With Rafael Benitez now just a memory at Real Madrid, newly-appointed manager Zinedine Zidane appears ready to commence a new era at the Bernabeu.

The midfield legend is plotting reinforcements this month and has identified Tottenham striker Harry Kane as the perfect signing, according to the Telegraph.

With the future of Cristiano Ronaldo in doubt amidst speculation of a move to Paris Saint-Germain or Manchester United, the 22-year-old Kane has been earmarked as a candidate to replace the Portuguese superstar.

The England international signed a five-and-half-year deal last February which will keep him at White Hart Lane until 2020, but that won’t deter Real from pursuing the forward.

He currently earns £45,000-per-week, which the La Liga giants could substantially increase in a bid to lure him to the Spanish capital.

Los Blancos have a rich history of transfer dealings with Spurs having previously captured the signings of Luka Modric and Gareth Bale, and believe future business with the north London outfit is possible.

Although Kane maintains the stance he is happy at Tottenham, his agent hasn’t ruled out a future move.

His brilliant form last season saw him earn a call-up to the England national side, scoring three goals in eight appearances since.

And despite struggling for form at the beginning of this campaign, Kane has found his goalscoring touch and scored 11 goals in 18 league outings, spearheading a Tottenham side with top four aspirations.

Louis van Gaal's United are also rumoured to be interested in Kane, though the case remains Spurs would rather sell their talisman abroad than to a Premier League rival.
