Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has softened rumours linking his club with a €250m move for Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane.
The England international has been in superb form both for club and country and has such been linked heavily with a move to the Santiago Bernabeu in recent weeks.
Madrid, who are keen to make a ‘Galactico’ signing next summer, have been looking at various options and it is reported in Spanish and English press that Kane is their number one target.
President Perez has previously insisted that the club have no interest in signing Kane, and he has spoken once more in an interview with Cadena COPE, via Sky Sports.
“Signing Harry Kane has not passed through my head. He is a great player and in addition he is young.
“He has many years to progress, but we are delighted with [Karim] Benzema and with all of the team.
“I didn’t ask Tottenham’s president for the price because he would have told me that he is worth €250m.”
Meanwhile, unreliable source Don Balon have attempted to come up with their own story, claiming Perez is having trouble with the Madrid lock room, who believe Perez will make a move and replace Karim Benzema, who remains one of the most popular players at the club.
This is also echoed by Marca journalists Delfín Melero and Jon Prada, who go into full detail on who is better out of the French striker and Kane.
Spurs play Real Madrid at Wembley next week in the Champions League, following on from their first group game meeting last week which ended 1-1.
