Reports suggest Real Madrid have made first contact with Tottenham Hotspur about a potential deal for Harry Kane (Marca).

The speculation over Kane’s future is mounting day by day and with just one year left on his current contract, it seems the player and Tottenham both face a big decision over their next move.

After another season without a trophy, and a dismal eighth-placed finish in the Premier League leaving Spurs with no European football next year, many suspect Kane could move on in search of silverware.

Manchester United are thought to have the England captain at the top of their wishlist this summer (Daily Star).

However, the Red Devils are aware that signing the Spurs striker will be a big challenge, with his current club unlikely to be willing to let him go (Telegraph).

Spanish giants Real Madrid have also been linked with Kane previously (AS), and now that interest appears to have sharpened in light of Karim Benzema’s decision to leave the club this summer.

The Independent claim Madrid will indeed pursue a move for Harry Kane to replace the Frenchman, but have been quoted an eye-watering sum of money if they want to prise him away from Tottenham Hotspur.

It is believed Daniel Levy would have a “hardline stance” and will try to keep Kane at Spurs this summer despite his contract situation. If he were to let Kane go, it is expected Levy would “want as much as £200 million.”

Marca have now reported that Madrid have already made first contacts with both Tottenham and Kane’s camp about a potential summer deal, but the Spanish club know just how hard Daniel Levy is to deal with.

Spurs Web Opinion

There is no number you can put on Harry Kane to make a transfer worthwhile for Tottenham, and I do not blame Levy for demanding crazy money to let him go.

£200 million would give us a chance of replacing Kane, and should be the figure we look for this summer.
