Kane has previously been linked with a move to Madrid.

Harry Kane has been chosen by Real Madrid fans as their preferred striking option should the club look to dip into the market for a traditional centre-forward.

Marca survey, which included only orthodox No9s – the likes of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, and Eden Hazard, for example, were not included – saw Kane pick up 26 percent of the fan vote, well ahead of the next-preferred options, Edinson Cavani and Mauro Icardi.

The latter duo both earned 14 percent of fan votes.

Madrid academy products Mariano, now at Lyon, and Rodrigo, currently a Valencia player, did not catch the eye of Madrid fans, getting just 12 percent and 6 percent of the vote respectively.

Robert Lewandowski has been linked with a move to the Spanish capital, though it could cost around €100million to prise him away from Bayern Munich. In any case, the Polish striker was not a popular choice among the Madrid faithful, only 12 percent of whom voted for the 29-year-old.

Cristiano Ronaldo‘s shock transfer to Juventus means Madrid need to replace the 50 goals per season that the Portuguese star more or less guaranteed. Gareth Bale has been tipped to step out of Ronaldo’s shadow and Karim Benzema is being backed to recover from a season-long dip in form, but the two combined for 33 goals last season. Ronaldo managed 44 alone.

Hazard, who would be the traditional Galactico signing and has been heavily linked with a move, scored only 20 goals in 44 appearances last term.

Real Madrid striker Borja Mayoral could on his way out of the Bernabeu this summer, with Alaves emerging as his likely destination.

The 21-year-old Los Blancos youth graduate has featured only fleetingly in the Whites first-team ranks, but did show an eye for goal last season – netting on seven occasions.

Still, his chances of progression appear slim next term despite Cristiano Ronaldo‘s departure and Real’s search for extra forward options.

According to radio station Cadena SER, fellow La Liga side Alaves have been in touch with Mayoral’s representatives concerning the striker’s availability.

It is not yet known how progressive those discussions have been, however, it could represent a good opportunity for the young Spaniard to prove himself once and for all in the top flight.

For now, the attacker will be part of Madrid’s squad for their pre-season tour stateside.
