Tottenham star is an ‘obvious target’ for Real Madrid says former player

Former Spurs player Jamie Redknapp believes Harry Kane is an ‘obvious target’ for Real Madrid. However, the Englishman doesn’t think Kane needs to leave if he gets his just rewards.

Jamie Redknapp has had a distinguished career in English football. He played for Liverpool, Bournemouth and Southampton, along with Spurs before becoming a pundit for Sky Sports. In a recent interview with Omnisport, the former Reds legend spoke about Harry Kane’s situation at Spurs and how it could potentially change.


Redknapp believes Kane should be paid well

In his interview with Omnisport, the pundit said, “He is a long way past that [interest from Real Madrid], of course he is a target.But I think if Tottenham give him the money he wants and pay him like they should do, why would you want to go anywhere?”.

Redknapp makes a good point, Spurs have been known to have a very strict wage policy. Which is also what led to Kyle Walker’s departure to Manchester City in the summer for a record fee. Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen have been linked with moves away as well. It may not be long before Levy has to rethink his policy of running the club. Meanwhile, Mauricio Pochettino continues to do a great job with the resources at hand.


Kane has been central to Spurs’ successes under Pochettino in recent years.

Redknapp further said,”He is playing with some good young players but the only problem is now the way the game has gone you need to be earning the big money.He should be on what Lukaku is on and [Manchester City forward] Aguero is on and all the best players in the world because he is up there with them.”

We will have a good race for the golden boot says Redknapp

After a slow start in August, Kane’s form has really picked up in recent weeks. The Englishman has made a strong start to the season with 15 goals in all competitions for club and country. Such excellent form has led to continuous rumours of a move to Madrid and some very strange rumours as well.

At the moment, Kane’s future at Spurs is secure. He has a contract which lasts up to 2022, so Spurs fans can rest assured of his commitment to the club. However, Zinedine Zidane has made his interest in Kane very public. The Frenchman recently called him as a ‘complete forward’ and is cautious of the striker ahead of their encounter in the UEFA Champions League.

Speaking further on Kane’s current form and the race for the golden boot, Redknapp said,“I do [expect Kane’s form to continue] because he works so hard and is a master of his craft.You know he plays every single game and gives 100 percent and keeps fit and I think between him and [Romelu] Lukaku we will have a good race for the golden boot.”

Author’s take

Redknapp is right to say that Kane is an obvious target for Real Madrid. The Spanish giants are looking for some fresh blood to add to their ranks after winning La Liga last season. A player of Kane’s consistency and professionalism fits the bill for Madrid President Florentino Perez who would be willing to make any deal for the forward. His sheer output of goals in the Premier League has put him in the bracket of top strikers like Luis Suarez, Robert Lewandowski and Edinson Cavani. It will be interesting to see where Kane’s future lies for the long term.
