Real Madrid showing serious interest in Spurs sensation

Real Madrid are watching Spurs’ in-form striker start Harry Kane and have had scouts assess him in three games this season, according to the London Evening Standard.

The 21-year-old centre-forward took his goal tally for the season to a whopping 20 over the weekend with a match-winning double against Arsenal in the north London derby, capping his rise from a fringe player at the start of the campaign to Mauricio Pochettino’s main man up front.

And his headline grabbing performances this season seem to have alerted Real, who are keeping a close eye on the industrious marksman’s efforts.

Reports claim that Los Blancos have has scouts in England to watch Kane on at least three occasions, and they have been impressed with his showings.

Although there are no immediate plans to move for the striker, who recently penned a new long-term contract at White Hart Lane, Tottenham fans would be forgiven for feeling a little nervous given Real’s previous interactions with the club.

Both Gareth Bale, for a World Record £86m, and Luka Modric have moved to Madrid in recent times, with the two sides having a close off-field relationship.

Like Spurs, Kane has not immediate desire to break up his partnership with the Lilywhites.
