This news will have our resident Tottenham Hotspur supporters in tears in the Transfer Tavern. While this week has been full of joy for so many of them, it seems their collective mood has taken a downturn of late.
Spanish news outlet Onda Cero (via talkSPORT) reports that Real Madrid made an informal offer for the services of Tottenham striker, Harry Kane when the two sides met in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
According to the Spanish outlet, Real Madrid offered to swap Gareth Bale and Borja Mayoral for Harry Kane, much to the interest of our north London locals. Bale certainly is a Tottenham legend, though many of our punters view him as the past.
Spurs enjoy a good relationship with Real Madrid with regards to previous transfers such as the deals for Gareth Bale and Luka Modric respectively.
It will be intriguing to see how Spurs respond to this part-exchange offer.
While Gareth Bale is a truly world-class player, Spurs must certify that they keep their best players. During his time at Tottenham Hotspur, Harry Kane has established himself as one of the best strikers in world football. Thus, they must do everything in their power to keep him.
