Tottenham striker Harry Kane is reportedly concerned that Real Madrid might have prioritised other targets ahead of him in the summer, according to reports.
Kane’s future has already been subject to much speculation over recent weeks with the England captain reported being on the radars of Real Madrid (Diario Madridista) and Manchester United (Evening Standard), this summer.
Transfer expert Ian McGarry has now fuelled further speculation over the striker’s future by insisting that he is eyeing a move to Los Blancos and is concerned that the Spanish giants might opt for other targets.
McGarry claims that Kane’s words were motivated by worries that Madrid may snub him in favour of a move for Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang or Borussia Dortmund hitman Erling Braut Haaland this summer.
Speaking to the Transfer Window podcast (as relayed by The Express), McGarry said: “My reading of the situation and indeed information from those close to the player (Kane) is that he is slightly concerned that he is falling behind with regard to a possible move to his preferred destination, and that of course is La Liga.
“His preferred club is Real Madrid, there has been a lot, a lot of conversation and a lot of chat in the Spanish press about Madrid targeting Erling Haaland whose start at Borussia Dortmund has been nothing short of outstanding, and even Arsenal’s captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who is 30, not getting any younger.
“But of course the current No 9 at Madrid, Karim Benzema, in the twilight of his career. Many people expect him to move, if certainly not drop down the pecking order for next season.”
Spurs Web Opinion
I wouldn’t be surprised if Kane did have his eye on Real Madrid all along but the reality is that they are going to find it difficult to afford him, particularly given the financial downturn clubs are facing under the current circumstances.
I would expect Madrid to go for Haaland since he is the cheaper and younger option, which might be bad news for Kane but great news for Spurs.
