Paper Talk: Boca deny Arsenal link; Kane picks Real Madrid number

Date published: Wednesday 10th January 2018 7:59

Harry Kane has made a series of demands to Real Madrid, while Monaco have set Thomas Lemar’s price according to Wednesday’s papers.



Harry Kane is ready to quit Tottenham in order to seal a sensational move to Real Madrid, according to the Daily Express.

They reference a report from Diario Gol, who claim that talks between the two clubs over a possible move are at an ‘advanced stage’.

Kane has reportedly even told Real the exact number he wants to wear when he joins the Bernabeu club.

Diario Gol insist that the England international has his eye on the No.10 shirt currently worn by his ex-Spurs team-mate Luka Modric.

Despite the number currently being taken, there is not expected to be a battle for it, as Modric is reportedly considering an exit this summer.

The North London club are believed to have set a price tag of £132m (€150m) if they are to sell their star player to Madrid once again.

However, Real president Florentino Perez is supposedly hoping to lower that fee by sending Gareth Bale the other way.

Aside from demanding the No 10 shirt, Kane has allegedly made a wage request of around £10.6m a year (€12m) to leave Spurs.
