Real Madrid could make a move for a Tottenham untouchable after he proved the Spanish giants wrong, while a Chelsea star admits concern – all in the latest Paper Talk.
MADRID EYE CAN RAID
Tottenham forward Harry KaneHis form has seen him resurface as a primary target for Real Madrid, according to a report.
The 27-year-old has scored 14 goals and assisted another 12 in 17 matches in all competitions this season. However, he has shown his best form in the Premier League, contributing to 18 goals.
Such an impact has led Jose Mourinhomen at the top of the table and reportedly rekindled Spanish interest.
Don balon notes that Kane was previously a prime target for Madrid in previous transfer windows.
However, his recent injury problems caused boss Zinedine Zidane to rule out the possibility of a move “entirely.” In fact, he suffered a serious hamstring problem last season.
In the 2018/19 campaign, meanwhile, an ankle problem ruled him out for a significant period.
But the Spanish report claims that Kane has “been reborn” with Mourinho and has freed himself of his injury concerns.
As such, Zidane has pledged to reinstate the England captain as his ultimate goal.
Should Kane go? Spurs, its transfer would be one of the most expensive in history. The forward’s current contract in North London expires in 2024.
