Real Madrid: Zinedine Zidane hasn’t given up on signing Harry Kane

Real Madrid may have plans elsewhere but this doesn’t mean they’ve given up on Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few years, you’ll be aware of Harry Kane. The Tottenham Hotspur striker has emerged into one of the best in the world and Real Madrid has noticed this since they want to bring the Englishman to the Bernabeu.

The last time Real Madrid signed a British attacker from Spurs was when they signed Gareth Bale, so the two clubs do have a positive transfer history. However, should Madrid sign Kane, then his longevity would be much greater than that shown by Bale.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Real Madrid is still eager to sign Harry Kane from Tottenham. It’s thought that they are looking into other options, those being Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland, however, this does not lessen their interest in Kane in any way.

With Jose Mourinho at the helm for Tottenham, things could look very different for Harry Kane. While Mourinho has shown a lot of interest in Kane, even before he was the Spurs boss, he’s a sensible player so he will know whether it’s best to work under the Portuguese manager or not.

Working under Zinedine Zidane has proven fruitful for the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema, and having only started his managerial career in the last decade, the French boss has experience with some of Europe’s top players.

Kane is a very versatile striker and it’s what makes him a candidate to be the best striker in the world. The Englishman excels with the ball at his feet in front of goal, but he also has very good link-up play. That said, he is an excellent team player and if he signs at the Bernabeu, no attacker would be left behind.

It’s going to take Tottenham a lot to budge but Real Madrid certainly has the funds to do so. It all comes down to whether or not Real Madrid is able to exploit the uncertain nature of this summer’s transfer window.

Where do you think Harry Kane will be playing next season?
