Real Madrid no longer prioritising move for €110 million-rated striker

In a shocking turn of events, AS report that Harry Kane is no longer a priority target for Real Madrid. The Spanish club had the English striker identified as their next Galactico signing and were working hard on his arrival, but the sudden turn of events could see it collapse.

The report calls the process ‘cold’, primarily owing to the huge financial demands of Tottenham Hotspur. Real Madrid, as it appears, refuse to meet the Premier League side’s demands.

Last night, sources claimed that the two clubs held a meeting over Kane’s possible move and talked numbers during the proceedings. Spurs demanded a fee close to €110 million for their star while Los Blancos countered the offer with a proposal of €80 million plus bonuses.

However, it does not appear as if the English side are showing any flexibility on that front. In the end, a relatively trivial difference in valuation appears set to break talks down.

Considering that an agreement over the striker’s signature was said to be close less than 24 hours ago, it is difficult to believe that Real Madrid will give up their pursuit of the striker. Needless to say, the coming days will be crucial if there is to be a turnaround.

Los Blancos are in boiling water after the departure of Karim Benzema and Kane is one of the few names in world football who can claim to be a close replacement. After all, he has been a consistent performer for close to a decade now.

Dusan Vlahovic is an alternative Real Madrid have considered in the past and the doors for the Juventus star could reopen if talks with Tottenham indeed collapse. Roberto Firmino, Goncalo Ramos, and Joselu are some of the other names on the Merengues‘ table.

Real Madrid youngster Mario Martin finds himself at an interesting juncture in his fledgeling career.

The midfield prospect is well-liked at the club after impressing with Castilla in the past two seasons while first-team manager Carlo Ancelotti is also an admirer of the player.

While Martin seems to have reached the end of his cycle in Castilla, a spot in the first-team squad is not necessarily available right away, unless Dani Ceballos ends up leaving.

Plenty of interest in Mario Martin

Now, The Athletic reports that Mario Martin is a player in demand in La Liga with half the teams in the Spanish top flight eager to sign him up this summer.

As has already been reported, Real Valladolid and RCD Espanyol are understood to have shown a strong interest in the 20-year-old midfield talent.

However, it appears that there are a plethora of other clubs in La Liga who would be happy to sign Martin from Real Madrid in the current transfer window.

Martin wants to stay

But, the report states Martin is leaning towards staying put at Real Madrid at this point even though the prospects of regular first-team minutes are highly unlikely.

The 20-year-old, who has made four senior appearances for Los Blancos thus far, has a contract that runs until the summer of 2026.

Real Madrid, for their part, are not necessarily ruling out a sale provided a good offer comes along.

Even if they do part ways with Martin, the Spanish capital club would very much likely insert an affordable buyback clause as they have been doing in recent times for departing youth players.
