Real Madrid ‘keeping tabs on Harry Kane scenario’
Real Madrid are allegedly keeping an eye on Tottenham Hotspur attacker Harry Kane’s status ahead of a potential summer transfer.
Kane’s future is presently the subject of much debate as he enters the last 18 months of his contract.
According to a recent source, Tottenham have no intentions to sell the England international, with negotiations over a new contract due to begin in the summer.
Nevertheless, Kane has been linked with a move away from North London, with Manchester United and Bayern Munich also showing interest.
With the futures of Anthony Martial and Wout Weghorst uncertain, the Red Devils are prioritizing a striker in the summer transfer window. The latter is expected to return to Burnley when his loan spell ends at the end of the season.
While Napoli attacker Victor Osimhen has been mentioned, Kane has also been mentioned as a possible transfer target.
Erik ten Hag’s side are reportedly willing to make Kane the most expensive British player of all time, which would require them to outbid Manchester City’s £100 million price to Aston Villa for Jack Grealish in the summer of 2021.
Despite their admiration for Kane, Manchester United are unwilling to engage in protracted discussions with Tottenham.
Nevertheless, Bayern Munich believed to be interested in signing Kane as a replacement for Robert Lewandowski, who joined Barcelona last summer.
The two teams may have more competition, though, as the Daily Mail reports that Real Madrid is keeping an eye on the 29-year-old.
Karim Benzema is likely to sign a new one-year contract deal that would keep him at the Santiago Bernabeu until 2024, but the European champions are still looking to reinforce in the final third.
The French international has been plagued by injuries this season, and his absence has left Real Madrid short of center-forwards.
Los Blancos think Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy would want Kane to quit the club and move overseas.
If Kane does not sign an extension, Real Madrid may enter into pre-contract negotiations with him in January.
