5 reasons why Harry Kane should reject a move to Real Madrid
Harry Kane has taken the Premier League by storm since the last two years in England. He was touted to be a 'one-season wonder' after his eye-catching performances, netting 21 times in 34 league appearances in season 2014-15.
But, the 24-year-old has proved his haters wrong by winning the Premier League golden boot twice in the last two seasons and appears to be going strong even now.
It does make sense when we read or hear rumours of heavyweights vying for the Englishman's signature. That is completely inevitable. Kane is just 24 and already drawing comparisons with giants Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi after his exploits at White Hart Lane.
Out of all, Spanish emperors Real Madrid have already been fighting tooth and nail against a host of clubs to bring the Englishman to the capital. Although Kane has reiterated his desire to stay at the club, repeated failure at winning silverware might tempt the Englishman to switch sides.
However, will the move be an appropriate choice for the striker? Wouldn't the Premier League be a better option than the La Liga? Considering the points below, Kane should better give a second thought on his wish to play in the famous white shirt.
#5: A glimpse at the past
Speaking the truth, English stars have never quite made an impact in the La Liga. Of course, there are Steve Mcmanaman and Gary Lineker who oversaw successful stints with Real Madrid and Barcelona respectively.
However, there are a couple of names who have seen their ships bring wrecked after choosing Real Madrid above all clubs.
A fine example for Harry Kane can be led by Michael Owen. The Liverpool legend's decision to play for the Los Blancos backfired horribly. The last English player to win the famous 'World Player of the Year' award, Owen found himself warming the benches at the Spanish capital. Since then, the striker never truly recovered his potential.
Also, there's Jonathan Woodgate. Why the Los Merengues roped in the English defender is still a mystery to many. He paid his consequences later, starting with a red-card on his debut for the club. Next, it was David Beckham. Although the mercurial midfielder wasn't a failure at the Bernabeu, he failed to replicate his previous feats with the Red Devils at the Bernabeu.
Should Harry Kane decide to part his ways with Tottenham for the Spanish giants, the Englishman would better refrain from underestimating the importance of history.
