Harry KaneIt was the news that all Tottenham Hotspur fans were dreading.

Harry Kane has been scouted not once, not twice but three times by Real Madrid, who are once again looking to cash in on their ‘special relationship’ with the north London club.

Said relationship has already cost Spurs Gareth Bale and Luka Modric, and not really given them very much in return. In fact, there is no denying that bar a chunk of cash going the way of Daniel Levy, Spurs had not really benefited from the relationship at all before putting it under review.

You may have thought that Los Blancos would send their squad players to Spurs on loan a la Chelsea and their feeder clubs, but that has not been the case. The deal, thus far, has been woeful for Spurs and now Kane is looking like being the latest in a growing line of players to be linked with the Spanish capital – and despite the partnership reportedly being cancelled, the links between the two clubs remain – and Kane is the man of the moment.

Fabio Coentrao and Jese have been linked with moves in the other direction, the latter on loan, but that does not mean they will come to pass. Nor are they anywhere near the level of Modric or Bale.

Kane could of course easily be a one season wonder – but looks like the real deal and has an improved contract with his current employers to prove it – but as we saw with Liverpool’s Luis Suarez, a new deal does not guarantee safety from the clutches of footballing giants like Real Madrid or Barcelona.

Spurs fans would predictably go mad should Kane be sold – for any amount of money – and quite rightly. You would have to think that Levy and the board would not let it happen – but when it comes to Real Madrid, the Champions of Europe have proven anything is possible.

Spurs fans. What are the chances you will let Kane leave for Real Madrid? How much does his new deal actually mean? Let us know your thoughts below, become a guest blogger or tweet us @LaFootyettes.

    Everyone scouts everyone, it’s a total non-story.
    Spurs announced several months ago that the relationship doesn’t exist any more (it was initially about commercial and coaching stuff).
    No-one in Spain would give any credence to this, just like they give no credibility to the Bale -> Man Utd nonsense which gets knocked around the UK media.

    It is not the news Spurs fans were dreading. This is pathetic speculation that has no substance whatsoever. Harry Kane has just signed a new extended contract and has said he loves the club and wants to stay with Spurs for the whole of his playing career. Local pride, passion and commitment, are qualities money cannot buy!

    Another 80 million should do it.
    Chump change for Madrid.

    The ‘special relationship’ was for development only and Daniel Levy said it was no longer live at the Annual AGM last November. If Real Madrid bid for anyone it is hard to keep them but I doubt they will be willing to pay enough, partly due to him being only in his first full successful season and partly because we will be asking a lot for him. He has just signed a new deal and says he wants to stay for 10 years so I am more concerned about Lloris.
