Tottenham Hotspur can breathe a sigh of a relief, as Real Madrid are considering a move for PSG’s Edinson Cavani as a ‘plan b’ to Harry Kane, according to a report in Spain.
Don Balon report that the Spanish giants are considering a move for the Uruguayan international as a cheaper alternative to Kane, whose dire importance to Spurs could bring about a hefty price tag.
To further add relief to Spurs fans, it is reported that Cavani also favours a move to the Bernabéu, should Real Madrid opt to move for him.
Madrid are despertately looking for a replacement to the withering Karim Benzema, who has only managed to score six goals from his 25 team appearances this term.
It has widely been reported that the English international is their top target, but it appears Spurs could hold onto Kane should his stock continue to rise.
Football Insider verdict:
Edinson Cavani would be a suitable replacement of Karim Benzema, the PSG star’s natural ability has been shown for years during his time in Paris, becoming their top goal scorer after surpassing Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Tottenham being able to hold onto Kane exponentially increases their chances of silverware, as the Spurs’ number 10 is constantly a goal threat in every game he plays. Mauricio Pochettino will be boosted by Madrid’s reported interest in Cavani, as it is hard to resist the temptation to join Madrid once the phone rings. Real Madrid may be forced to make a move for the PSG star, should Kane’s price tag rise too high.
