Paper Talk: Madrid raid back on as Zidane shocked over long-term belief about Spurs man; Chelsea ace admits concern

Real Madrid could make a move for a Tottenham untouchable after he proved the Spanish giants wrong, while a Chelsea star admits concern – all in the latest Paper Talk.



Tottenham striker Harry Kane‘s form has seen him re-emerge as a top target for Real Madrid, according to a report.

The 27-year-old has scored 14 goals and assisted 12 others in 17 games in all competitions this season. However, he has shown his best form in the Premier League, contributing to 18 strikes.

Such an impact has led Jose Mourinho‘s men to the top of the table – and reportedly reignited interest from Spain.

Don Balon notes that Kane was previously a top target for Madrid in previous transfer windows.

However, his recent struggles with injury saw boss Zinedine Zidane rule the prospect of a move out ‘entirely’. Indeed, he picked up a serious hamstring issue last season.

In the 2018/19 campaign, meanwhile, an ankle problem ruled him out for a significant period.

But the Spanish report claims that Kane has been ‘reborn’ under Mourinho and has shaken off his injury concerns.

As such, Zidane has agreed to reinstate the England captain as a top target.

Should Kane leave Spurs, his transfer would be one of the most expensive ever. The striker’s current contract in north London runs out in 2024.
