Ever since Cristiano Ronaldo left Real Madrid to join Juventus, Los Blancos seem to have started to fall apart, which principally relates to their performances in the final third.
Without the Portuguese superstar, the reigning European champions look faceless in the final third, indifferent, and inefficient. Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema are both under performing this campaign, while Marco Asensio failed to replicate the last season displays so far.
One of the most dominant generations in modern football has lost their general and is now wandering around aimlessly. After Florentino Perez failed to find the appropriate replacement for his former talisman, Los Merengues have flopped under Julen Lopetegui who succeeded Zinedine Zidane on the bench.
Disappointing results and even worse displays have cost the former Porto boss his job, with Santiago Scolari being appointed the interim manager.
The Los Blancos president has already realized he made a massive mistake by remaining passive during the summer transfer session and now has every intention to make things right.
According to the various sources from England and Spain, Perez has set his sights on the Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane.
The Spurs’ headline performer over the past few years has maintained an impressive form even this season, as he already notched ten goals and added one assist in 16 top-flight outings for the London outfit.
The 25-year-old striker claimed the back-to-back Premier League Golden Boot awards before Mohamed Salah’s remarkable inaugural season with Liverpool.
Recognized for his ‘killer instinct,’ lethal finishing, and aesthetic sense of space, Kane has emerged as one of the most prolific strikers on the planet.
The England international is not only a goal-scoring machine, but he is also a natural leader, something Real lack since parting company with Ronaldo.
Florentino Perez is well aware he needs a player who can guarantee at least 25 goals per season. Meanwhile, Kane’s outstanding goalscoring record in the Premier League can only improve in La Liga, considering the way teams play in the Spanish top flight.
Therefore, a scenario involving Harry Kane switches London to Madrid seems like a plausible solution regardless of the high price tag Tottenham have slapped on their best footballer.
