Harry Kane was “lukewarm” on joining Real Madrid this summer after the La Liga giants made an approach for the Tottenham striker, according to reports in Spain.

Spanish outlet El Pais claims Madrid approached Spurs and Liverpool over Kane and Mohamed Salah respectively earlier in the summer.

The report suggests Tottenham turned down Madrid’s enquiry, but Kane was uncertain about a move to the Bernabeu anyway.

Kane signed a new six-year deal with Spurs back in June, ending any speculation about an exit before it even begun.

But El Pais believes Madrid made a move for the 25-year-old as a potential replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo, who left for Juventus after the World Cup.

Kane scored his first ever Premier League goal in the month of August against Fulham at Wembley on Saturday, adding to strikes from Lucas Moura and Kieran Trippier in the 3-1 win.

Next up for Tottenham is a trip to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United, a fixture Mauricio Pochettino’s side have lost in each of the last four seasons.
