Former Tottenham Hotspur player, Rafael van der Vaart gave advice to the club’s mainstay striker Harry Kane. This is related to the news about the possibility of Kane leaving Spurs at the end of the season.
Kane has recently been reportedly being hunted by Real Madrid. Kane is said to be an alternative target for Los Blancos if they fail to anchor Erling Braaut Haaland from Borussia Dortmund.
Van der Vaart thinks joining Madrid is not a wise choice for Kane. He even suggested Kane choose Manchester United if he really wanted to leave Spurs.
“He is currently the best striker after Robert Lewandowski, and he is a mainstay player at Tottenham Hotspur. Usually, British players do not have much success when they join Madrid, “said Van der Vaart as quoted by Goal.
“Maybe this sounds a little crazy, but he was once said to be close to joining Manchester United or other clubs. I think he is better off there and staying in England, “he added.
Reflecting on history, there have been several English players who have tasted La Liga competition with Madrid. Steve McManaman was the first English player to join Madrid in 1999. David Beckham and Michael Owen also played in Madrid in 2003 and 2004.
