If you take a look at Real Madrid’s squad, it’s hard to spot an area of weakness.

Okay, so they could upgrade at the goalkeeper position. Keylor Navas is prone to the odd mistake and it’s hardly surprising that Real have been linked with David de Gea in recent years.

But Zinedine Zidane is blessed with an array of talent in every other area, from Sergio Ramos in defence to Toni Kroos in midfield to Cristiano Ronaldo in attack.

And the future is incredibly bright too, with Marco Asensio and Dani Ceballos establishing themselves as two of the brightest talents in European football.

The aim is, of course, a repeat of last season, in which Real Madrid completed an impressive La Liga and Champions League double.

And that’s the aim every season - failure to win any trophies is classed a failure at Los Blancos.

Ronaldo: 'If you win nothing you feel empty'

Cristiano Ronaldo summed up the attitude required to play for the Spanish giants when he spoke to Rio Ferdinand recently.

"The most important thing is to win trophies,” Ronaldo said.

“We work 10, 11 months and if you win nothing you feel empty and I like to win trophies - as a collective and as an individual, because I work hard for that.

Real Madrid want two PL stars

And two Premier League players might have to buy into that ethos if Real’s interest in them develops.

According to Spanish outlet Marca, the reigning European champions are interested in signing Tottenham Hotspur duo Harry Kane and Dele Alli.

The English pair have flourished in recent years, with Kane joining the likes of Sergio Aguero and Luis Suarez as one of the best strikers in the world.

The 24-year-old has scored 14 goals in 10 matches this season for club and country, with 13 of those coming in the month of September alone.

And it is Alli, 21, who has been instrumental in creating chances for the striker since his arrival in north London in 2015.

Levy is a tough negotiator

Spurs must have expected this to happen and it will be interesting to see how they manage the situation.

Daniel Levy has proven himself to be a difficult negotiator in recent years, arranging a world-record £85 million deal with Madrid for Gareth Bale in 2013, and he can command incredible fees for both Kane and Alli.

Real Madrid will get a better look at the pair when they face Tottenham in the Champions League later this month.
