Real Madrid are reportedly hoping they can seal the transfer of Manchester United target Harry Kane by offering Gareth Bale as part of the deal to Tottenham.
This claim comes from Diario Gol, who suggest that a return for Bale to Spurs could see the north Londoners lower their £133million valuation of Kane.
The Sun linked Kane as a £170m target for United earlier this season, but it may be that Tottenham would relax their stance on the player if he moved abroad instead of to a major rival.
The England striker has had a sensational 2017, finishing the year as Europe’s top scorer and breaking Alan Shearer’s record for Premier League goals in a single calendar year as well.
It is little surprise to see Real reportedly looking at him, with Diario Gol saying he fits the bill perfectly for the Spanish giants right now.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema have not been at their best in terms of goalscoring this season, with Zinedine Zidane’s side already well out of the running in the La Liga title race.
Kane could be a superb addition, and Diario Gol also link Chelsea forward Eden Hazard with a move to the Bernabeu in a major reshuffle in attack.
The pair are among the best in the Premier League and would fit in nicely as Madrid’s new Galacticos if they could pull this ambitious double deal off.
United could look elsewhere to strengthen in attack, with the Sun also previously linking them as approaching Antoine Griezmann over a transfer.
