Neville tells Tottenham Hotspur to forget about Kane transfer rumours

When a top player is in scintillating form, it can be understandable for clubs to feel slightly nervous that their star attraction is going to be poached.

Harry Kane is that figure for Tottenham Hotspur, and it is Real Madrid who have been touted in the media as a potential suitor.

The England international has been seemingly unstoppable this season as he has netted 29 goals in 29 appearances in all competitions.

After scoring the equaliser in a 1-1 draw with Southampton on Sunday, Kane is now just one strike away from recording 100 Premier League goals.

With almost-perfect form comes plenty of speculation, and the rumour mill was churning at the weekend.

According to The Times, Spanish giants Real Madrid are plotting a world-record £200m swoop for the 24-year-old.

If the mammoth transfer was to go ahead, it would make Kane the most expensive footballer in history, eclipsing Neymar’s summer switch to Paris Saint-Germain from Barcelona.

Gary Neville, though, thinks that Tottenham can relax as he believes that for the time being, Kane is going nowhere.

The former Manchester United captain said on the Gary Neville podcast:

“I saw some speculation this week linking him to Real Madrid but I would forget all the speculation surrounding Kane in this next 18 months. Spurs are never going to sell him. It’s the same with Dele Alli and Mauricio Pochettino will also not be allowed to leave during this period when there’s a new stadium coming.

“It’s such an important period in the club’s history that they need to make sure they go into that stadium with a good feeling. And the idea of your best two players, idols with the fans and also the manager, who is loved at Tottenham, leaving, it’s not going to happen and that’s a good thing for Tottenham.”
