Harry Kane, 30, Tottenham, has been linked with a move to Real Madrid. Tottenham Hotspur are no longer interested in holding onto him.
European soccer transfer expert Alfredo Pedulla tweeted on Monday (Aug. 8), “Kane is very close to a move to Real Madrid. Tottenham and Real Madrid have held talks over his transfer and have reached an agreement in principle,” he said, adding, “Real Madrid want to sign him to replace Karim Benzema, who left for Alitalia.”
Kane’s future has been the subject of much speculation this summer. He’s out of contract with Tottenham next summer, but he hasn’t signed a new deal. Given his age – he’ll soon turn 30 – this is effectively his last chance to move on.
Kane is also considering leaving Spurs, his longtime home for trophies. Whether it’s in a year’s time or now, it’s only a matter of time before Kane and Tottenham say goodbye. The fact that Tottenham will not be competing in Europe next season also adds to his desire to leave.
In the meantime, Kane has been inundated with offers. Aside from Manchester United, who have long wanted him, Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain, and others were also interested.
United emerged as the frontrunners. With 213 Premier League goals to his name, Kane wants to surpass Alan Shearer’s record of 260. With his desire to remain in England, United seemed to be the only option.
The tide turned when Real Madrid jumped in. Real Madrid, the reigning UEFA Champions League (UCL) champions (14) and La Liga champions (35), had their sights set on Kane. According to ‘The Athletic’, Carlo Ancelotti was reportedly strongly wanted by the club.
Real Madrid plan to fill the void left by Benzema’s departure to Saudi Arabia with Kane. Kane is a world-class striker who scored 30 goals and provided three assists in all 38 league games in the 2022-2023 season, so he is a signing that Real Madrid would welcome with open arms. As for Kane, there aren’t many teams better suited to lift the trophy than Real Madrid, as long as they don’t give up the most goals in the Premier League.
It’s not a bad option for Tottenham either. If Kane decides to leave the Premier League for La Liga, he won’t have any enemies. Rather than trying to hold on to him and letting him go for free a year later, it might be wiser to let him go this summer and pocket the transfer fee.
Kane’s price tag is expected to be in the region of 100 million euros ($139.6 billion). “Tottenham have asked for €100 million to €110 million, while Real Madrid have offered €80 million to €90 million with additional bonus clauses,” Pedulla explained.메이저사이트
“The two sides have reached an agreement in principle and only a few details remain to be finalized. Kane is very close to joining Real Madrid.” This means that Kane, Tottenham, and Real Madrid have all agreed to a deal and are in the process of finalizing it.
If Kane does end up in a Real Madrid shirt, it will mark the end of the “Son-Ke duo” that dominated the Premier League. Kane and Son have been together for eight seasons, leading the Tottenham attack since the 2015-2016 season. Their chemistry was such that they set the Premier League record for most goals scored together (47), but now they’re set to part ways.
