Harry Kane has emerged as a potential option for Real Madrid lately, amid uncertainties over the future of Karim Benzema.

The Frenchman was expected to extend his contract at Bernabeu until 2024, but Real Madrid now believe the veteran is strongly considering a move to Saudi Arabia, after receiving a lucrative offer from the government.

This has forced Real Madrid to look for attacking options in the market, with Kane emerging as the ideal option.

The Tottenham star was an option for Real Madrid last summer, but a move did not materialise as Daniel Levy had no intention of offloading the star player. This time around, there is a feeling Kane might leave Spurs, with his contract at the club expiring in 2024.

However, according to MARCA, there has been no contact between Real Madrid and Tottenham regarding the sale of Kane. It appears Levy still does not want to negotiate with Los Blancos and get rid of Kane this summer.

Spurs are also not interested in Eden Hazard becoming a part of the deal. Real Madrid, for their part, have accepted that the Belgian will remain at the Bernabeu until the end of next season.

The report also suggests that Real Madrid have shifted their focus in recent weeks. Keeping in mind they will be reinforced by the arrival of Endrick in 2024, the Spanish giants are looking for a short-term option. So it will not come as a surprise to see the club not going after Kane in a fully-fledged manner this summer.

The coming weeks could be crucial as far as both Real Madrid and Kane are concerned. The Englishman, for his part, must either commit one more year to Spurs or leave the club by highlighting the moral obligation Levy had made last summer.

How Manchester United’s pursuit of Dutch star could benefit Real Madrid

The highly anticipated transfer of Leny Yoro to Real Madrid has encountered an unexpected obstacle, with Manchester United’s surprise entry into the race. 

The Red Devils have successfully negotiated a substantial €50 million+ bid with Lille, leaving Real Madrid’s chances hanging by a thread. 

This means the only factor still in favour of Real Madrid is Yoro’s strong desire to wear the iconic white shirt, a dream he has harboured for a long time.

As things stand, Real Madrid face significant hurdles. For once, Lille are exerting pressure on the player to accept Manchester United’s offer, given its considerable value. 

On the other hand, Real Madrid are hesitant to match this figure, creating a stalemate. Additionally, Manchester United are eager to secure a top-notch defender, especially with the departure of Raphael Varane, a former Real Madrid player. 

This sense of urgency is driving United’s pursuit of Yoro, making them a formidable competitor in the transfer race.

A glimmer of hope for Real Madrid

As it turns out, Manchester United are also considering Bayern Munich defender Matthijs de Ligt as a priority target. De Ligt has given his nod to the move and has instructed his representatives to disregard other offers. 

This development provides Real Madrid with a much-needed advantage in the pursuit of Yoro, as United’s focus is divided between two top defenders.

While Manchester United have made progress in negotiations with both De Ligt and Yoro, it is unlikely that they will recruit both players. 

Given De Ligt’s readiness to make an immediate move, Manchester United are expected to prioritize his transfer, leaving Real Madrid as the sole contender for Yoro’s signature. 

This twist in the tale gives Real Madrid a glimmer of hope, as they can now focus their efforts on convincing Yoro to join their ranks.

Yoro’s dilemma: To wait for Madrid or join United

Yoro’s preference is to join Real Madrid, but the club has yet to indicate its willingness to match Lille’s accepted fee from Manchester United.

This has led the Ligue 1 club to favour a transfer deal with the Premier League club. 

If Yoro is to make a move this summer, he faces a difficult decision: either wait until 2025 to join Real Madrid for free, which Lille are unlikely to accept, or agree to a transfer to Manchester United, which would benefit the French club.

The outcome of Yoro’s transfer now hangs precariously in the balance. Real Madrid’s reluctance to match Manchester United’s offer and Yoro’s personal preference for the Spanish giants are the key factors in this high-stakes transfer drama. 

Will Yoro choose to wait for his dream move to Real Madrid or opt for a switch to Manchester United? Only time will tell. 

In the end, Yoro’s transfer will have significant implications for all parties involved. Real Madrid’s hopes of landing their top target hang in the balance, while Manchester United’s urgency to recruit a top defender has thrown a spanner in the works. 

Lille, too, are eager to cash in on their prized asset, and Yoro’s decision will determine the fate of his transfer.

But with United going after De Ligt, it could end up playing into the hands of Real Madrid, helping them land their top target to replace Nacho.
