Going in Low
Real Madrid are “set to offer a shockingly low transfer bid” to Tottenham as the scramble to sign Harry Kane begins.
The striker overtook Wayne Rooney to become the second-highest Premier League goalscorer last month.
The England captain, who is also our country’s all-time top marksman, has now taken his tally to 279 goals in 435 games for the club and is Tottenham’s record scorer.
But it has been another year of disappointment for him at club level and he is still yet to win a trophy during his incredible career.
Manchester United have made the star one of their top summer transfer targets as Kane’s future remains in the spotlight.
However, it has now emerged that Spanish giants Real are leading the race for the star after losing Karim Benzema in a shock move to Saudi Arabia.
We reported how Real’s move for the talisman is now in doubt thanks to Daniel Levy’s demands.
The Tottenham chief is reportedly refusing to sell for less than £100m, despite Kane’s age and contract status.
Now Marca have shed further light on their planned approach – and how much they are set to start the bidding war at.
They claim that due to arrival of Brazilian Endrick next summer, and with hopes of a move for the younger Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe being lined-up for 2025, Los Blancos are reluctant to break the bank for a player who turns 30 next month.
Therefore, they claim that Madrid are willing to make a bid of around £68m to Spurs for Kane.
