Real Madrid will turn to Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford if they cannot sign Harry Kane, according to reports.
Spanish publication Don Balon are claiming Florentino Perez wants the youngster as back up if a deal with Tottenham cannot be reached.
Spurs have always insisted they do not need to sell any of their star players, including hitman Kane.
And the report suggests that Real are ready to go after Rashford as a Plan B in the summer.
Perez is said to be a massive fan of Rashford while talisman Cristiano Ronaldo would also welcome a deal for Rashford.

Ronaldo is reportedly convinced the England international will become a world class star in the future.
And it would mean that Real would not have to force Karim Benzema out of the team to make way for Harry Kane.
Spanish news outlet Diaro Gol last week claimed Los Blancos are cooking up a mouth-watering bid in the hope of changing Tottenham supremo Daniel Levy’s mind about Kane.
Gareth Bale and Benzema would be included in an initial offer, according to the report.
But should Spurs hold out for the £179million transfer fee which the Spanish paper claims the club value him at, they would throw in former Tottenham fan favourite Luka Modric as well.
