Harry Kane transfer news: Kane is among the goals for Tottenham, as he reached the 20-goal mark across all competitions earlier this month.
Harry Kane has been one of the most prolific goalscorers in the Premier League over the last few years.
Last year, he also ended the World Cup as the highest goalscorer of the tournament, and was heavily linked with a mega-money move to Real Madrid.
The Spanish side has fairly struggled after the departure of Zinedine Zidane and Cristiano Ronaldo in the summer, and failed to replace the outgoing Portuguese forward in the summer.
The club went through their worst goalless run in club’s history, and their attackers suffered with injuries and inconsistent performance. And now, it has been reported that Real Madrid inquired about the English forward before Christmas.
Harry Kane transfer news:
The forward has long been linked with a move away from Tottenham, with Real Madrid the front-runners. However, Kane committed his future at the English not too long ago, in June 2018.
The forward signed a six-year contract at the club, which cooled down the speculations surrounding him with a move away from Tottenham.
Real Madrid have been warned they will have to pay €350 million (£313m/$400m) to land Tottenham star Harry Kane, according to reports in Spain.

However, it has now been reported by Spanish outlet AS that Kane’s move hasn’t stopped Real Madrid from continuing to pursue the forward.
The Spanish giants reportedly made an inquiry about Harry Kane in December. However, Tottenham told the club that they will need to splash out €350m to secure a transfer for the player.
Since Ronaldo’s departure, Real Madrid have lacked the firepower in their offence. The club has scored only 26 goals in 18 games in the league. In contrast, their arch-rivals Barcelona, who are currently at the top of the table, have scored 50.
Real Madrid reportedly asked Tottenham about buying Harry Kane before Christmas and were told he would cost £350m.

The regular injuries to Gareth Bale and an inconsistent form of Karim Benzema have raised further concerns, and the club is struggling at 5th position in the league.
