Former Arsenal player Paul Merson believes that Real Madrid will make a move for Harry Kane.
The Tottenham Hotspur striker was once again on the goal trail by scoring the second goal in the 3-1 win against Chelsea at Wembley last night.
Merson who now works for Sky Sports as a pundit believes that Tottenham should be preparing themselves for a bumper offer from the Spanish giants next summer.
The current European champions are in somewhat of a transitional period following the resignation of Zinedine Zidane and the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo.
Madrid suffered an embarrassing 3-0 defeat at the hands of Eibar on Saturday and are expected to want to strengthen their squad in the summer.
Kane signed a new six-year contract at Tottenham in May worth £200,000 a week plus bonuses (Guardian) which would certainly put Daniel Levy in the box seat for any negotiations.
Merson believes that if Madrid came knocking with a bid in the region of £150million, Tottenham would find it difficult to refuse.
He told Sky Sports as quoted by The Daily Express: “A big worry for Tottenham, I keep on saying it,”
“The stadium’s costing a lot of money, Real Madrid are not doing well.
“They’re going to come for him, they’re going to come for him.
“It’s up to Tottenham to turn it down. No (they wouldn’t turn it down). What £150million? That’s a lot of money.
“I’m not saying this season, I’m saying next season. I think next season.”
