Real Madrid have identified Harry Kane as their preferred target to replace Karim Benzema. 

Real Madrid had planned to pursue Erling Haaland or Kylian Mbappe in 2024.

Roberto Firmino, who is available on a free transfer after his contract expired at Liverpool and Chelsea's Kai Havertz have both been linked to Madrid, but club sources admit that Kane is the only available forward who has consistently scored the requisite number of goals, year after year.

Madrid are aware that a fee of around €100 million would be required to land Kane.
