Tottenham Hotspur defender Jan Vertonghen has talked up teammate Harry Kane, declaring that he would not swap the striker for any other player in the world.
Kane's stunning form for club and country in recent years - including 15 competitive goals to his credit already this term - has led to links with top sides around Europe, including rumoured interest from Real Madrid.
Spurs face off against Los Blancos in the Champions League tomorrow night and, speaking to reporters at a pre-match press conference today, Vertonghen insisted that he would not even exchange Kane for Madrid frontman Cristiano Ronaldo.
"They are both unbelievable players," he said. "Ronaldo has his qualities and Harry has his.
"We have to show respect to Ronaldo for what he has won, his level and how he is still doing it.
"Harry for me is one of the best No 9s in Europe, maybe the best. He shows that every week and I wouldn't swap Harry for any player at the moment."
