Ancelotti informs Madrid board he wants to sign Kane from Spurs
Carlo Ancelotti has reportedly told the Real Madrid board that he wants to sign Harry Kane this summer.
With his contract at Tottenham set to expire next year, Kane could depart north London ahead of the new season.
talkSPORT understands that Spurs are confident of keeping their start player at the club beyond the summer.
Chairman Daniel Levy does not want to sell to a Premier League rival, which could therefore scupper Manchester United’s plans.
However, clubs across the continent could be of interest to Kane this summer, with 14-time Champions League winners Madrid being one of them.
Karim Benzema is set to leave the Santiago Bernabeu in the coming weeks amid links with a move to Saudi Arabia.
As a result, Kane could be the man to fill the void in their attack, with Ancelotti keen to bring him to Spain.
The Athletic report that the decorated manager informed Madrid of his desire to sign the striker during a ‘key meeting’.
Ancelotti was joined by club president Florentino Perez and general manager Jose Angel Sanchez.
Madrid’s board told Ancelotti that they will try and make a move possible, but said that there could be difficulties.
Kane has made 435 appearances for Spurs and scored 280 goals across all competitions.
This season saw him become the club’s all-time record scorer, as well as England’s.
His 30 goals in the Premier League was the 2nd highest tally for the campaign behind Erling Haaland.
Kane is also 48 goals away from beating the league’s record tally of 260 by Alan Shearer, so a move away would prevent him from claiming the crown.
