Souness claims Tottenham star should leave in summer for ten-figure fee – report
Ex-Liverpool and Scotland legend Graeme Souness believes that Harry Kane should quit Tottenham this summer if Real Madrid come knocking on the door for the 100-goal hitman.
Writing in his column for The Times on Sunday, (page 10 of the sports section), Souness made the bold claim and added an even bolder one by stating that should an offer emerge from Spain, it would have to be in the region of £200,000 – a fee that would make the 24-year-old the world’s most expensive player – above even Neymar.
And Souness is certain that the La Liga giants will have no problem in splashing the cash on Kane, who has proved time after time just how consistently he can find the back of the net, and it is not easy to find a player capable of such coolness in front of goal.
The Walthamstow born Londoner scored his 100th Premier League goal for Tottenham on Sunday in his side’s 2-2 with Liverpool putting him in up with some of the greats of the game, including Thierry Henry, Alan Shearer, and Wayne Rooney.
But with a move for the club on the horizon, the Scot urged Kane to look at to the example set by his North London rivals, who moved to the Emirates to join the great clubs of world football.
It was a step that rebounded and Arsenal have become a more inferior club in terms of being competitive on the elite stage.
Souness wrote in The Times: “I believe that Harry Kane should leave for Real Madrid in the summer if he gets the chance.
“I reckon that he could become the first £200million player.
“They will pay that premium because putting the ball in the back of the net regularly is the hardest thing to do in football.
“He’ll be looking at the wages paid at Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City and, although he’ll never say it, know he’s better than players who are getting twice as much and winning medals.
“Ultimately, if he can’t tick those boxes at Tottenham, he will leave.”
