Tottenham star Harry Kane is a Real Madrid transfer target and Los Blancos are willing to offer several players to reduce his €200m (£179.2m) price tag.
Ex-Spurs players Gareth Bale and Luka Modric have been mentioned as potential makeweights, as has striker Karim Benzema. The Spanish club hope those players would bring Kane’s price down to €40m (£35.9m), but Bale’s injury record and Modric’s age would reduce their respective values. (Diario Gol)
This news comes alongside further revelations that the Spanish champions are willing to offload Bale next summer. Real will look to recoup the €100m (£89.6m) they paid Tottenham for Bale, and Manchester United could be alerted by his availability. Jose Mourinho has previously stated he would bid for the Welshman if he was ever available. (El Confidencial)
Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud is an Inter and Juventus transfer target. The French striker is now back-up to Alexandre Lacazette in London and was free to move in the recent transfer window.
However, he decided to stay and fight for his place in the side but hasn’t been a regular in the starting XI and may now be willing to move on. The forward would bolster the attacking ranks at both Italian clubs, and would be considered a Mario Mandzukic replacement if he were to join Juventus. (Calciomercato)
