Real Madrid see Golden Boot winner as alternative for Kylian Mbappe

The Spanish side will have a busy next summer, looking to bring in more stars in order to bolster their squad.

Real Madrid are said to be eyeing up England and Spurs forward Harry Kane as an alternative to the French superstar.

If reports are to be believed, Real Madrid are ready to approach Paris Saint-Germain the next summer transfer window for Kylian Mbappe. The World Cup-winning youngster is the hottest property in the market right now and is set to be a part of an intense transfer saga, much like his teammate, next year.

Mbappe has managed to establish himself as one of the stars of world football in recent years, with the Frenchman helping PSG win numerous pieces of silverware, as well as aiding France in their 2018 World Cup win. The French international is surely going to win at least a few Ballon D’Ors during his career should he fulfill his potential, and it seems like Spanish giants Real have cottoned on to this.

As per Don Balon, Mbappe is Los Blancos’ main transfer target, with Real president Perez aware that the player is going to try and force through a €300 million move away from Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the season.

However, it’s also noted that chairman Nasser Al Khelaifi could force the forward to stay with the club, and as a result, Zidane’s side have turned their focus on Tottenham talisman Harry Kane, who will come in much cheaper, around €200 million, per the same report. Spurs haven’t had the best of starts to their Premier League season and if they fail to qualify for the Champions League next season, Kane might get convinced to leave London.

Kane is clearly one of the best strikers on the planet, and given that Karim Benzema is getting on a bit, the club are going to need to bring in a replacement for the forward in the coming years. During his career, Kane has managed to bag a total of 167 goals and 28 assists in 257 games for the Lilywhites, with the 26-year-old also amassing an impressive record for England as well.
