Real Madrid’s hunt for a new striker: Kane tops their list
In the aftermath of Karim Benzema’s departure, Real Madrid is on the lookout for a new striker. And who better to fill this void than Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane?
Their Search For A New Striker:
Napoli’s Victor Osimhen, Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martinez, Chelsea’s Kai Havertz and Juventus’ Dusan Vlahovic are some of the other players on Los Blancos’ radar. But they seem particularly keen on England’s record goalscorer.
However, Spurs Chairman Daniel Levy wants to keep his star player at North London. He has set an asking price upwards of £100m that might discourage Real from pursuing him further.
Kane vs Shearer:
Kane has scored 280 goals in 435 appearances for Spurs and is only 47 goals away from breaking Alan Shearer’s Premier League scoring record of 260.
Tottenham Without A Manager:
Tottenham ended their season under interim boss Ryan Mason after a disappointing campaign. They’re yet to appoint a permanent manager but will reportedly open talks with Ange Postecoglou soon.
A Desire For Major Trophies:
Kane has previously expressed his desire to win major trophies which he hasn’t been able to do at Spurs so far. Now with them failing to qualify for next season’s Champions League, it remains unclear what lies ahead in his future career. Real Madrid might find this to be the perfect opportunity to lure him away.
After 14 years with the club, Karim Benzema has left Real Madrid on a free transfer. He won five Champions Leagues and four La Liga titles during his time there.
The Ball Is In Tottenham’s Court:
Harry Kane still has one year left on his contract with Spurs, but it is uncertain whether he will extend it or not. It remains to be seen if Levy can hold onto his prized asset amidst interest from Europe’s elite clubs like Real Madrid.
