Kane and Bale £150m swap possible

Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

Another day another story linking our star man with a move away with several news outlet this morning saying Real Madrid are ready to offer Gareth Bale back to Tottenham – in a bid to sign Harry Kane.

The Star says that would amount to a £150million cash-plus-player package for our inform goal-machine.

We reluctantly sold Bale, 28, to Real four years ago for £85m and the article adds that we have an agreement with the Madrid club that we will be informed of any offer from another Premier League club – and have the option to match it.

It goes on to say that Manchester United have regularly been linked with Bale – and have always wanted Kane, 24 but the Daily Star Sunday understands the fear at Old Trafford is that Kane will move to Madrid – with Bale possibly going the other way.

It adds however there will be no deal of that nature in this transfer window and that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy and boss Mauricio Pochettino are adamant that Kane is staying.

It also adds that Bale’s Real wages of £300k-a-week PLUS would also be a major problem however Bernabeu interest in Kane is growing with every goal he scores and Real WILL investigate ways of signing him with the Galacticos considering selling Bale as a result of the number of matches he misses through injury.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Anything is possible in football and business, but this is not going to happen.
    Spurs would welcome Bale back in a heartbeat, but not at the expense of Kane
    leaving. Kane is too precious a commodity for Tottenham, and worth far more
    than the figures of even £200m bandied about.
    He is the 'face' of Spurs in a way Gareth Bale never was, or could be, plus
    Kane's star is rising. Bale's main weapon was his pace, and at 28, with all
    his injuries, he's not going to be the same player he was at Spurs over 4 years
    back. Still, I would love to see him return if it was possible.
    As for Kane, he can be a real money earner both for himself and Spurs, on and
    off the pitch, for years to come. He isn't like Beckham, but he could be the
    face not just of Spurs, but also England, and achieve world wide fame like
    Beckham has, Handled correctly, Spurs would be mad to cash in on their
    greatest asset …even to the tune of £300m!!!

  2. What everyone has missed is the fact that The Welshman was more than eager to join the Madrid club as did the Croatian Modric. Both players had no allegiance to Spurs and couldn’t get out the door quick enough which made it impossible for Levy to hang on to them so he made the best of a losing situation. Kane on the other hand is Spurs through and through. Having said that, the club has to demonstrate genuine ambition and an appreciation of what he means to the future of our club and it’s followers. It would sure as hell show the football world and the haters of our club in the press, if Levy tells all interested parties to stick their enquiries where the sun don’t shine. To retain the services of Kane and all our better players, would attract quality additions to the club. I would welcome Bale back to the club but not as a makeweight for Kane as the greasy nonces from Marca are suggesting on behalf of their benefactor Real Madrid.

    • CORRECT. And spot on. Glad you remembered modric handed in a transfer request. And as you said bale couldn't wait to get out.. So they didn't show any loyalty like kane, as much as I liked bale at spurs he and modric can get stuffed ? %..
      Kane has shown loyalty to the club. Now I believe he will stay if the club moves forward in the way he hopes it does.
      To many haters out there just don't want to see spurs rise up. So they come up with negative talk, if they want to win silverware they must leave spurs.
      take a look carefully it's usually ex United or arsenal Chelsea players.

  3. It’s ‘possible’ in the same sense that shooting down a flying pig to get a pork chop is ‘possible’.

    Why swap one of the best players in the world now for someone to sit sadly on the injury bench, plus a bung?

  4. Even if this was Kane plus 150M…it wouldn’t be enough.

    As mentioned by others, Bale seems to spend a lot of time injured recently. Why would Spurs trade Kane for some money plus Bale is in the minds of football writers trying to get “hits” on the various webpages.

    I suspect that Spurs would lose a lot of fans (I have been a supporter since around 1955) if they did this. They are not a “selling” cliub anymore.

  5. Agree with all said bale is past his best date,we need to step up and pay our players what they are worth and invest in top players
