Real Madrid fear they have been priced out of Harry Kane deal with United actively monitoring
Real Madrid may be forced to seek alternatives to Harry Kane due to Tottenham Hotspur’s extortionate valuation.
As expected, Daniel Levy will not his star man leave on the cheap.
Spanish outlet AS has reported that Madrid’s interest in Kane has now cooled, as they do not see a way in which they can sanction the arrival of an almost-30-year-old player for over £100 million.
Carlo Ancelotti had earmarked the prolific forward as a replacement for club legend Karim Benzema, who agreed a big-money move to Saudi Pro League side Al-Ittihad this week.
Madrid’s reluctance could work in United’s favour
However, it’s looking like that search will continue over the summer transfer window, which could give Manchester United the chance to swoop in and try and lure Kane towards Old Trafford.
Finding the back of the net has proven to be troublesome for the Reds over the past season, hence why an out-and-out No.9 is top of Ten Hag’s summer shortlist.
Kane now boasts all-time top goalscorer status for both his club and national team, and he’s 47 goals away from knocking Alan Shearer off the top ‘scorer spot in the Premier League rankings – has there ever been a more perfect match than Kane in the red of England’s most successful club?
