REAL MADRID LAUNCH £100M HARRY KANE BID, MANCHESTER UNITED ‘UNLIKELY’ TO COMPLETE TRANSFER FOR SPURS STAR – PAPER ROUND

Following the announcement that Karim Benzema will be leaving the Spanish city, Real Madrid is preparing a surprise move for Harry Kane. It is presently “unlikely” that Kane will transfer to Old Trafford, according to Manchester United, who are also considering signing the Tottenham Hotspur star. In other news, Manchester City wants to keep Erling Haaland and Chelsea is interested in Sporting Lisbon’s Manuel Ugarte.

KANE COULD be the genuine article.

After it was revealed that Karim Benzema will leave the Spanish club this summer, Real Madrid entered the hunt to sign Harry Kane of Tottenham Hotspur. The 29-year-old is at the top of Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti’s list of ideal strikers, while Kai Havertz of Chelsea has also been added to his list of desired transfers. Real Madrid will negotiate with Spurs but are “unlikely” to pay £100 million for Kane.

“Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti wants them to pursue Kane, but they are also considering a deal for Kai Havertz of Chelsea as Benzema’s replacement.

Daniel Levy, the chairman of Tottenham, does not want to sell and will seek more than £100 million to deter possible buyers. This summer, it appears that Levy’s persistent refusal to sell to a Premier League opponent will impede Manchester United’s desire. It will now be interesting to see if Real Madrid can catch Kane’s attention and persuade him to leave his beloved Tottenham this summer. They know Levy is a tough negotiator and are very unlikely to agree to pay £100 million for a player who turns 30 next month and has one year left on his contract.

Harry Kane is Manchester United’s top transfer target, and they believe it is “unlikely” that they will be able to sign him this summer. The England captain is greatly admired by United manager Erik ten Hag, who has made signing Kane a top priority for the team this summer. The chairman of Tottenham, Daniel Levy, does not want to transfer his greatest asset to a Premier League competitor, which has United feeling pessimistic.

According to The Telegraph, Manchester United will launch a £50 million offer to capture Mason Mount this month. The club will also pressure Harry Kane’s Tottenham Hotspur to be sold, although they now think it is unlikely.

Given the size of the transaction and how challenging it has been in the past to convince Tottenham Hotspur to sell, the issue around Kane is more problematic.

There are more practical options than Kane that United are considering for the center forward position, but if a trade can be made, he will still be their top priority.

CHELSEA USING INNOVATION IN TRANSFERS
Manuel Ugarte of Sporting Lisbon is expected to be signed by Chelsea before Paris Saint-Germain. In order to complete the transfer, Chelsea has offered to “buy a minority stake” in Sporting Lisbon. The 22-year-old had already informed PSG that he desired to move to the French capital. The west London club is using all of its financial clout and inventiveness to bring in a great midfielder.
According to The Mirror, “PSG had activated the sought-after Uruguayan midfielder’s €60 million (£52 million) release clause, who had notified the French champions of his preference to move to the Parc des Princes.

But according to Mirror Football, Chelsea’s offer to sign Ugarte is not a pure financial deal. In addition to the Blues package being split out into installments, which enables them to get under UEFA’s Financial Fair Play (FFP) restrictions, it also included a suggestion to purchase a small minority part in the club with headquarters in Lisbon.

Ugarte was reportedly told by Sporting that Chelsea would be his only buyer this summer. According to reports, the Blues have extended a contract to Ugarte for eight years.

HAALAND’S CONTRACT MAY BE PROLONGED BY MAN CITY

Less than a year after acquiring Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund, Manchester City is considering extending his contract. The Premier League winners are hoping that a contract extension will ward off any interest in Haaland from clubs like Real Madrid, who have had a long-standing interest in the Norwegian. The 22-year-old has had an impressive debut season with the club.

The 22-year-old Norwegian striker is in the running for new terms, which will make it more difficult for Real Madrid to launch Operation Haaland and sign the player who has scored 52 goals this year, according to The Telegraph.

Given Haaland’s satisfaction with the club, there is belief at City that an extension has a good chance of being negotiated.
Any new contract would give City the chance to make it increasingly harder for Champions League opponents to try to entice away the continent’s most productive striker this season.
