Another Harry Kane goal – this time in Europe – looks to have sent his potential fee soaring yet again.
Maybe as high as £268million as Real look to start new Galacticos’ roster.
Kane struck back for Tottenham after Juventus had taken an early 2-0 lead in Tuesday’s Champions League showdown in Turin.
The visitors escaped from the first leg with a creditable 2-2 draw after Christian Eriksen’s equaliser.
But, as ever, all eyes were on England striker Kane.
And with ‘a high-ranking source ‘ at Sports Illustrated claiming Real Madrid could spend up to £530million this summer, Kane is almost certain to be top of that list.
The 24-year-old has fired 101 Premier League goals in 126 starts and has has been just as prolific in very other domestic and European competition.
Not to mention 12 strikes in 23 England appearances.
When Real do inevitably come knocking, they’ll find Spurs chairman in a notoriously hard bargaining mood.
That’s if the La Liga giants can actually persuade Levy to open negotiations fro his super duper prise asset.
If so Spanish sources are certain he’ll start by demanding more than the current world record transfer of £198m.
That’s how much Paris Saint-Germain paid Barcelona for Neymar last summer.

A fee upwards of €300m has been mentioned – that’s £268m.
Don’t forget that Kane’s his profile and value could grow even more this summer if his shooting boots bring more riches for England at the World Cup in Russia.
Meanwhile, Sports Illustrated say Real are also considering Spurs coach Mauricio Pochettino as a potential replacement for Zinedine Zidane.

They hugely admire Pochettino, even if he hasn’t won a Premier League title and remains under contract through 2021.

The Real Madrid source says that barring a complete fiasco against PSG, the club doesn’t want to fire Zidane.
Instead they think he will likely choose on his own to walk away from Madrid this summer.
If Real could land Kane and Pochettino they would follow Gareth Bale and Luka Modric, both of whom signed on at the Bernabeu from Spurs.
