Reports from Europe claim that Spanish giants, Real Madrid, are preparing a £177m bid for two-time England’s highest goal scorer, Harry Kane. However, Tottenham seem not to be amused by amount of money, as they point out that Kane is already under contract until 2022.
Kane is now with the England squad, and is more concerned with leading his country out tonight against Slovenia in search of the win that will guarantee Gareth Southgate’s side a place in next summer’s World Cup finals.
However, the Real Madrid target has said, “I would never say no. I would never say yes. I think in football, you never know and you never rule out anything. It is not something that I definitely want to do but it could happen. You just never know. Like you said, at the moment, I am very happy where I am here – that is all that matters. We will see what happens, but for now that is all I am focusing on.”
Kane will tonight wear the armband against Slovenia tonight for the third time, having previously led the side in the two internationals in June against Scotland and France. He is looking to join David Platt and Victorian international Dr Tinsley Lindley as the only men to have scored on each of their first three occasions as captain. The FA say more than 60,000 fans are expected at Wembley after a potential tube strike was called off on Tuesday.
