Real Madrid superstar and Portugal skipper Cristiano Ronaldo is said not to be convinced by his clubs pursuit of Tottenham Hotspur hitman Harry Kane.

At a whopping 200m euro and a threat to his own centre forward Madrid status, Ronaldo has reportedly told club president Florentino Perez to look elsewhere to boost their attack.

Don Balon, a renowned Spanish weekly sport magazine specialized in Spanish and international football claimed the Portuguese star is in support of the clubs interest in Inter Milan Forward and captain Mauro
Icardi. The Argentine, argues Ronaldo is of akin ability to Kane but would come at a cheaper price.

Icardi was ready to join Madrid in January and was reported to have undergone a preliminary medical, only for the deal to be vetoed by club coach Zinedine Zidane.

The Frenchman preferred to stick with his country man Karim Benzema for the remainder of the season but the boss now recognizes the need for a new goal poacher as Benzema has failed to justify the gaffers trust in him.

If it was left for Ronaldo to decide, Madrid would have Mauro Icardi putting on the white jersey next season rather than Harry Kane.
