Ex-Spurs boss Harry Redknapp spoke exclusively to talkSPORT, and predicted that Harry Kane will stay at Tottenham, in spite of reported interest from Real Madrid for his signature.

The 24-year-old striker has been excellent this season, scoring 26 goals in 27 appearances in all competitions, and he has now firmly established himself as one of Europe's hottest commodities, having finished 2017 as the continent's top goalscorer.

Unfortunately for Spurs though, his fine performances have not gone unnoticed, with Madrid keen on bringing the England international to the Bernabeu, according to the Express.

Redknapp, who gave Kane his debut for Tottenham in 2011, believes he will remain in north London though.

The 70-year-old spoke exclusively to talkSPORT, and suggested that the 24-year-old will be more than happy to remain at Spurs:

“I don’t see Harry Kane being a player who leaves Tottenham. I think he’s happy there. If he gets a good contract and he’s looked after I don’t seem him chasing big dreams elsewhere. Tottenham beat Real Madrid this season. At Barcelona, with the players they have got there and the way they play [would he fit in]? Tottenham are a big club, they are in the top four or five clubs in this country so I would think he’s quite happy. His life is probably fantastic at the moment."

Redknapp went on to say how much Tottenham should pay their star man:

"Well, with Raheem Sterling they are talking about £250,000 a week so Harry Kane has got to be £300,000 a week. It’s great for Tottenham if they can hang onto their players.”

Daniel Levy insisted that the club have no intentions of selling any of their best players, but things can change quickly in football, and it would be interesting to see if Tottenham's stance changes, should a mammoth bid come in for Kane.
