David Ginola: This is what Tottenham must demand before selling Harry Kane
By Danny Wright
David Ginola believes that Tottenham must demand Gareth Bale and a further £50million from Real Madrid if the La Liga giants want to sign Harry Kane.
Kane, 24, has got everybody talking lately as he has found himself in the form of his life, scoring 11 goals in September including seven in his last three appearances for Spurs in both the Premier League and Champions League.
Spanish news outlet Don Balon has recently reported that Madrid are plotting to sign Kane for a stunning £177million next summer, a move which would make him the second most expensive player in the world after Neymar’s £198million switch to Paris Saint-Germain this year.
However Ginola believes that Spurs should reject that offer straight away and hold Madrid to ransom in order to try and bring Bale back to North London after he left to join the Galacticos in 2013.
TalkSport presenter Alan Brazil has even suggested that Spurs should demand £120million as well as the Wales international.

“That will be the best option, losing Harry Kane and getting Gareth Bale back at the club,” said Ginola on TalkSport, as shown in a video on Alan Brazil’s Sports Breakfast’s official Twitter account on Wednesday morning.
“Bale plus probably another player or maybe £50million.”
Ginola then asks Brazil if he would want more than £100million plus Bale for Kane, to which the Scotsman responds: “£120million.”

Kane will currently be focused on helping England secure qualification to the 2018 World Cup in Russia next summer in his next two outings when Gareth Southgate’s side takes on Slovenia and Lithuania.
Avoid defeat in those games will ensure the Three Lions of a spot at the World Cup, where Kane will no doubt look to showcase his talents on what is the biggest stage in world football.
