Madrid’s Mbappe wait leaves Ancelotti longing for Kane next season – perplexity and burstiness ensues!
Real Madrid faces a dilemma as they ponder whether or not to pursue Harry Kane as urged by Carlo Ancelotti to reinforce their forward line, or to wait for Kylian Mbappe, whose contract expires on June 30, 2024. ‘Relevo’ reports that while Ancelotti has requested the board to sign the British player, doubts about the financial feasibility of the ‘Kane operation’ have emerged as Tottenham demands €100 million for the transfer and an additional €20 million gross in wages for the player.
Florentino Perez believes that the amount needed for Kane’s transfer and wages could be saved and used to offer Mbappe a signing bonus instead, considering that the PSG striker is sending signals that give hope to the president of a possible landing next summer. ‘COPE’ also supports this theory and adds that Perez aims to form an attacking trio composed of Vinicius, Rodrygo, and the Frenchman.
In the meantime, the option of positioning Vinicius as a center forward for this season is a possibility, although the player expressed his dislike of the ‘9’ position after the game against Athletic. For now, Ancelotti is uneasy as the possibility of Kane not arriving becomes increasingly real. The club is considering ruling out the British player and waiting for Mbappe once again.
