Carlo Ancelotti blocks Harry Kane from joining Real Madrid

Real Madrid manager, Carlo Ancelotti has blocked the club from signing Tottenham Hotspur striker, Harry Kane.

Catalan daily El Nacional reports that Real Madrid president Florentino Perez wanted Kane to fill Karim Benzema’s shoes.

Benzema left Santiago Bernabeu as a free agent this summer but the Italian tactician vetoed a move for the English striker.

The 29-year-old England national team captain has since been linked with a move to Bayern Munich.

Tottenham have already rejected two bids from the Germans, including a first bid worth €70 million and an improved offer of €80 million plus add-ons.

Real Madrid have, however, signed Spanish striker Joselu on a season-long loan from Espanyo.
