Lucas Moura Admits Tottenham Would Struggle to Replace Harry Kane Amid Real Madrid & Man Utd Links

​Tottenham Hotspur forward Lucas Moura has admitted that replacing striker Harry Kane would be an incredibly tough task if the Englishman was allowed to leave the club this summer.

Kane sparked immense speculation by ​revealing that he does not plan on sticking around at Spurs if they cannot compete for silverware, with Real Madrid and Manchester United quickly linked with a deal.


Speaking during an Instagram Live meeting with ​Sky Sports, Moura urged ​Spurs to do whatever they can to keep ​Kane at the club because he is a one-of-a-kind talent.

"It's hard to speak about the future, about a negotiation because it's a personal decision," he began. "I'm sure that every season Tottenham receive offers for Harry Kane.

"It's not me who has to decide, but of course I want to play with him in the next season. I want to stay with him because he's very important for us and it's not easy to find a player like him.

"Everyone knows he's a big player. He's very important for us, he's our striker and scores almost every game. I'm sure that Mourinho wants to keep him. He counts on him for the rest of the season as well as for the next one."

Numerous outlets, including ​BBC Sport, have reported that Spurs will refuse to do business with a ​Premier League rival like ​United, and they don't intend to offload Kane anyway.

However, there have been plenty of rumours suggesting that a substantial offer could change their minds. A potential price tag of £200m was recently rumoured, and it was said that Spurs would accept such a figure as they want to ​pay off their debts from their new stadium.

​Real are long-term admirers of Kane, but they will almost certainly not pay that kind of money for the Englishman, especially since they intend to pursue both Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappé in the future.

A move away from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium appears increasingly unlikely for Kane, but that will not stop potential suitors from trying to tempt Spurs into doing business.
