Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane is reportedly not on Real Madrid's five-striker shortlist as the Spanish giants look for a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo.
Los Blancos were unable to sign a replacement for the outgoing Ronaldo last summer, and the European champions have struggled for goals this season with Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema both finding it difficult to fill the void.
Madrid have long been linked with a move for Kane, but according to Calciomercato, the England captain is not on the club's shortlist, which will be explored at the end of the season.
Indeed, the report has claimed that Inter Milan's Mauro Icardi, RB Leipzig's Timo Werner, Genoa's Krzysztof Piatek, Sporting Lisbon's Bas Dost and Tottenham Hotspur's Fernando Llorente are the five forwards being considered.
Madrid became Club World Cup winners for a fourth time when they beat Al Ain 4-1 in the final of the 2018 competition on December 22.
