McManaman names the Euro rising star he perfers to Harry Kane
By Laura O’Leary
Steve McManaman has revealed that if he was in charge of Real Madrid he wouldn’t attempt to sign Harry Kane from Tottenham.
In an interview with Spanish newspaper Marca, the BT Sport pundit believes Kane is too difficult to sign and that he would prefer another highly-rated star.
He said: “No [I wouldn’t sign Kane], I would prefer to sign a young boy like Mbappe.
“It would be very difficult to sign Kane, the price of footballers today is crazy, you would need 200 million euros.”
The 45-year-old played for Real Madrid between 1999 and 2003 after moving from boyhood side Liverpool.

Kane has been in sensational form this season, scoring 13 goals in his 12 appearances across all competitions.
This includes scoring five goals in three Champions League games, averaging a goal every 50 minute.
Kane’s current team Tottenham face Real Madrid Wednesday evening at Wembley Stadium in the competition.
The England international could feature in the game, despite missing the last two Spurs game due to an injury to his left hamstring.
The in-form striker made a vital contribution when the two sides met earlier this month, and it was his run that led to Raphael Varane mistakenly turning the ball into his own net.
This error gave Spurs the lead midway through the first-half, but they eventually had to settle for a point after Ronaldo levelled the scores.
