When Harry Kane burst onto the scene in the 2014/2015 season, there was some fans who were adamant he would be a one season wonder.

How wrong they were.

Kane has gone from strength to strength since scoring 31 goals in the 2014/2015 season, following up that campaign with 28 goals in the 2015/2016 season, before notching 35 goals in just 38 games last season.

He has already hit the back of the net 13 times in just 12 appearances this campaign; with this incredible strike-rate attracting making him one of the, if not the most lethal striker in world football.

Due to his remarkable prowess in front of goal, he has attracted the attention of the world's elite clubs, including Real Madrid.

Last week, Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane felt compelled to defend Karim Benzema, after Gary Lineker described him as 'overrated'.

The Frenchman said: "Karim will not score 60 goals, but he will score 20 goals and assists for 30 or 40 more. It bothers me when people talk badly about my players. For me, Benzema is the best."

This defence of his striker hinted that despite reports, Real Madrid would not make a move for Kane as he did not believe he would be an upgrade on Benzema.


Nevertheless, rumours of Kane to Tottenham have not gone away, but Florentino Perez has now spoken on speculation that they will make a move for the England international some time in the near future.

Surprisingly, despite Real Madrid's willingness to buy the world's best players for whatever price, Perez has rubbished reports that the club are interested in Kane.

Perez told Cadena COPE, per the Mirror, "Signing Harry Kane has not passed through my head. He is a great player and in addition he is young.

"He has many years to progress, but we are delighted with [Karim] Benzema and with all of the team.

"I didn’t ask Tottenham’s president for the price because he would have told me that he is worth €250m."

Unless something happens to Benzema or they have a sudden change of heart, it seems unlikely that Real Madrid will make a move for Kane any time soon.
