England and Tottenham captain Harry Kane would be ‘perfect’ for Real Madrid if they needed to replace Karim Benzema, according to Cesc Fabregas.

Kane has put a number of clubs – including Premier League rivals Manchester City and Manchester United – on high alert after informing Spurs of his desire to leave this summer.

The 27-year-old, who scored during England’s Euro 2020 win over Germany on Tuesday, has been one of the most prolific goalscorers in Europe over the past decade.

English champions Man City appear to be at the front of the queue to sign Kane are ready to offer Tottenham around £100m for his signature, but Fabregas reckons he would do a fine job at Spanish giants Madrid if they ever needed to replace Benzema.

‘For a long time I have felt that Harry Kane would be the perfect replacement for Karim Benzema at Real Madrid,’ Fabregas wrote in a column for the Daily Telegraph.

‘Of course, Benzema showed again at the European Championships that he is not going anywhere and that he is playing very, very well, but the fact I even think Kane is capable of taking over from him in Madrid shows how highly I rate him.

‘The pressure at Madrid, like it was at Barcelona, is not something every player could cope with. But if Benzema ever left or ever started to slow down a little bit, then Kane would be the right guy for them.

‘Even without knowing him very well myself, you can see that he has a good mentality and you hear from other people that he works and trains hard.

‘Jose Mourinho, as people saw on the documentary, always talks about Kane very, very highly. He has what you want from your captain and he has what you need to be a top player.

‘For five or six years now Kane has been one of the best strikers in the world. He has been so consistent, scoring so many goals and there have been so many games that he changed.

‘Last season, we also saw that he is still adding new things to his game with all of his assists for Tottenham.’

Kane scored England’s second goal in a 2-0 win over Germany this week as Gareth Southgate’s side booked their place in the quarter-finals of Euro 2020.

Following the memorable victory at Wembley, Kane said: ‘Any team will look at us and know that we’re dangerous.

‘There isn’t anything bigger than this when the expectation is on and we delivered, so we should be proud – but we can’t stop here. We have a vision of where we want to go and we can’t stop now.

‘Hopefully we’ll be back here in the semi-finals and the final.’
