Real Madrid have set their sights on a high-profile striker to fill the huge void left by Karim Benzema’s exit. Linked copiously to the club, Harry Kane is a name that has most often been discussed as a valid successor.

The Tottenham Hotspur striker has established himself as one of football’s most complete centre-forwards, boasting a unique and versatile skillset.

In the absence of Benzema, Real Madrid’s interest in such a profile would greatly bolster the attack. Kane also appears to be willing to take his talents to the Spanish capital.

According to Laurie Whitwell of The Athletic, the historic prestige of Real Madrid especially lures the Englishman.

The Merengues’ winning culture is something that attracts most top talents, and given Kane’s tumultuous time at Spurs with regard to a lack of trophies, it is only natural that a move to the Santiago Bernabeu appeals to him.

However, the report also argues that Kane also has his eyes fixed on breaking Alan Shearer’s all-time Premier League goal record. Shearer holds a record of 260 goals, while Kane is currently at 213.

At the age of 29, time is running down for Kane as he nears the final phases of his career. Despite securing himself an incredible amount of appreciation for his creative prowess as well as goalscoring instincts, the lack of trophies are the one argument smearing his legacy.

Joining the Merengues, Kane has the opportunity to lead an attack alongside gifted individuals like Vinicius jr and Rodrygo. The striker’s ability to create exquisite relationships with runners and dribblers will allow him to spearhead Madrid to new heights.

With Daniel Levy also reportedly in favour of selling his most prized possession to teams not residing in the Premier League, Kane has the option to spread his wings in a new environment, where he is most likely to transform his innate abilities into silverware.

However, his €115 million price tag is something that Real Madrid might be reluctant to meet and given Levy’s reputation as a tough negotiator, it remains to be seen if an agreement is reached between the two parties.

Real Madrid usurped the top spot in the La Liga standings from arch-rivals FC Barcelona as they defeated Girona 3-0 away at Estadi Montilivi.

It was a fine performance from Carlo Ancelotti’s men against Michel’s side, with the returning Jude Bellingham leading the way for his team.

After being benched against Las Palmas in midweek, the England international returned to the starting XI today and turned in yet another Man of the Match display for Real Madrid.

It all started with Joselu opening the scoring just 15 minutes into the game, with Bellingham assisting the goal with a special, outside-of-the-boot pass from the left side, bringing back memories of Luka Modric doing something similar a few years ago.

Talking about that special pass, Bellingham said: “I’ve been watching Luka every day for months. I just want to be creative. It took the pressure off us at the start.”

On the match and the result, the 20-year-old stated that it was a good day across the board for Real Madrid, as he said: “It was an important win. They were doing very well. We made a statement of intent to La Liga. Three goals, a clean sheet….”

It has been a truly remarkable start to life at Real Madrid for Bellingham and expressing how he feels to play for the Merengues, he exclaimed:

“I feel very good. I have freedom of movement and I’m enjoying football. Whenever I put on this shirt I always try to do my best.”

Apart from assisting Joselu’s opener, Bellingham also got his name on the scoresheet in the second period. Talking about his goal, the wonderkid said:

“It wasn’t a very good finish. I could have scored some more, but the important thing is the victory.”

The strike meant that Bellingham now has seven goals and two assists across all competitions for Real Madrid. Reflecting on his brilliant start, he said:

“It’s a good start, not bad. I would like to continue on this path and I won’t always score or assist, but I will always give my best.”

Bellingham’s celebration has been a huge hit, with kids in school, players from other clubs, and many others mimicking it. When asked how his special celebration originated, he replied:

“I don’t know where I first celebrated. I think it was with Birmingham. It’s an inspiration to see kids doing it in schools. It’s a wonderful thing.”
