Real Madrid ‘ready to offer Gareth Bale, Luka Modric and Karim Benzema’ for Tottenham star Harry Kane – REPORTS
Are Gareth Bale and Luka Modric on their way back to Tottenham?

Real Madrid are ready to offer THREE of their star players to tempt Tottenham into parting with red-hot striker Harry Kane.
According to reports in Spain, the LaLiga giants are willing to offer former Spurs aces Gareth Bale and Luka Modric, plus Karim Benzema, in exchange for the England international.
Kane is one of the most in-form strikers in world football right now after scoring 15 goals in his last ten appearances for club and county, and has been named in a the 30-man shortlist for the Ballon d’Or.
It has been suggested Spurs value their homegrown goalscorer at £179m (€200m), but Diario Gol claim Real president Florentino Perez will attempt to get the price down by offering big names as part of a player-plus-cash deal.
In an ideal world, Real would apparently only offer Welsh wizard Bale as part of a swap deal, but, according to the report, his injury record since joining Los Blancos has decreased his value significantly, which is why Benzema could be included.
The 29-year-old French striker would be a direct replacement for Kane, and it is claimed both Bale and Benzema would bring the fee down to £35.7m (€40m).
But if that’s not enough for Sprus chairman Daniel Levy to part with his star asset, Real are also prepared to offer Modric to seal the transfer.
The Croatian was a hit at Spurs and has developed into the one of the best midfeidlers in the world during his time in Spain.
But he turns 33 next year and Real are willing to let him go, with a number of emerging players potentially able to replace him.
