Mauricio Pochettino and Harry Kane are no longer targets for Real Madrid, according to Sports Illustrated.

Kane has been heavily linked with a move to the Bernabeu by the Spanish media after outscoring Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in the calendar year of 2017.

The 24-year-old has emerged as one of the best strikers in Europe over the last two seasons – he has scored 35 goals in all competitions so far this term.

But Sports illustrated claims he is no longer on Madrid’s wish list as the La Liga giants are now apparently prioritising the signing of Robert Lewandowski from Bayern Munich.

It is believed Madrid want to replace Karim Benzema this summer, and Lewandowski will be easier to get than Kane.

Zinedine Zidane’s future is also uncertain. There have been suggestions Mauricio Pochettino is high on the list of potential replacements for the Frenchman.

But again, Sports Illustrated believes Madrid have given up on trying to lure both Pochettino and Kane from Spurs this summer.

If true, the report will be music to the ears of Tottenham fans, most of whom would like to see Pochettino and Kane remain in north London for many years to come.
