Real Madrid planning to sign Arsenal & Tottenham stars to replace influential duo, could free up Manchester United transfer target

Posted by

Real Madrid are reportedly planning to seal the transfers of Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez and Tottenham striker Harry Kane in a major shake-up next summer.

Don Balon claim Florentino Perez is keen for Real to begin talks over snapping Sanchez up on a free from January, when he will be free to negotiate with foreign clubs over a move at the end of the season.

The report states that this would likely see Arsenal act on their interest in Karim Benzema as a replacement for their attack, while Real would seek to fill the void left by the Frenchman with Spurs hit-man Kane.

This could also be good news for Manchester United, whom the Sun have recently linked with a move for Gareth Bale, whose position would likely be taken by Sanchez.

Real Madrid have looked unconvincing in attack for much of this season, and are already ten points off the pace in the title race in Spain.

Cristiano Ronaldo has not been his usual self in front of goal, scoring just once in La Liga, the same tally as front-man Benzema.

Sanchez and Kane, meanwhile, have been among the best players in the Premier League for the last few seasons and could clearly lead a new Galactico era at the Bernabeu.

While the Gunners forward would be available on a free transfer as he nears the end of his contract, Kane might prove a trickier signing as the Sun claim Manchester United are also interested in him, and that the deal would likely cost as much as £170million.
