Harry Kane would walk in to the Real Madrid team and should join them this summer, according to Graeme Souness.

Souness, speaking on talkSPORT, believes Kane will become the first £200m player and will consider leaving Spurs because ‘he’ll be looking at the wages paid at Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City’ and know he’s worth a lot more.

Its widely believed that Madrid will move for Kane, 24, this summer, and Souness believes Kane should go to the Bernabeu when the opportunity arises.

Writing in his Sunday Times column, Souness said: “I’m fully aware that I will be upsetting some fans with what I’m about to argue, but, being impartial, I believe that Harry Kane should leave for Real Madrid this summer, if he gets the chance.

He added: “The fee Real will have to pay for Kane will start with a two and be followed by eight zeros. I reckon that he could become the first £200m player.”

It has questioned whether he will be able to perform on the biggest stage and how he’d handle the pressure playing at Real Madrid brings a and how Kane could succumb to the trials and tribulations of wearing that most famous of white shirts.

However, Souness feels Kane is ready for that pressure… even if his Tottenham teammate Dele Alli, and his manager Mauricio Pochettino, are not.The Liverpool great continued: “Kane’s ready for Real Madrid, but Dele Alli isn’t.Ive seen a definite improvement in Kane since he came into Tottenham’s team, but not to the same extent in Alli.

He added: “Similarly, Real Madrid can’t be considering Mauricio Pochettino based on what he’s won. His publicity is great and he’s deemed to have done a good job at Tottenham, but if he’s being touted for the manager’s job at Real it tells me there’s a lack of candidates.
“Zinedine Zidane’s track record of two Champions League and a La Liga title in the past two seasons is the standard expected there.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Graeme Souness is talking out of his arse. There is not a scintilla of a chance that Harry Kane leaves Spurs this off season. None whatsoever. Levy would know that selling Kane, with a new stadium to fill and tens of thousands of season tickets to sell, would be professional suicide and he has already come out and stated categorically that none of Spurs star players will be sold. Harry’s partner is expecting their second child, Harry himself has stated that he is perfectly happy at Spurs and I expect that the likes of Kane, Erikssen and Alli, plus Alderweireld, will get substantial pay rises this off-season, to keep all parties happy. Bottom line, Harry Kane is not going anywhere.

  2. Of course Souness is a neutral! Has no ties to the Scousers whom we’ve surpassed in the last couple of seasons. His advice has nothing to do with getting in the head of the key talisman for a key competitor to his team for a Top 4 position!

    Levy would be daft on purely business considerations (forget the footballing ones!!) if he were to sell Kane this summer – even for £200 million. With stadium naming rights yet to be finalized, filling £61.5K seats every week being imperative in the first season, would you sell the one person who guarantees you success on these fronts?

    I think there will be an agreement that Kane will give aspires at least one more year and if we don’t realize Kane’s aspirations by winning the league or key cups and he wants to go after that that he will be allowed to do so. In the meantime, pay Harry £200K/week and keep your most important asset motivated to keep Spurs improving and achieving bigger things.
