The 33-year-old Chiellini, believes you cannot put a price on the England striker but warned Spurs fans they will lose their man if Real Madrid come calling.

He said: “Kane is now among the elite players in the world. Over the last years, with the goals he has scored, he has been on the level of the best.

“Messi, Ronaldo, Neymar — Kane has been on that level. He is one of those players that is irreplaceable - and I am sure that Tottenham will be doing all they can to make sure he stays.

“It is now a game where you cannot even guess at valuations anymore. There are maybe four or five teams who will pay whatever they need to pay to get the player.

“They are huge sums, but that is the world we now live in — when one of those four or five teams want a player, then they usually get them.

“He is their star player - but they are not where they are because of one player. They are strong in all positions but more than that they are organised and play for each other.

Chiellini added:“They are strong in attack and organised in defence and hard to break down.

“We know we are going to have to be at our best over the two games- but we are ready for the challenge.”
