Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is eyeing a sensational swoop for Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard and Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane, according to Don Balon.
Both players have been linked to Real Madrid this season due to their positive form.
Kane has been thriving season-by-season and as it stands he is just one goal short of leading Premier League scorer Mohamed Salah, who has hit 13 for Liverpool so far.
The Tottenham hitman was named in the top 10 of the Ballon d’Or vote, while Hazard has regained form for Chelsea, scoring five goals and creating two assists in his last eight outings.
Don Balon reports that Manchester City are now looking at the pair, with Guardiola keen to weaken Chelsea and Tottenham by taking their star attractions.
In this day and age, players have much more control when it comes to transfers.
More often than not, they get their wish when they want to move on to another club.
In this instance, Hazard and Kane are key members of their respective outfits and under no circumstances should Chelsea or Tottenham make it easy for City.
The North-West outfit have plenty of money to spend on transfers, but if the price tags on Hazard and Kane are raised significantly, then it may warn them off.
If a club sells one of their best players to a direct rival, not only does it weaken their team, it lessens their reputation in the market.
