Real Madrid consider move to sign £40m Man United target

Real Madrid are considering a shock move to sign Manchester United target Harry Kane as a potential replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo, Express reports.

The 22-year-old was heavily linked with a switch to Old Trafford ever since the summer, but Tottenham owner Daniel Levy stood firm on his decision to keep him at White Hart Lane.

Kane has emerged as a potential target for Real following the appointment of club legend Zinedine Zidane as their new manager.

It is now believed that a number of players in the current squad could be replaced in the summer as Zidane builds his preferred squad heading into the future.

Ronaldo has been linked with a departure in recent months, a factor that could urge the La Liga giants to push a deal for the England striker who is being valued at around the £40million region.

Kane has already featured in 20 Premier League matches this term, so far scoring 11 goals while providing another one assist.
