Liverpool v Tottenham Hotspur - Premier League
Spurs hitman is a target for Madrid

This is just going to happen, isn’t it? It’s been a long time since Real Madrid have spent big in the transfer market. With Barcelona doing exactly what they once despised about their eternal rivals, it is time for the capital club to do the same.

Right now, the key is to sign a goalscorer. With Karim Benzema’s lack of form and Cristiano Ronaldo’s evident decline due to age, it is about time that Madrid signed someone who can guarantee goals. And is there anyone better to sign than the best number 9 in the world: Harry Kane?

The Englishman broke the Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi duopoly of being the highest goal scorer in Europe in a calendar year. He scored 56 goals for Tottenham Hotspur in the calendar year of 2017—more than any other player in the world.

And now, Madrid are circling around him—and here are 5 reasons why the transfer will happen…

#5 Tradition

When something happens continuously for a span of time, it becomes a tradition and we can always expect it to be repeated. When Luka Modric was wreaking havoc against other teams in the Premier League while at Tottenham, Madrid came and snapped him up.

And then when Gareth Bale became the most prominent figure for the Lilywhites, he too was acquired by the Blancos for a then world record fee. And now, Harry Kane is flying high in the colours of Tottenham and Madrid would want to keep the tradition going.

With 56 goals in the last calendar year, he is the perfect player for the club. In fact, his signing is likely to cost a fortune—somewhere around the yet-untouched £200 million mark—making him the most expensive player of all time.

And keeping the tradition intact.
