Real’s £132m plus Bale offer for Kane

According to a report by The Express Real Madrid are willing to offer £132million and  Gareth Bale in a bid to sign Harry Kane.

The report claims that “transfer expert” Ian McGarry says Real Madrid are so desperate to get Kane to the Bernabeu that they will make the incredible offer to try and make it happen all despite the forward signing a new six year deal before the World Cup.

Gareth Bale of course departed White Hart Lane for a then world-record fee of £85million in 2013 and he has won four Champions League titles since.

However he spent much of last season battling against injury and Zinedine Zidane, who saw him as a squad player.

Real Madrid did sell Crisitano Ronaldo to Juventus and are on the hunt for a new signing to replace him and PSG’s Kylian Mbappe is an alternative target.

“With Mbappe it’s complicated but Real Madrid are fairly confident they can pursue him with some success but they are not entirely sure that is going to happen,” McGarry told the Transfer Window podcast.

“If you don’t get Mbappe, where do you go next? The most obvious one is to go to Harry Kane.They’ve been told he’s not for sale and know Daniel Levy is a very difficult person to negotiate with.

McGarry added: “It’s been suggested to me, Real Madrid would be willing to offer Gareth Bale plus €150m to Tottenham (for Kane).But in the knowledge that Gareth Bale isn’t that keen on going back to Tottenham.I think Levy has said privately that they don’t see Bale as a very good fit into what has now become a young, dynamic team.

And Bale at 28 with his recent missing game time through injuries might not be a good investment for Tottenham.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. What would silly season be without silly newspapers publishing silly stories that are repeated by even sillier bloggers. It’s all just so gloriously silly!! :-)

  2. What a load of bollocks. Bale has stated publicly he would like to come back . RM have said they don’t want Kane ‘apart from that the article is pretty good from the Daily Express.

  3. If this latest story has any foundation at all and it don`t matter what gutter press it is written in if its true and both players want a move and the doe ray me is in place from a Spurs point of view the time is right for the sake of Harry`s career and his ambitions this deal must go through , the quicker the better so MP can do his magic and talk Levy around to spend the fee plus the war chest that Levy has promised Spurs will be beyond the next level and take Europe by storm .

  4. You only have to glance the odd express article and check out below the line comments to see the calibre of journalism and the kind of people who frequent it. Deranged lunatics to a man – lapping up an endless stream of laughable fake nonsense. Like some kind of giant, gammon only psychiatric ward.
