Harry Kane was Ancelotti’s preferred choice for the role of striker after Karim Benzema signed for Al Ittihad. Although no contact was made with the player or the club, there was still a huge interest for Kane at Santiago Bernabeu. Perez rejected the move considering Harry Kane’s age and that the Los Blancos required young talent.

According to Fichajes, Manchester United offered Anthony Martial to Real Madrid, which could have seen the French striker move to the Bernabeu on a loan move. Real Madrid didn’t give any response though. Carlo Ancelotti has made it clear that his squad is complete and he wishes to go into the season.
