Sports: If Harry Kane does not move to Real Madrid within the next two years he will never leave Tottenham Hotspur, claims Lothar Matthaus

Harry Kane should move to Real Madrid within the next two years if he wants to play for the LaLiga giants in his career, according to Germany great Lothar Matthaus.

The Tottenham striker has been linked with a Bernabeu transfer in recent years thanks to his splendid form for the Premier League club and England.

Kane has 146 goals in 187 games for Spurs

Kane and Spurs have a crunch Champions League match at PSV Eindhoven – a game you can listen to live on talkSPORT– on Wednesday night knowing anything other than a win will effectively end their hopes of reaching the last 16.

A failure to make a mark in Europe’s elite competition could lead to an exodus of Spurs players including the likes of Kane.

However, when asked by a Marca journalist after England’s Nations League win over Spain if he would like to move to Real Madrid, Kane replied: “Sorry, not today.”

But Matthaus believes the prospect of moving to arguably the biggest club in the world will be hard for Kane to turn down.

Writing in his column for The Sun, Matthaus said: “He [Kane] is 25 now. If he does not go in the next two years, by the time he is 27, he will never leave.

“If he did, Real are the only club that would be right for him. Real shine brighter than any other club in the world.

“Let’s be honest, it’s not a question of whether he would be ready next summer or the one after, or the following year. He was ready last week.

“He has the quality and the experience, he knows how to score against anybody. He has that confidence in himself.

“The question is whether Kane wants to leave Spurs, England, the Premier League. He’d never leave Spurs for another Premier League club.

“It would have to be something special for him to leave the club. But if it’s going to happen, it will have to be soon.”

Matthaus went on to say how Real made an approach for him when he was an Inter Milan player in 1991, however, Inter president at the time Ernesto Pellegrini would not let him go.

But the 1990 World Cup winner believes Spurs chairman Daniel Levy would let Kane go if the striker really wanted the move.
