Real Madrid are reportedly chasing a Manchester United star, while City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne is set to double his wages, according to Wednesday’s papers.
REAL MADRID IDENTIFY KANE PLAN B
Real Madrid are set to make a move for Manchester United star Marcus Rashford should they fail in their pursuit of Harry Kane.
A report in the Daily Mail, via Don Balon, president Florentino Perez is looking to add another big name to Real’s squad after missing out on Kylian Mbappe in the summer.
While Kane would be the most suitable candidate to slot into the LaLiga side’s forward line, Real are also reportedly keen on bring in Rashford and easing him in to first team action.
The report claims that the young United star is “unlikely” to try and force a move away from Old Trafford, due to being a boyhood fan of the club and having a contract with the Red Devils until 2020.
United are also likely to reject any approaches for the 19-year-old, even if Los Blancos threw in reported target Gareth Bale as bait.
