Stewart Robson believes it's in Gareth Bale's best interest to step out of the shadows of Real Madrid's abundance of talent. Therefore the Spanish giants are willing to spend some of their big names, in order to fund the purchase of the Tottenham Hotspur forward. The next three or four years are meant to be the best years of his career.
It is also the reason Zidane remains steadfast in his rotation policy, not just to rest key players in games against La Liga's lesser lights but also to ensure that he has match-ready replacements on hand when injuries affect his squad, as is almost inevitable when most are playing between 50 and 60 games a season. Considering Kane is being brought in to replace Benzema, it seems natural enough that the Frenchman be added to the deal. Whatever the outcome, Rose will be keen to get some time on the pitch with the World Cup approaching - has he burned his bridges at Spurs?
But Spanish news outlet Diaro Gol claims Los Blancos are cooking up the mouth-watering bid in the hope of changing Tottenham supremo Daniel Levy's mind. "You can feel that".
Swapping Bale for the Englishman would make perfect sense.
It is quite surprising to see that Madrid would be ready to let go of three of their biggest players in recent history. With the World Cup on the horizon, all parties will be eager to keep the other on side where there is no need to press international stars into unnecessary service. Benzema has been an invaluable asset in Madrid's frontline for a while now.
Paper Round's view: We can't help but wonder how good a swap a double golden boot-winning, 24-year-old massively in-form Kane would be for an injury-prone 28-year-old, even if they are Gareth Bale. Whether he is worth the quoted price of £179m is a matter worth arguing about.
It's suggested Spurs value star striker Kane at €200 million (£179 million), not far off the world-record £200 million that took Neymar from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain this past summer.
