Real Madrid drop out of race for Manchester United target and Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane
The England international is being linked with a move away from the North London side ahead of the upcoming transfer windows. Los Blancos were considered one of his suitors.
However, the Santiago Bernabeu side have removed the striker from their shortlist. Daniel Levy wants no less than £100 million, a price tag the La Liga outfit are not willing to match.
As a result, the Red Devils have been handed a boost in the race for the 29-year-old. He is willing to make a switch to the Old Trafford side from Spurs this summer.
Kane has been Tottenham’s talisman for several years now. In the 2022/23 season, he was the North London side’s only reliable attacker. But the English skipper has gone another campaign without a trophy.
Madrid unexpectedly lost Karim Benzema, who signed for Saudi Arabian outfit Al-Ittihad. Los Blancos are now left with just two established forwards in their ranks—Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo.
As for United, we have struggled to have a consistent number nine since Erik ten Hag’s arrival. Anthony Martial has been on the sidelines a lot in the last few months. Burnley loanee Wout Weghorst has not done much either.
Marcus Rashford has been deployed by the gaffer as a striker on several occasions for the Red Devils. The 25-year-old had a purple patch in the middle of the 2022/23 campaign, but he faded a bit in the final few weeks.

Ten Hag has been reliant on the academy graduate to find the back of the net consistently at the Old Trafford side. Therefore, we evidently need someone like Kane in our ranks. But whether the Manchester-based club will match Tottenham’s asking price remains to be seen.
It could be worth the chase. The Tottenham Hotspur and England record goal-scorer scores goals for fun. He could be the difference between finishing 2nd and first for us.
