HARRY KANE might not find it as easy to score goals at Real Madrid as he has Tottenham, according to club legend Figo, Express.co.uk reports.
Kane has been a prolific goalscorer for Tottenham, having already passed 20 Premier League goals for the season, the fourth time in a row he has managed the feat.
His form even earned him a place in the world’s top 10 players at the Ballon d’Or voting and the striker is now reportedly being courted by Real Madrid.
His Spurs team-mate Dele Alli is also said to be on Real president Florentino Perez’s wanted list, a meteoric rise for the 21-year-old who move to north London from MK Dons just three years ago.
But Figo, who joined Madrid from Barcelona in 2000 in a then-massive £50m move, believes the pair must not expect to slot straight into the same vein of form if he does make the switch to the Bernabeu.
“They are very good players, top players, but one thing is to play in Tottenham and the other thing is to play in Real Madrid, no?” said Figo, speaking at the Laureus 2018 World Sports Awards.
“This is not missing respect of Tottenham. It is like what it is.
“It’s playing in Real Madrid, it’s different in terms of pressure, there is a lot of pressure too.
“Of course Kane is fantastic and Dele Alli too.
“I love to see them play and they are doing fantastic.”
The pair will also likely be at the forefront of England’s 2018 World Cup campaign when Gareth Southgate leads the side this summer.
Meanwhile, former Barcelona forward Ronaldinho says Kane “could walk into any team in Europe”.
Ronaldinho believes Kane has taken his game to new heights, warning Spurs will have a tough test to keep their star despite the club being adamant the striker will stay.
“Harry Kane has been a great player for a while now – but there is no doubt this season he has hit a new level,” he said, as reported by The Mirror.
“He is now at the level where any team in the world would want him – he could walk into any team in Europe.
“Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester City, it doesn’t matter how strong the team, he is now one of those few players in the world that any team would have to make room for if they had the chance to sign him.
“Over the last windows we have seen that the biggest clubs in Europe have paid whatever fees needed to sign the best players in the world.”
“For maybe four or five clubs they are now at a stage where the fee is not important if they want the player they pay what they have to.”
