A recent report from Diario SPORT has offered an update on the list of players Real Madrid are targeting in the ongoing FIFA World Cup.

One of the players under the radar of the European champions is Harry Kane. The Tottenham Hotspur forward is, in fact, an ‘old wish’ of Real Madrid president Florentino Perez and the club are keen on securing his services.

This is because one of Real Madrid’s priorities in the market is to find a forward who can add more oomph to the goalscoring department. While Karim Benzema has been performing at the top of his game for two hours now, there are concerns that he may not continue his form for long, with age a major factor.

Benzema is likely to extend his current contract which expires at the end of the season. But Real Madrid are planning ahead for the future and want to snap up the services of a star striker, who can perform at the highest level for the years to come.

That is where Harry Kane comes into the fray. With 195 goals in 297 Premier League matches, the Englishman is known as one of the best strikers in world football right now, who has a stellar pedigree at the highest level.

Kane could thus be an excellent leader of the Real Madrid frontline, as he can not only offer goalscoring prowess but also provide creativity in the final third.

However, the report suggests Real Madrid are not on board with the idea of signing Kane for a fortune. The Englishman’s current price-tag of €90 million is considered as too high for the European champions.

Perez also knows that the presence of Daniel Levy as the chairman of Tottenham means there is no ground for negotiations, as far as the final price-tag is concerned. As such, the likelihood of Kane joining Real Madrid remains low, for the time being.

Following a solid end to his debut campaign at Real Madrid, Arda Guler is all set to play a key part for Turkey at the UEFA Euro 2024.

The 19-year-old wonderkid struggled with injuries during the first half of the last season at Real Madrid but eventually made the most of his chances towards the final phase of the campaign.

All in all, Guler finished the 2023/24 season with a tally of six goals from 12 matches, winning La Liga, Spanish Super Cup, and the UEFA Champions League.

Ahead of their Euro opener against Georgia next week, Turkey manager Vincenzo Montella gave an insight into how he plans to use the Real Madrid youngster – whether as a starter or from the bench, and his position.

“Arda generally played on the right wing in both Fenerbahçe and Real Madrid. If he played alone, he could be number ten, but for now, he seems to be closer to playing on the right wing,” said Montella (h/t Sporx).

On whether Guler is ready to start in the major European tournament, he added: “The most important thing is to be able to establish balance well. He played well in the last match, and we have the desire to start with him. However, I am still in the decision stage.”

So far, Guler has made seven appearances for the Turkish national team, in which he has netted one goal. And, he will be looking forward to adding to that tally at the Euros, whether he starts as a right-winger or a No. 10.
