- Barca have been searching for a striker for over a year now.
- Last summer, Bartomeu contacted Spurs over Harry Kane, Mundo Deportivo say.
- The Catalans wanted a great finisher and they saw that in the Englishman.
- The club, however, declared him non-transferable.
Harry Kane at Camp Nou? Sounds like a decent idea.
According to Catalan outlet Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona's president Josep Maria Bartomeu contacted Tottenham Hotspur last summer. In search of a centre-forward, Blaugrana had Harry Kane on their wishlist.
The La Liga giants wanted a great finisher and thought of the 26-year-old as a good option. The England international has scored 136 goals in 201 league appearances.
His European record is impressive as well: he has bagged 20 goals in 24 Champions League matches. With numbers like these, no wonder the club were interested in him.
Unfortunately, the negotiations never started as Spurs' CEO Danie Levy declared the striker non-transferable right away.
