Report: Real Madrid hoping Levy relationship can help secure Tottenham star Harry Kane

Real Madrid are reportedly hoping to sign Tottenham striker Harry Kane.

According to The Telegraph, Real Madrid are hoping to sign Tottenham striker Harry Kane in the near future, though a deal this month isn't on the cards.

Kane, 22, hit 31 goals in all competitions for Spurs last season, and whilst he endured a slow start to this campaign, he has now racked up six goals in his last games, continuing to thrive under Mauricio Pochettino.

Expected to make a huge impact for England at this summer's European Championships in France, Kane is one of the brightest up-and-coming forwards in world football, and it's no surprise to see interest building in his signature.

The Telegraph report that Real Madrid are planning for the next generation of Galacticos, meaning life after Cristiano Ronaldo is being considered - and they want Kane.

The report suggests that Real Madrid have a strong relationship with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy, having signed the likes of Luka Modric and Gareth Bale from Spurs in recent years, and are hoping to capitalise on that again with a move for Kane.

Tottenham won't be selling Kane in January, but Real are believed to be looking at a summer move for the striker, where Florentino Perez's millions could be on offer again.

Real have often signed English players over the years, including Steve McManaman, David Beckham, Michael Owen and Jonathan Woodgate, and Real will be hoping to tempt Kane into following suit.

Yet, with such an affinity with Tottenham, and an exciting project in the works at White Hart Lane, it may take a huge offer to make Kane even consider a move to the Santiago Bernabeu, whilst chairman Levy may demand a similar fee to when he sold Bale to Real Madrid over two years ago.
