So despite his insistence that he wants to be a one club man, The Sun think otherwise an according to them Real Madrid are convinced they will land Harry Kane in a stunning transfer this summer.
The delight that is Neil Ashton writes that our Harry, who starred in our 1-1 draw at the Bernabeu on Tuesday, is their No 1 target.
The article continues saying Spurs face a season-long battle to keep hold of our asset — a fight we of course lost when Gareth Bale headed to Spain for a then world-record of £86million back in 2013.
Ashton says that only a fee close to the £198m Paris Saint-Germain paid Barcelona for Neymar in the summer could tempt the Spurs hierarchy to sell.
Ashton then contradicts himself almost immediately by saying Spurs have no intention of letting the 24-year-old leave and the England striker insists he is happy at the club.
However according to the article the appeal of playing for Real is impossible to turn down, especially for any players with ambitions of winning the big trophies and that Harry admitted during the recent international break he could “never say never” about a move abroad at some point in his career.
Ashton,while pointing to the clubs lack of silverware, says we have not even thought about putting a valuation on him as the club have not considered cashing in on one of our own.
And not satisfied with selling Kane to Madrid Ashton writes that Real see Mauricio Pochettino as a possible successor to Zinedine Zidane (stop giggling now)
According to Ashton, Poch impressed the Bernabeu hierarchy with his conduct in Spain last week but he does say Florentino Perez has made it clear he has absolutely no plans to get rid of current coach ‘Zizou’
However Ashton says Perez has told ‘pals’ (yes he did say ‘pals) that if the Frenchman did leave, then Pochettino would be in the frame to take over.
So there you have it, a good giggle for you over breakfast. Both Kane and Pochettino have said they want to be at Spurs for a very long time but it won’t stop fiction like this emerging.
Perhaps Ashton needs something to discuss on Sunday Supplement. It’s hard to know whether players and managers read rubbish like this and how much of an effect it has. I believe both will be around for a long time but the words ‘never say never’ are often used so who really knows. Let us have your thoughts on the latest Kane and Madrid link.
