Let’s not even deny it. Harry Kane’s trip to Spain on Tuesday, is an informal audition at Real Madrid.
It’s an open secret that the La Liga and European champions solely depend on Cristiano Ronaldo for goals. And the Portugal captain is already 32. Time for a replacement.
A younger player, who guarantees as much goals.
Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane, was gushing in his praise of Kane on Monday.
Kane leads the scoring charts after two Champions League group matches with five goals.
“He is a fundamental player for Tottenham, he is very good in every aspect, but the best thing about him is that he’s always got the goal on his mind,” Zidane told a news conference on Monday.
“He’s a very complete player even though he does not look it, but he always turns up when he needs to.”
Zidane however cooled any talk he is considering signing the 24-year-old.
“I don’t know what’s going to happen in the future,” he said.
Here’s the thing. Madrid needs Kane more than Kane needs Madrid. Benzema is a spent force and Ronaldo only netted his first league goal last weekend.
So the earlier Florentino Perez sends in that mammoth bid, the better.
