Jonathan Woodgate has urged Harry Kane to make the move to Real Madrid should the opportunity present itself in the future.
Woodgate joined the Spanish giants in somewhat of a surprise move from Newcastle United in 2011 for £13.4million (Independent).
After three seasons and just 14 appearances in all competitions with Madrid, Woodgate headed back to the Premier League and joined Middlesbrough (transfermarkt).
Despite the central defender’s tough tenure in La Liga, he believes that Kane should look to follow in his footsteps if he has the desire to reach the same levels as Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
Woodgate, who scored the winning goal against Chelsea in the last time which Spurs won a trophy in 2008 believes that Jose Mourinho’s side have no chance of winning the Premier League title in the next few seasons and should consider a move to the Santiago Bernabéu if he wishes to win the Champions League.
“If Real Madrid come in for you – especially Harry Kane – he has got to go,” Woodgate told Stadium Astro.
“If he wants to win trophies and get onto that next pedestal of Messi, Ronaldo and that type of player, he has to go.
“I don’t see him winning the league at Spurs, not this season and not in the next few seasons, they have got too much building to do to get up there with Liverpool and Man City. For me, if he wants to win the European Cup then he has got a chance of winning it at Real Madrid.”
