Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has insisted his club have no interest in signing Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane for what he believes would be a world-record fee of £220million.
Kane has been linked with a move to Madrid following two successful seasons with Spurs finishing the Premier League’s top scorer twice in a row.
However, according to Perez, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy would ask too much for the Englishman which has put the club off asking.
“Signing Harry Kane has not passed through my head,” Perez told Spanish radio station Cadena COPE.
“He is a great player and, in addition, he is young.
“He has many years to progress, but we are delighted with [Karim] Benzema and with all of the team.
“I didn’t ask Tottenham’s president for the price because he would have told me that he is worth €250m.”

The Madrid president also claimed he often receives messages from Levy, who has sold Luka Modric and Gareth Bale to the La Liga side in the past five years, about the club’s success.
Perez added: “Every time we win a European title, he sends me the same message. ‘Congratulations for the European title you have won with my players.’”
Both Modric and Bale have won three Champions Leagues at the club since joining from Spurs in 2012 and 2013 respectively.
