Real Madrid have identified Harry Kane as a backup option if a move for Alexis Sanchez fails, according to reports in Spain.
Manchester City came close to signing Sanchez on deadline day but the Chilean stayed with Arsenal, meaning he’ll be free to leave the Gunners for nothing at the end of the season.
Spanish outlet Don Balon (via talkSPORT) believes Madrid are confident of signing Sanchez, but the La Liga giants have identified Kane as a potential alternative.
Kane officially introduced himself to Europe with his two-goal display against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League last week.
The world’s best clubs would be foolish not to be at least keeping an eye on Tottenham’s talisman. It’s all merely speculation right now, and Spurs will be very determined to keep hold of Kane for the foreseeable future.
