Harry Kane has once again become the centre of attention ahead of the upcoming summer transfer window.

With the forward having just 12 months remaining on his current contract at Tottenham, many expect him to leave the club at the end of the season. His situation has alerted Real Madrid, who were in contention to sign the player last summer.

However, Real Madrid are not the only club interested in the services of Kane, with the Englishman also being courted by Bayern Munich. The German giants are in the market for a top-class forward after being almost beaten by Dortmund for the Bundesliga title this term.

But according to Christian Falk, Harry Kane has decided to reject a move to Bayern Munich this summer. This is a significant boost for Real Madrid, as they continue to harbour hopes of signing the Englishman next season.

Amid growing fears over Karim Benzema’s continuity at Santiago Bernabeu, Real Madrid have had to step up their efforts to sign a new striker ahead of the new season.

The Spanish giants have been linked with a move for Roberto Firmino lately, with the Liverpool striker set to become a free transfer in the coming summer. But a proven superstar such as Kane could be a much better option for a club like Real Madrid.

With 280 goals in 435 matches for Tottenham, Kane has an excellent track record at the highest level of football and can help Real Madrid once again fight for the Champions League title next season while challenging Barcelona for the league crown.

But on the flip side, Real Madrid could think about the future, especially as they look to sign either Kylian Mbappe or Erling Haaland in 2024. Splashing the cash on Kane this summer, therefore, could complicate matters, as far as the club are concerned.

Real Madrid missed out on the signing of Leny Yoro after deciding not to match Manchester United’s offer for the 18-year-old defender.

With the French prodigy now on his way to the Premier League, Los Blancos are assessing their options before deciding whether to sign a new centre-back or not.

As things stand, the reigning champions of Spain and Europe seem to be leaning towards relying on their existing options rather than going into the market.

Jesus Vallejo unlikely to leave

As such, MARCA reports that the likelihood of Jesus Vallejo leaving the club have now significantly reduced.

Indeed, the 27-year-old out-of-favour defender now appears more and more likely to continue at Real Madrid beyond this summer.

Vallejo returned to the Santiago Bernabeu after finishing his loan stint at Granada during which he hardly played due to injury and fitness woes.

As such, reports suggested that Carlo Ancelotti & co. were not planning on counting on him next season, even though he was handed a new shirt number recently.

But with the Leny Yoro operation collapsing and Real Madrid not keen on recruiting anyone from the market at this point, the Spanish ace is now unlikely to leave the club.

With David Alaba still sidelined, Antonio Rudiger and Eder Militao will start the new season as the first-choice centre-back pairing and Vallejo will serve as the backup while Aurelien Tchouameni will also be an option.

Vallejo, for his part, wanted to stay put and see out his contract which expires in 2025. And, as things stand, it appears that the player will get his wish.
