Greats of the game are tipping the striker for a move to Spain


When it comes to Harry Kane and Real Madrid, it’s always seemed like a story of impossible love. However, the striker is once being linked with Los Blancos.

Kane’s having a great season. He has scored 12 in 15 league games for Spurs, and at the World Cup has one goal and three assists for England.

In 297 career Premier League games, he has scored 195 goals. In the Champions League, he has 21 in 30.

At 29, Kane has almost 300 goals  to his name. In just under 80 caps,  he has scored more than 50 for  England. He’s a true finisher.

Kane’s a great header of the ball, he’s two footed, he can hold it up… As  Cesc Fàbregas has written in the Telegraph: He’s perfect for Madrid.

Asked late last month whether  Kane could end up at Madrid,  Spain great David Villa told on beIN  Sports: “I believe so, yeah.”

Former England captain John Terry also thinks Kane would be a good fit at the Bernabéu. “I think he's got ambition to go and win trophies," Terry told beIN.

“He’s one of the best No. 9s in the world," Terry added. "He wants to win trophies, he wants to play for the  best and biggest teams.”

Kane would be following in the footsteps of other top English players who have played for Madrid, like McManaman, Beckham and Owen.

Although Kane's been heavily tipped to join Man City in recent years, Erling Haaland’s arrival at the Etihad Stadium looks to have closed that door. 

But he could be Karim Benzema’s replacement at Madrid. Benzema's out of contract in 2024, as is Kane. He’d be the ideal buy, albeit he’d be 31 by then.

Another option for Madrid is to pay up and sign Kane sooner. There are no release clauses in the Premier League, and the striker is valued at €90m.

Others linked with Madrid include Bellingham, Enzo Fernández and Davies. The World Cup’s a great shop window, and Madrid are after signings.
