Pochettino reveals the one condition on which he would let Kane join Real Madrid

The Tottenham striker is a reported target for Real but Pochettino hopes he stays in north London


Mauricio Pochettino admits Tottenham may be forced to sell Harry Kane to Real Madrid - if the striker pushes for the move.

The England striker is a reported target for Real after an incredible 2017 for club and country.

Zinedine Zidane has refused to comment on Real's interest and Pochettino has no plans to let him go.

But he concedes Tottenham may not be able to stand in Kane's way, if he wants to follow in the footsteps of Gareth Bale and Luka Modric.

"If you look at it from a the personal side, if the player asked to go like Modric or Bale, we would have to see but today that has not happened," he told El Chiringuito de Jugones.

"I hope that Harry Kane will be here for many years and bring lots of goals and victories and win some titles, that's what we want,

"Being responsible for a club like Tottenham, I would say if Real Madrid came, we would tell them we do not want to sell him. He would stay here and he would have to understand.

"Kane doesn't have a price because we love him here. He is off the market."

Kane was on the bench for the win over Swansea but is set to start against West Ham at Wembley on Thursday.

Speaking after the clash, Pochettino added: "‘We need to consider we are playing after 48 hours against West Ham, and the decision thinking the best for the team, the best for the player, and we are going to play in 48 hours, to manage that is so important."
