Former Real Madrid president Roman Calderon has admitted that the La Liga giants would prefer Tottenham striker Harry Kane over Bayern Munich forward Robert Lewandowski.
The ex-supremo has never been one to shy away from the spotlight despite his previous involvement with the club and was quoted in the Mirror as saying: “I think Real’s goal is more Kane, also because of his age.
“But if it does not work out with him, I think Real is trying to get Lewandowski.”
Spurs leading marksman has been hotly linked with a move to Spain and with the European champions looking for an out and out striker, the forward would seemingly fit the bill.
Tottenham will be desperate to keep hold of their prized possession but with every goal that he registers, his worth grows, and many now consider him the best striker in the world.
And Calderon pointed to Kane’s age as to the main reason that Los Blancos would prefer the English international over his Polish counterpart.
Despite the similar goal record; the Spurs forward has 39 in 40 games and the Munich striker has 34 in 38 matches, Lewandowski, 29, has five years on Kane who is 24.
There have also been suggestions that Mauricio Pochettino could replace Zinedine Zidane as Real Madrid manager after falling 14 points behind Barcelona in the race for the Spanish league title.
