Real have made a new striker their top priority next summer, with Inter Milan’s Mauro Icardi strongly linked.

But it’s believed Perez wants to make Kane his next Galactico, having previously done business with Spurs in 2013 for Gareth Bale.

Kane has 28 goals in 28 appearances this season and a strong performance at the World Cup in June could see offers flood in from around Europe.

And it’s added that Real are willing to sacrifice Karim Benzema in order to raise funds and free up room in their star-studded squad.

But it’s not just Kane they want, with Spurs boss Pochettino being lined up to replace Zinedine Zidane at the helm.

Despite winning two Champions League and La Liga during his brief time as Real boss, the Frenchman appears to have lost the trust of his players, the fans and the board.

Pochettino could jump at the chance to manage one of world football’s biggest clubs, and the lure of working with Kane – as well as vice versa – may help Real pull off a shock coup.
