Real Madrid have a serious interest in English superstar Harry Kane and are reportedly preparing an offer for the striker.
Spanish Outlet Marca have reported that Madrid have held talks with the player and have been working on the transfer for over 10 days now. Kane has also given them the green light on a transfer.
Madrid are preparing an initial offer of €80 million for Kane as they hope to sign him for less than his transfer value as he only has a year left on his contract. It is hard to see Spurs chairman Daniel Levy accepting this offer though.
Kane is reported to be interested in a move away from England, which comes as a surprise to some. There was a feeling in England that he aims to break the all-time goal-scoring record in the Premier League and hence won’t leave the country. He is currently 2nd on the list behind Alan Shearer.
The Englishman had also been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United and journalist Fabrizio Romano had confirmed that he is United’s priority in the summer. United may miss out though as Spurs’ asking price is considered unreasonable.
It may be the near certain promise of winning major honours at Real Madrid that has wooed Kane to consider a move to the Spanish capital. There is no doubting that he has the world-class ability to be the main man at Madrid.
It was also reported earlier in the month that Daniel Levy had decided to not sell Kane to any rivals in the Premier League and hence it is entirely possible that Kane has had to consider a move elsewhere.
Real Madrid are looking to replace a superstar of their own in Karim Benzema, who has moved to Al Ittihad in Saudi Arabia to see out the last couple of years of his career. Benzema leaves a void that perhaps only a few can fill and Kane might be one of those few.
The England captain has scored 30 goals in this season’s Premier League even while his team were struggling throughout the season and ended up finishing 8th. His goals tally was higher than 4 of the golden boot winners in Europe’s top 5 leagues.
Nothing is confirmed yet though as Levy will drive a hard bargain as he does not want to lose Kane from an already struggling squad. Madrid will likely have to pay more than the €100 million mark if they want to interest Levy into accepting an offer.
Jude Bellingham is already on his way to Madrid for a fee in excess of €100 million and if Kane signs as well, the new Galacticos era at Real Madrid could have two English jewels at the heart of it.
