Madrid-based Marca reveal that the results of a recent poll show that Kane is the man most fans would like to see at the Bernabeu.

The Tottenham striker topped a list of seven stellar names with 34 per cent of the vote, with Neymar in second place.

However, the Brazilian was some way off, picking up 23 per cent of the vote.

The Tottenham striker finished the calendar year as the leading marksman in Europe with 56 goals in 52 games.

Neymar, a year Kane’s senior, had been tipped by some to leave Paris Saint-Germain for the Bernabeu in the summer following reports he is struggling to settle in the French capital.

Meanwhile, Icardi looked likely to be the club’s priority as they explored the possibility of a foray into the transfer market in January.

Lewandowski and Hazard have been long-term targets for Los Blancos, but Real Madrid fans now seem less keen.
