Even though things have gone quiet on the Real Madrid – Harry Kane front of late, the Tottenham Hotspur superstar continues to remain an option on the radars of the Spanish capital giants as a potential replacement for Karim Benzema.

Kane was linked quite heavily with a move to the Santiago Bernabeu, especially right after Benzema’s departure became official. However, the focus has shifted to the Kylian Mbappe transfer saga in recent weeks, with the England captain’s pursuit put on standby.

Taking advantage of the situation, Bayern Munich have made a move for Kane by lodging an offer of €70 million for the superstar striker, reports Fabrizio Romano.

The Bavarian giants lost their own goal-machine, Robert Lewandowski last year and failed to replace him adequately. As such, they are keen on addressing that mistake this time out and have identified Kane as their main target.

The England captain is entering the final year of his contract at Tottenham and is understood to be keen on leaving in order to win trophies.

However, there is no chance whatsoever that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy would be willing to accept an offer of just €70 million for his main man.

If previous reports are to go by, the Tottenham head honcho is seeking a figure in excess of €100 million for Kane – another reason why Real Madrid’s pursuit of him slowed down as the Merengues have doubts about spending so much on a player who turns 30 soon.

Kane’s situation continues to remain up in the air as things stand. As far as Real Madrid’s interest in him, much could depend on how the situation with Mbappe develops and whether Levy is willing to lower his demands for one of Europe’s most consistent and dangerous strikers.

Real Madrid 23-year-old striker close to finalising a move to Real Valladolid – report

After two years on loan at Getafe, former Real Madrid striker Juanmi Latasa has returned to the Spanish capital.

His performances, after all, were not enough to coerce his foster club to push for a permanent transfer.

The 23-year-old striker made 32 appearances for Getafe last season, including 15 starts. However, he only had two goals to show for his regular participation and it is safe to label his time at the club as a disappointment.

Now back in Madrid, Latasa is unlikely to get a chance to make a mark at the club. All signs point to a departure in the coming days.

The overwhelming favorite

As revealed in a recent report by Jorge C Picon, several first-division teams in Spain have reported interest in the young striker. Real Valladolid however, are the overwhelming favourites.

The La Liga side are looking for a striker with a good physical presence, height, a strong aerial presence and a knack for goal.

Latasa ticks all the boxes they demand and negotiations between the two clubs are expected to progress in the coming days.

Latasa’s sale, at this point, is thus taken for granted. Leganes and Espanyol are some of the other clubs interested in his services.

No scope in Madrid

Carlo Ancelotti, over the years, has not carved out a reputation as one who trusts academy stars heavily. In his defence, however, he has always had superior options available.

Heading into next season, Los Blancos have a packed forward department including Kylian Mbape, Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo Goes and Endrick.

Considering that the well-established Joselu himself saw no scope at the club next season, it is safe to say that Latasa understands his situation.

From Real Madrid’s perspective, it remains to be seen if they maintain any leverage on his future.
