Reigning European champions Real Madrid have reportedly set aside a big transfer fee in their quest to sign Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane during this summer’s transfer window.
The England international has previously talked about his desire to stay with his North London amidst interest from major European clubs like Real Madrid and Manchester United.
The Red Devils are long-term admirers of the Three Lions of England captain.
Harry Kane, 25, led England to fourth place at last summer’s FIFA World Cup tournament in Russia.
He finished the tournament as the top scorer with six goals.
Reports emanating from the Spanish media claimed that Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is determined to secure his transfer.
It was revealed that €180m has been set aside to meet the financial demands for it.
The €180m includes a €120m transfer fee plus €60m in wages over a five-year period.
Harry Kane is recovering from a serious ankle injury at the moment and he’s expected back on the pitch in March.
Apart from Harry Kane, Tottenham Hotspur also have to fend off interest in club manager Mauricio Pochettino.
Both Real Madrid and Manchester United want the Argentine tactician but Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is expected to rebuff any attempt to poach their manager.
