Spanish newspapers react to plans for a £100m bid to sign Tottenham’s star striker ahead of Man United – and Karim Benzema’s number is being kept for him
Real Madrid will reportedly reserve their No 9 shirt for Harry Kane as they prepare a £100million offer for the prolific Tottenham Hotspur and England striker .With Karim Benzema departing the Bernabeu to play in Saudi Arabia, the Spanish press have wasted no time in pointing out that Kane is a ready-made replacement.
The intentions for a £100 million attempt to buy Tottenham’s top striker ahead of Man United are discussed in Spanish tabloids, and Karim Benzema’s number is being retained for him.
According to reports, Real Madrid will hold onto Harry Kane’s No. 9 jersey as they get ready to make the prolific Tottenham Hotspur and England striker a £100 million bid.As soon as Karim Benzema left the Bernabeu to play in Saudi Arabia, the Spanish media immediately noted that Kane is a suitable alternative.
The news that Real Madrid is interested in signing Kane, 29, is devastating for Manchester United, who are also looking to add a center forward who scored 30 Premier League goals for a struggling Spurs squad this season.
There is a lot of coverage inside, even though the front covers of the Madrid sports newspapers opted to highlight Benzema’s moving farewell during the 1-1 tie with Athletic Bilbao on Sunday night.
Kane is without a doubt Real’s top pick to take Benzema’s spot now that the No. 9 jersey is open, according to Marca. While Luka Modric wears the No. 10 for Real, Kane wears it for Tottenham.
After the England captain emerged as a target following Karim Benzema’s departure, Pedro Porro strangely claims that Tottenham players would be HAPPY to see Harry Kane join Real Madrid. Porro has revealed that he and his Tottenham team-mates would be happy to see Harry Kane complete a blockbuster £100 million move to Real Madrid this summer. The Spanish powerhouse has now made the England captain its top priority after club great Karim Benzema left the team for a £258 million salary in Saudi Arabia. Kane has one year left .remaining on his contract with Spurs, has been the subject of intense speculation following another remarkable season in front of goal.
And Porro, who only joined the club in January, believes the move – which could see Kane secure his first piece of silverware – would be celebrated by much of the playing staff at the club.
‘If Kane decides to go to Real Madrid we’ll be as happy as he is or more,’ the 23-year-old told reporters at the opening of a training camp named in his honour.
