Steve McManaman has urged his former club Real Madrid not to sign a Tottenham star that they have been heavily linked with.
In an exclusive interview with Spanish sports outlet Marca the former Madrid star has stated that he doesn’t believe Real should go after Tottenham’s Harry Kane despite the heavy speculation linking him to the Bernabeu.

When asked about a possible move for Tottenham’s Kane, McManaman stated: “No [I wouldn’t sign Kane],” adding, “I would prefer to sign a young boy like Mbappe.”
The comments come on the day after Tottenham sank Champions League holders Real to a 3-1 defeat in an astonishing night at Wembley.
While Kane himself was not on the scoresheet, the speculation linking him with a move to Madrid has still been as persistent as ever.
The Daily Star recently reported that the Englishman was on the verge of completing a deal to Real with just a few terms left to be agreed.
If Kane was to arrive at the Bernabeu he would of-course be joining the prestigious company of Michael Owen and David Beckham who are also notable English talent to have joined the Spanish giants.
However, if a move was to materialize we would hope that the Tottenham forward looks to Beckham and Owen for inspiration rather than Englishman Jonathan Woodgate who famously got sent off on his debut for Madrid during a less than flattering time at the club.
It remains to be seen where Kane’s future will be but one thing we are pretty sure about is that Real are unlikely to be persuaded against a pursuit of the star by the likes of Steve McManaman. Sorry, Steve!
