Harry Kane: Real Madrid want Tottenham striker to replace Karim Benzema


In order to replace Karim Benzema, Real Madrid’s primary target is Harry Kane.

The 29-year-old Kane still has one year left on his Tottenham deal and is unsure of his next step.

The Spanish powerhouses are in need of a new striker following Benzema’s exit after 14 years with the organization.

They also have Victor Osimhen of Napoli, Lautaro Martinez of Inter Milan, Kai Havertz of Chelsea, and Dusan Vlahovic of Juventus on their list of objectives.

But Kane, England’s all-time leading scorer, is well admired by 14-time European winners Real, who are hoping the departure of a number of their high-earning players this summer will aid their bid.

This summer’s departures of Benzema, Mariano Diaz, Marco Asensio, and Eden Hazard from Real Madrid increase their transfer and wage budget.by 77m euros (£66m).

English midfielder Jude Bellingham, a former player for Birmingham City, is still in talks with Real about a transfer.

But Daniel Levy, the chairman of Tottenham, wants to keep Kane at his old club and is reportedly asking for more than £100 million, a sum Real would be hesitant to pay.

Kane is 47 goals short of Alan Shearer’s Premier League goalscoring record of 260 with 280 goals in 435 appearances for Spurs.

When he attempted to arrange a transfer to Manchester City two summers ago, they managed to cling onto him at the time.

But Kane’s future in north London is uncertain because Spurs won’t be able to qualify for the Champions League next year, and he hasn’t yet won a significant prize. Real will be hoping that Kane’s ambition for major titles would entice him to transfer to Spain.

Ange Postecoglou, the manager of Celtic, will begin negotiations with Tottenham in the coming days. Tottenham are still without a manager following a poor season that finished with Ryan Mason serving as the interim manager.

The 35-year-old Benzema, who won the Ballon d’Or and joined the Spanish powerhouses from Lyon in 2009, leaves Real on a free transfer after winning five Champions Leagues and four La Liga championships with Madrid.
