In what could be a major boost for Real Madrid, Manchester United have decided to move on from their pursuit of Tottenham Hotspur superstar Harry Kane, reports The Times (h/t AS).

Kane is a top target for Real Madrid this summer as they look to replace Karim Benzema, who has signed for Al Ittihad in Saudi Arabia.

However, the Merengues were facing stiff competition from Manchester United, who were also keen on signing the England captain as they look for a top-quality No. 9.

But, as per the report, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy does not wish to sell Kane to a rival Premier League club, even though the 29-year-old would have welcomed the idea of playing for Manchester United.

As such, the Red Devils are looking at Atalanta’s Rasmus Hojlund as Plan B, clearing the pathway for Real Madrid to move for Kane as there are no other suitors for the England captain.

Levy is understood to be holding out for a fee of €115 million for his ace goalscorer, who netted 32 goals during the 2022/23 campaign.

But there is some hope within the Madrid camp that Manchester United’s exit from the race could lead to a drop in the asking price, possibly below the €100 million-mark.

Real Madrid are reportedly hoping to get the deal done for around €80 million and are not prepared to breach the €100 million barrier for Kane as he will be turning 30 next month and Florentino Perez feels it will be difficult to amortise his transfer.

Manchester United’s exit from the race does make things easier for Los Blancos in their pursuit of Kane. However, reaching an agreement with Levy will be a huge challenge on its own and it remains to be seen whether Perez & co. are successful in doing so.

Real Madrid’s attacking unit has been crippled by the loss of Karim Benzema earlier in the summer, which was followed by the loss of Vinicius Jr due to injury.

Although Vinicius has returned, there is much left to be desired from the Madrid frontline as we progress through to the season.

Real Madrid, though, are waiting on the arrival of Endrick. The young Brazilian is set to join the Real Madrid squad in the summer of 2024 when he turns 18.

Real Madrid impressed by Endrick

Endrick has already started his preparation for his pending move to Santiago Bernabeu, having performed exceptionally well in his native Brazil this year.

The youngster is constantly working on his game, in order to further improve himself as an attacker. It has left Real Madrid quite happy and eager for his arrival, reports Fabrizio Romano.

The journalist claims that Real Madrid have been keeping close tabs on everything Endrick has been doing, on and off the pitch, at Palmeiras.

And they have received very good reports on the 17-year-old, with the club impressed by how he is putting efforts to improve himself both performance-wise and in other facets.

Despite there being some question marks over his performances, the teenage forward is starting to showcase his potential, having scored five goals in five starts for Palmeiras.

Endrick also learning new languages

Endrick is not only just working on his performance. In fact, the Brazilian is also learning other languages in order to quickly settle into life in Spain.

The youngster can speak Portuguese, but he may have to master Spanish during his time at Santiago Bernabeu.

As mentioned earlier, Endrick can already speak Portuguese, which should go a long way in helping him team up with fellow Brazilians Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo.

Even Eder Militao can speak Portuguese, which should make it easier for Endrick to adapt to life in Spain, at least for the next year or so.
