Real Madrid have been having a tough season so far in La Liga, lagging a whopping 19 points behind their bitter rivals Barcelona in the league table.
Los Blancos President Florentino Perez is therefore determined to spend big this summer to rectify his famous club’s struggles.
It has been consistently reportedly that the reigning European Champions would make a world record bid for Spurs star Harry Kane, although highly respected Sky Sports journalist Guillem Balague has now revealed that the club’s interest in the England international, is nothing more than a move to distract people from who their main transfer target is this summer, when he said:
“Are they going for Harry Kane this summer? There will be suggestions, there will be rumours but I do believe that they think Kane will not leave Tottenham this summer.
At the moment they are not convinced he will move in the summer, with the emotional link to Spurs and to Mauricio Pochettino, but also while Cristiano is there Kane has not got much to do. In any case Real Madrid may use Kane to distract from the focus of their real attention which is Cheslea forward Eden Hazard.”
Despite Chelsea struggling this season, Hazard has been in devastating form and is without a doubt one of the most talented attackers in European football.
The Belgium international has been stalling on signing a new deal at Stamford Bridge, and he recently refused to rule out a move to the Bernabeu.
