Real Madrid will go after Premier League goal machine only if price drops to €80m

It is no secret that Real Madrid are on the lookout for a new striker to replace former captain Karim Benzema.

Even though club president Florentino Perez recently claimed that there will be no more signings after the arrival of Joselu, the Merengues remain in the market for a new centre-forward, with Kylian Mbappe firmly on their radars.

However, if there is no movement on that front, Real Madrid could turn their attention back to Tottenham Hotspur and England superstar Harry Kane.

The 29-year-old had been linked with a move to the Santiago Bernabeu quite heavily in recent times, but the links started to fade as the Merengues turned their focus towards the Mbappe saga.

Furthermore, Tottenham’s €115 million valuation of the player was seen as too steep for a player who will soon turn 30 and has only one year left on his contract.

But, according to journalist Tomas Gonzalez-Martin (h/t RM4Arab), Real Madrid will make a move for Kane this summer, if Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is willing to lower his valuation to €80 million.

However, that could prove to be too big a hurdle to cross, given the reputation that Levy has as a difficult negotiator. Real Madrid experienced that during negotiations to sign Luka Modric and Gareth Bale around a decade ago.

Kane has been a goal machine in the Premier League for a long while now, but has nothing to show for in terms of trophies. That, coupled with his contract situation, has given way to speculations that the England captain is ready to move on from Spurs in order to achieve his career ambitions.

Manchester United had also been linked with a move for the 29-year-old, but Levy has no desire to sell him to a Premier League rival, despite Kane wanting to stay in England to chase down Alan Shearer’s all-time goalscoring record.

As far as Real Madrid are concerned, their interest in Kane has not died down completely. But, a move will only be considered if Spurs would lower their asking price for their ace goalscorer to €80 million.

Aurelien Tchouameni has had an exciting start to his career at Real Madrid. Since joining the club for almost €80 million last summer, the young Frenchman has now become a pivotal figure in Real Madrid’s midfield unit.

However, prior to his move to Santiago Bernabeu, the midfielder was closely linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

In a recent interview, Tchouameni opened up on his links to PSG but revealed his decision to join Real Madrid.

Talking about speculations linking him to PSG, Tchouameni said (h/t Madrid Zone), “PSG? Frankly, I thought about it. It’s a very big European club, we want the French clubs to succeed.”

“But honestly, when Real Madrid calls you, it’s very complicated to say no,” Tchouameni added.

The midfielder was linked with a move to PSG during his time at AS Monaco. Les Parisiens wanted to sign the youngster as part of their plans to reinforce the midfield unit.

Tchouameni, though, ended up opting for a move to Real Madrid, which turned out to be a prudent decision from the midfielder’s end.

Tchouameni’s career at Real Madrid

Aurelien Tchouameni made a total of 50 competitive appearances during his maiden season at Real Madrid.

Although the Frenchman was not entirely a first-team regular in Carlo Ancelotti’s setup, his stature in the team is expected to grow in the coming years.

Especially as Toni Kroos and Luka Modric move on at the end of the season, there is scope for Tchouameni to become a first-team regular in the Real Madrid midfield in the years to come.

The former AS Monaco starlet has already played a crucial role in the starting eleven so far this season and it is only going to continue as the season progresses.
