It could be deja vu all over against for Tottenham Hotspur, who could very well give Harry Kane the Gareth Bale treatment and unload their superstar to a wealthy European club. The latest reports have two of Europe’s biggest clubs sending scouts to watch Kane play through the final stretch of the season, and either one of them could make chairman Daniel Levy and offer he can’t refuse.
According to the Evening Standard, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich have both had scouts keeping an eye on Kane and have even requested that their officials be kept in the loop for any change in the 22-year-old striker’s plans. As the projected starter for England in Euro 2016 as well as one of the best strikers in the Premier League, Kane’s transfer tag is unknown but would likely be record-setting.
The English forward has committed himself to the Spurs, signing a five-and-a-half-year contract extension last year but that currently pays him £50,000-a-week. However, the contract is still pennies on the dollar compared to the Premier League’s highest-paid players.
Kane has 22 goals in the Premier League this season, tied with Leicester City forward Jamie Vardy for the most goals in the league. Last year he finished the season with 21 goals, second in the league behind Man City forward Sergio Aguero.
In 2013, Tottenham Hotspur sold leading scorer Gareth Bale to Real Madrid for a world-record £85.3 million.
