The Champions League holders are looking at the Spurs midfielder as their potential big-name signing in this window, reportedly readying a €100 million offer.
With the transfer window now slammed shut for English clubs, it still remains open for clubs across Europe to make further additions, including players from clubs in England. Tottenham having finished their window with no incomings or outgoings could now lose star midfielder Christian Eriksen to Real Madrid all according to Transfermarketweb.
Real Madrid are still looking for that marquee signing they are so used to making each summer and have their eyes firmly placed on Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen. With the Madrid club able to sign players from all leagues until August 31st they are all set to make a move for the Danish star before the deadline.
They feel Eriksen’s box-to-box qualities make him an essential player to be signed as well as the fact that another one of the stars in Luka Modric is reportedly close to leaving. Florentino Perez feels that it is Eriksen who could replace the ageless Croatian superstar at the club, should the World Cup Golden Ball winner move away from Madrid.
Madrid have also been busy making deals and signed Thibaut Courtois on deadline day (England) in a €35 million move from Chelsea while letting go of Mateo Kovacic in the opposite direction on a season’s loan. Alternatively, Madrid could also be looking at Eriksen to replace Kovacic and his phenomenal qualities as a midfielder.
Eriksen has been with Tottenham since the beginning of the 2013/14 season and has been one of their top performers, season after season under Mauricio Pochettino. His current deal expires in the summer of 2020, and there has been no indication of a new deal nor a signal which would indicate Erkisen would like to continue his career in North London.
At 25, the Dane has a long career ahead, and for some reason, he might be thinking clubs like Real, might only come once. That said, the player could be reluctant to stay any longer at Tottenham and might want to move to Spain and upgrade his career.
Spurs are reportedly demanding €100 million for their star, who has only two years to run on his deal. That said, it’s going to be interesting to see how this saga pans out, and if Spurs will be willing enough to sell Eriksen if a genuinely big offer comes in, especially in the light of the financial struggles due to the emergence of their new stadium.
Will Eriksen to Real Madrid make sense? It certainly would, and the Danish midfielder has a profile of a future superstar, something he could achieve being at Real Madrid.
