Real Madrid have formally asked Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy for a valuation on Harry Kane, a Spanish radio station has reported.
The England striker has been heavily linked with Zinedene Zidane’s European champions, and it’s no surprise given the 24-year-old is 11 for 11 this season, and could have made it 12 on Tuesday night.
A late chance denied by goalkeeper Keylor Navas and Raphael Varane’s own goal prevented a dream Real audition for Kane as Spurs left Madrid with a point and top of group H in the Champions League.

The Spurs striker played in their 1-1 draw with Real at the Bernabeu on Tuesday night
But according to Spanish radio show El Transistor, a programme for Onda Cero, transfer whispers surrounding the Spurs striker could be more than just whispers.
The Spanish radio station reported that Real, in a meeting before the Bernabeu clash, formally asked for Kane’s price tag.
‘The answer was that he was worth 200 million euros (£178million), in line with what the Times had published’, said journalist Fernando Burgos.
Its a fee that would come agonisingly close to Neymar’s world-record move to Paris-Saint Germain.
And Onda Cero radio station reported that Real spoke with Daniel Levy before the game
The story appeared on the front page of Saturday’s edition for Spanish newspaper AS

But it has also been reported that Gareth Bale could be included in the deal to return to North London, as well as Borja Mayoral ‘who Real Madrid value at 30 million euros’.
While a move is still very early in development, the rumours carry substance, backed up by Spanish newspaper AS, who published the story on their front page of Saturday’s edition.
It’s certainly a move that manager Zidane is interested in, after it was reported by Sportsmail that the former Madrid captain described the Englishman as a ‘complete player’.
But it has been claimed that Gareth Bale may be offered to return to Spurs as part of a deal
‘He does not stay (still), he takes the space with speed and he’s very good,’ Zidane said. ‘He’ s a complete player. He didn’t seem to be but in the end he is.
‘I don’t know what will happen in the future,’ said Real boss Zidane. ‘In the present, I know what he’s doing, he’s very important player, a key player for Tottenham, very good at everything but he always does it all towards the goal.
Bale has become an outcast at in the Spanish capital after injury woes continue to restrict his Madrid career after suffering his eighth calf injury since joining Madrid in 2013.
The Welshman has featured in just 36 games since the start of last season, and has been subject to jeers from the Madrid supporters, with Marco Asensio a new fan-favourite in his place.
And may also offer youngster Borja Mayoral as well who is valued at £27million
