Real Madrid have initiated contact with Tottenham Hotspur regarding the potential transfer of Harry Kane to the Santiago Bernabeu.

According to Marca, Los Blancos have identified Kane as their primary target this summer to replace the departing Karim Benzema.

Negotiations have reportedly commenced between Real Madrid and Spurs chairman Daniel Levy, who is demanding a minimum of £100 million for the services of the English captain.

Kane's availability has attracted significant interest after he indicated his unwillingness to extend his current contract, which has only 12 months remaining.

While Manchester United were considered frontrunners for his signature, Real Madrid's interest could change the dynamics of the situation.

The allure of the Spanish giants, with their track record of success and consistent Champions League participation, is an enticing prospect.

The opportunity to play alongside talents like Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo is not lost on Kane, who acknowledges the need to leave Spurs to pursue silverware in the latter stages of his career.

Nevertheless, Manchester United still hopes to persuade Kane to stay in England. The striker is driven by the ambition to surpass Alan Shearer's all-time Premier League goal-scoring record.

With 213 goals to his name following a 30-goal season, Kane sits just 47 goals behind the Newcastle United legend.

Joining Old Trafford would potentially provide him with a better chance of achieving that milestone.
