Real Madrid to replace Cristiano Ronaldo with Harry Kane

Real Madrid are looking at Harry Kane as a long-term replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo, according to a report in The Telegraph.

The Tottenham Hotspur striker, 22, has been on the La Liga side’s radar for more than a year and although there is “no prospect” of a sale this month, the newspaper claims that they have earmarked him as a top target should Ronaldo depart the Bernabeu in the near future.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has a good relationship with Madrid, having sold Gareth Bale to them for a world-record transfer fee in 2013, and would reportedly prefer to see Kane leave for a non-domestic rival.

Kane signed a new deal with Spurs last year keeping him at White Hart Lane until 2020 on a weekly salary of £45,000, although Levy’s policy of annual salary negotiations means that he is due a payrise past the £70,000-mark in the coming months.

According to a recent report from football analysis firm CIES Football ­­Observatory, Kane is ranked as the fifth most valuable footballer in the world with an estimated worth of £68m.
