Real Madrid is allegedly keen on marking Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane the following summer.
Karim Benzema, the savior of Los Blancos, won the 2022 Ballon d’Or for his prolific play during the previous season. In 46 games, he scored 44 goals and contributed 15 assists, which enabled them to win the UEFA Champions League and La Liga.
However, the 34-year-old has missed just 12 games across all competitions this season due to multiple injuries. Benzema was also forced out of France’s World Cup squad for 2022 because of an injury.
Fichajes reports that Real Madrid is looking to sign a new striker this summer and has a long list of potential candidates.Timo Werner, Youssoufa Moukoko, and Rafael Leao are among them.
However, Kane is a prominent name on their list. In 2024, the England captain’s contract with Tottenham ends. In 468 games played for the team, he has assisted on 62 goals and scored 261 goals.
Despite his prolific goal-scoring, the 29-year-old striker has yet to win a trophy. As a result, he might look into making a move in that direction next summer.
In addition, Kane has had a strong start to the current season, scoring 13 goals and assisting three others in 22 games.
According to the Fichajes report, Genuine Madrid is keen on acquiring Erling Haaland from Manchester City in 2024. However, given Benzema’s injuries, they may move for Kane if they want to sign someone next summer. The Tottenham player has long been a target for Los Blancos.
Karim Benzema, a striker for Real Madrid, may reappear in France’s FIFA World Cup squad. In a surprising development, Benzema may reappear in the French squad for the ongoing matchup in Qatar.
According to RMC Sport (via GOAL), Didier Deschamps can recall the Real Madrid player to his team if he can recover and return to training in time. Despite having to withdraw at the last minute, Benzema is still officially registered for the tournament.
The French striker was anticipated to resume Real Madrid training, but this renewed optimism may result in his appearance for Les Bleus at his final World Cup.
With victories in their first two matches, France has already earned a spot in the tournament’s Round of 16. In Benzema’s absence, Olivier Giroud has performed admirably, scoring twice in their November 22, 4-1 victory over Australia.
Deschamps is unlikely to recall Benzema as a result, particularly if he is not 100% fit.
