Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has urged the board to go all in for Tottenham forward Harry Kane in the summer.

The Los Blancos are currently in need of a striker after Karim Benzema gave a hint about his future at the club.

The Frenchman is set to leave Bernabeu at the end of the season after spending 14 years playing for Real Madrid.

Ancelotti reportedly asked for a top striker and has informed the board to make a move on Harry Kane as a replacement for Benzema.

Ancelotti wants Kane

The English forward has been linked with a move away from Tottenham in recent months with the likes of Manchester United and Manchester City monitoring his situation.

Real Madrid are also looking to bring him to the Bernabeu with Karim Benzema possibly leaving the club in the summer.

According to Daily Mail, Ancelotti has been an admirer of Harry Kane’s skill and talent and has now begged the board to get him.

Kane, whose contract at Tottenham is about to expire, is also Erik Ten Hag and Manchester United's top target.

Kane's name allegedly came up at a high management meeting on Thursday, according to The Athletic, as Real Madrid's search for a new No. 9 was "accelerating."

Benzema denies leaving Madrid

During an event organised by Spanish outlet Marca, Benzema denied claims that he would leave Real Madrid at the end of the season after spending 14 years with the club.

The Frenchman has had a successful career with Madrid becoming the second top scorer of all-time with 353 goals in 647 games.

Though the 35-year-old's contract with Madrid expires in the summer of 2024, there is still some inside discussion about the possibility that he would leave and join the Saudi Pro League this summer.

The striker has stated that he will remain and that any claims to the contrary are purely online rumours.
