Harry Kane has reportedly been offered to Real Madrid as Tottenham bid to derail a move to Manchester United.
The 29-year-old striker has a little over a year left on his contract and could jump ship this summer.
Man United are among the favourites to claim his signature in their hunt for a striker this summer.
But Mundo Deportivo report that Spurs have actively sought out Real Madrid to avoid selling the star to a domestic rival.
The Spanish outlet claim Real Madrid are seriously considering a proposal as they look for a no.9 to compete with Karim Benzema.
Los Blancos fell away in the La Liga title race and where thrashed by Manchester City in the Champions League during the course of a surprisingly underwhelming season.
Kane has been linked to the club before but has stayed put in North London since emerging from Spurs' youth academy in 2014.
Despite failing to win any major trophies with the club, Kane has established himself as one of best strikers in the world.
Spurs could also be set to benefit from any potential Kane move to the capital.
The report adds that Eden Hazard could be involved in negotiations to help cheapen the price.
The former Chelsea star once lit up the Premier League but has had a nightmare time of it since completing his dream move to Real Madrid in 2019.
Madrid are believed to be keen to get the injury-prone 32-year-old - who is the club's highest-earner - off their books.
Man United will likely fight tooth-and-nail to bring Kane to Old Trafford.
The club will go all out trying to find a striker this summer as they look to build on Erik ten Hag's solid debut season.
If Kane proves to be unattainable, the Red Devils also have their eye on Napoli hotshot Victor Osimhen and Juventus ace Dusan Vlahovic..
