Zinedine Zidane gives cryptic response when asked about Tottenham transfer claims
By Russell Edge
Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane did not rule out a future move for Tottenham striker Harry Kane when asked about a potential transfer.
The England striker has been linked with a move to the Spanish giants after his incredible goal scoring form, which has seen him net over 20 league goals in each of the last three seasons.
He has continued to demonstrate his natural talent in front of goal this season, scoring 11 goals in 10 appearances across all competitions, including five in the Champions League.
Tottenham’s next game sees them go head-to-head with Zidane’s side on Tuesday, and the former French international has been singing the praises of the 24-year-old.
Speaking in a press conference ahead of the Champions League clash, the footballing icon was quoted by Sky Sports as saying: “He is very good in every aspect, but the best thing about him is that he’s always got the goal on his mind.

“He’s a very complete player even though he does not look it, but he always turns up when he needs to.”
When asked about the possibility of making a transfer move for the Tottenham star, Zidane was cryptic, although he failed to rule anything out.
He told the press, including Sky Sports: “I don’t know what’s going to happen in the future.”
Kane will be hoping that his side can perform better than Spurs’ last visit to the Bernabeu, when they were beaten in the Champions League quarter finals 4-0 by Los Blancos in 2011.
They come into the match off the back of a 1-0 win over Bournemouth on Saturday, with Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen scoring the goal which secured the club’s first home win in the league this season.
