Former Tottenham midfielder Darren Anderton believes it would be very hard for Harry Kane to turn down an offer to join Real Madrid.

Reports in Spain on Wednesday claim the LaLiga giants are willing to offer Spurs THREE of their first-team stars in exchange for the red-hot England striker.

Kane, 24, has repeatedly assured the club and fans of his dedication to Tottenham, insisting he sees his long-term future at the bourgeoning club.

However, it is reported Real will offer Gareth Bale, Luka Modric and Karim Benzema in a swap deal to tempt the Premier League club into selling.

Tottenham have shown a willingness to sell star players in recent years.

The likes of Gareth Bale, Luka Modric, Dimitar Berbatov and Michael Carrick have all departed for just over £150million combined in recent years.

But this time they have made it clear to the chasing pack that Kane – who has scored 43 goals in 37 games this year and has been nominated for the Ballon d’Or – is not for sale.

The lure of joining one of the world’s biggest teams is hard to resist, though, and Anderton says it is up to Spurs to ensure Kane fulfils his dreams of achieving greatness at his boyhood club.

“You hope he’s Tottenham through and through,” Anderton told Press Association Sport. 

“The way he plays and the way he acts, it certainly looks like he’s happy where he is and hopefully he doesn’t forget that.

“I think he’ll want to complete his journey at Tottenham. He’ll want to play in that new stadium and he’ll want to be part of the Tottenham team that wins the league.

“But the club have got to go with him on that. If the offer comes in from say Real Madrid, it will be up to Spurs to turn it down. If you look at his age, his talent, the way he is, he’s got to be worth around £150million, even £200million now.

“If they say yes, Harry will get the chance to speak to them and I’m sure if he walks into the Bernabeu with an opportunity to sign, he’d find it very difficult not to. And would you blame him? You couldn’t, absolutely not.”
