Real Madrid eye Harry Kane swap deal
Real Madrid are ready to pounce on the uncertainty surrounding Harry Kane’s future with a huge offer including Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez.
And the La Liga giants are considering making an approach this summer.
It is said Real are cautious of dealing with Daniel Levy after their dealings with the Tottenham chairman on deals for Bale and Luka Modric in the past.
But Kane’s recent admission that he could leave the club along with the current financial situation due to the coronavirus pandemic has given Real hope they could potentially swoop in this summer.
