Real Madrid willing to offer three superstars for £179 million forward — Reports

Real Madrid willing to offer three superstars for £179 million forward — Reports

It is also the reason Zidane remains steadfast in his rotation policy, not just to rest key players in games against La Liga's lesser lights but also to ensure that he has match-ready replacements on hand when injuries affect his squad, as is almost inevitable when most are playing between 50 and 60 games a season.

Paper Round's view: Wilshere's contract is up at the end of the season and if he can manage not to break his leg for a couple of months, a move away from Arsenal would seem wise.

According to the same story, Manchester United are in the market to sign a wide player with the suggestion that Bale could be an ideal candidate to fill the role in Jose Mourinho's team.

That is unless Perez is so enamoured with Kane, 24, who has netted 11 goals in his last six matches.

Benzema would be sacrificed to make way for Kane, while Bale has suffered repeatedly from injuries and faced criticism for his performances this season. Wales were eliminated in a winner-take-all game with Ireland, which will come as a huge relief at the Bernabeu given Gareth Bale's injury history and the likelihood the forward would have forced the issue if he were needed.

Going from Euro 2016 semi-finalists to missing out on the World Cup: "In the Euros, people didn't know too much about Wales".

"I believe the BBC - Ronaldo, Benzema and Bale - has a lot of problems now", he said. "Either you're injured or you're not; I don't think it's a mental question".

Indeed, Manchester United boss Mourinho admitted that the player himself wasn't open to a move to Old Trafford at this point in his career despite relentless talk of a return to the Premier League.

Spurs are expected to demand €200m for Kane, but Florentino Perez is believed to be unwilling to pay such a hefty fee. Gareth was a left-back and he'd always played on the left. "And maybe that has something to do with it".

Kane's team-mate, Dele Alli, is also reportedly wanted in La Liga with both Real and Barcelona chasing him.
