Real Madrid readying sensational €250m move for English PL goal king

Real Madrid supremo Florentino Perez could be set to ignore French phenom Kylian Mbappe in favour of making an audacious bid for goal-scoring metronome Harry Kane.

That comes from Spanish publication Don Balon, who go on to list several reasons why the England centre-forward could be the next man to adorn the famous number nine at the Bernabeu.

The long-held belief was that Los Blancos would make a play for Kylian Mbappe, with the 20-year-old already operating around the goal-per-game mark despite being so young.

Kane, 26, has made no noises about wishing to leave boyhood club Tottenham, but voices in the media have become more frequent suggesting that the England captain should seek a move elsewhere if he is to realise his true potential and win trophies on a consistent basis.

The report states that Real head honcho Florentino Perez ‘will go fully for Harry Kane’, describing the marksman as ‘the most decisive striker in the world.’

At 26 years old, Kane is in the prime of his career and has already racked up an incredible goals tally having notched 174 times in 266 games for Spurs.

No trophies have been forthcoming, however, and it is this desire for silverware Real Madrid will seemingly be counting on as the article states: ‘in London he will not find the titles he is looking [for].’



The article concedes that prising Kane away from White Hart lane will be a mightily difficult task – not to mention expensive – compounded by the fact that the forward’s contract with Spurs keeps him in North London until the summer of 2024.

Nevertheless, Madrid have reportedly reserved ‘250 million euros for the operation’, in what would be both one of the biggest and most shocking transfers of recent times.

Meanwhile, Tottenham’s potential swoop for a Barcelona star is expected to hinge on the Catalan club’s ability to shift an ex-Liverpool ace on a permanent deal.
