- Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has shown his interest in Totteham striker Harry Kane
- According to Zidane, the Tottenham forward, is a complete striker
- Spanish giants Real Madrid are reportedly plotting a £150m deal for Kane
Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has showed admiration for Tottenham striker Harry Kane describing him as a ‘complete striker.’
Zidane paid a glowing tribute to in-form Kane on the eve of their Champions League showdown with Tottenham in what sounded like the start of the Spanish giants going public with their attempts to sign him.
Los Blancos are plotting a huge £150m move for Kane next summer and Zidane’s comments suggest the England star is likely top of his transfer hit-list.
The Real Madrid gaffer’s remarks are certain to turn up the heat before the clash in the Bernabéu with Tottenham increasingly concerned about the growing interest in their prize asset.
Zidane said: “In the present what he’s doing, he’s a very important player, a key player for Tottenham, very good at everything but he always does it all towards the goal.
“He does not stay, he takes the space with speed and he’s very good. He’s a complete player. He didn’t seem to be but in the end he is.”
It was a clear mind game tactic to turn up the pressure and the Spanish media are convinced they will move for Kane and his Spurs team mate Dele Alli.
Kane, 24, who has scored 15 goals in his last 11 games, admitted two weeks ago he could consider moving abroad in the future.
But Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris insists that Kane will not be distracted by Real Madrid’s public overtures.
Lloris said: “It’s part of football. It’s been going on for a while now. It happens every week. It’s about for there to be speculation about Harry Kane. He’s done such fantastic things for Tottenham and for sure will continue in this way.
“Harry has talked enough about his commitment to Tottenham and his love for the club. It’s just part of football through the media. He will not be distracted. Quite the opposite.”
Real Madrid battle Tottenham today, October 17, at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu in matchday three of the UEFA Champions League.
