the player, in fact, reportedly being their topmost priority, and for good reason. Karim Benzema has enjoyed a solid campaign so far. But, the Frenchman has still not managed to find the back of the net as consistently as Real Madrid have so urgently needed this season.
With Cristiano Ronaldo no longer a part of the first-team setup, Real Madrid are now in desperate need to sign a player who can replace his goals at the very least, if not his impact. Kane is thus, a viable target for the La Liga heavyweights, even though they have also been linked with a number of other lower profile strikers lately.
Tottenham though, are intent on keeping hold of their talisman, and to that effect, they have slapped an astounding £310 million price tag on the 25-year-old. If a deal is agreed at the aforementioned value, it would shatter the world record transfer fee that was set when Neymar joined PSG in 2017.
But, Spurs are hoping to thwart Real Madrid with their valuation of the player, especially considering they could also swoop away another one of their superstars soon – Christian Eriksen.
It now remains to be seen if Real Madrid are willing to shell out the eye watering £310 million sum to land their world-class target man. With Kane happy and content at Tottenham though, a move is unlikely to see the light of the day.
