Real Madrid would rather sign Robert Lewandowski than Harry Kane this summer, according to reports in Spain.
Kane has scored 35 goals in all competitions for Tottenham this season and has been repeatedly linked with a summer move to Madrid by the Spanish media.
Meanwhile, Bayern Munich striker Lewandowski has found the net 32 times in 37 appearances this term.
Madrid are reportedly keen to refresh their forward line following a disappointing La Liga campaign – Karim Benzema has scored only four goals in 23 league appearances this season.
At the age of 24, Kane is the obvious candidate as his best years should still be ahead of him. Lewandowski, on the other hand, turns 30 in August.
But according to Spanish outlet AS, Madrid would prefer to sign Lewandowski because of Kane’s “introverted nature” (via journalist Tom Allnutt).

Kane is also likely to cost a lot more than Lewandowski. The most recent statistical analysis suggests Kane is worth upwards of £200 million.
Given his age, Lewandowski will probably be the cheaper target by a considerable margin. Spurs fans will be hoping AS are on the money with this one.
