Former Barcelona midfield star Xavi Hernandez has backed his former teammate Lionel Messi in the debate over who the better player is between the Argentine and Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo. He is driven to be one of the world's best.

I have every trust in Harry. He relishes the occasions.

Kane struck twice for the Three Lions during their 4-0 win over Malta last week which saw him take his tally for his country to 10 from 20 games.

'You have to go through some kind of hardship to get to where Spain are, for instance, ' he said. He'd come and say: 'Hold on a minute, why? "He's doing that for Spurs, and now in the biggest matches".

Real offered Gareth Bale instead but the 29-year-old Welsh global refused to move, preferring one more season at the Bernabeu before returning to English football. "Alan [Shearer] was 25 when he was top scorer in Euro 96".

Harry is still in the early stages of his career, but he's top scorer in the league two years running and in a really good place.

And yet despite Kane's brilliance, and the fact that Spain would love to have him, Southgate admitted that England could not dream of comparing themselves with Lopetegui's side.

"We have some players like Phil [Jones] who have won trophies, but a lot who have won none".

Messi and Xavi spent 11 seasons together at Barca, winning four Champions League titles.

According to The Times, the Portuguese, a three-time Ballon d'Or victor, had informed the Red Devils about his desire to return to Old Trafford and the Spanish capital club were willing to come to the negotiation table.

The report claims that the 12-time Champions League winners were in advanced talks with the France global and even agreed personal terms in principle with his father, who also acts as his advisor.
