Ryan Giggs believes Harry Kane could follow Bale to Real Madrid
The Manchester United legend, and new Wales manager, spoke about the Tottenham Hotspur striker and how winning titles abroad may be his preferred route.
Ryan Giggs, the former Manchester United winger and recently appointed Wales national team manager, spoke with SkySports about the future of Tottenham Hotspur striker, Harry Kane, and suggested that a move abroad could be something that he is considering.
Bale-ing on Spurs
Harry Kane has been filling the nets of Spurs' opposition for the last few years following a number of loan spells away from the London club. His rise in stature has pushed Pochettino's side to new levels of consistency and with a solid supporting cast around him they have proved themselves a team that can compete with the very best.
The goal-scoring form of the Englishman has caught the eye of Europe's elite, with rumours rife about a mega-money transfer offer coming in from the current European and LaLiga champions, Real Madrid. And that potential move is something that Giggs believe could be part of the 24-year old's very excting future although also accepts that there is something special about success with your home club.
"When a player goes to a team where they are going to be competing for leagues and trophies then you go up another level," said the Welsh legend, "but winning things with a club where you've come through the ranks is different and more special, so you'd prefer to do that, especially with a brilliant manager and the new stadium coming.
Tough competition for Tottenham
"It is about their golden generation of young players stepping up and winning things, but it is not easy because they're competing with United and City, while Chelsea also have the money.
"He might also be looking abroad, and maybe seeing what Gareth Bale has achieved in winning three Champions League titles with Real Madrid."
