Florentino Perez and Carlo Ancelotti: Following Karim Benzema’s departure from Real Madrid, the focus has switched to who will take his place as Carlo Ancelotti’s starting striker.
Several players, notably Roberto Firmino and Joselu, have been linked with a move to Real Madrid. Harry Kane, on the other hand, appears to be a preferred signing, with the English international expected to leave Tottenham Hotspur this summer.
According to Relevo, Ancelotti wants Real Madrid to sign Kane this summer, but Florentino Perez is skeptical of spending more than €100 million on the 29-year-old.
Perez’s argument is that he wants to sign Kylian Mbappe next summer, and the Paris Saint-Germain attacker is expected to be available on a free transfer.
Perez believes that paying so much money on Kane would be foolish, given the circumstances surrounding the prospective arrival of Mbappe, who would most certainly play as a striker at Real Madrid, with Vinicius Junior firmly established on the left wing.
If Perez is unwilling to spend significant money on a striker this summer, it raises the question of where Real Madrid will go. They may not have a top-level number nine next season, which could limit their chances of winning everything.
