We have heard enough of potential Christian Eriksen’s move to Real Madrid, in fact its frustrating after a point of time. Though there were reports last week suggesting Zinedine Zidane preferring services of either of Paul Pogba or Donny Van De Beek ahead of Danish midfield maestro.
But it didn’t end all the Madrid links…and now here are reports suggesting Daniel Levy offering Eriksen to Real.
Let me get deep into that;
Eriksen has been an influential figure for Mauricio Pochettino and his Tottenham since his move from Ajax in 2013, and he boasts a tally of 66 goals and 86 assists in 277 appearances and with his contract due next year, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has reportedly offered Christian Eriksen to Real Madrid.
Although looking at the situation from one side of the fence, Spurs will sure be desperate to avoid losing Eriksen to build up on success they achieved last season and talking about Mauricio, he would certainly be desperate to redeem this option rather than look to replace any outgoing individuals.
Unfortunately for Mauricio and Tottenham fans, fueling all the reports The Times reported his family already searching for home in Madrid which was followed by Marca story claiming Levy offering the Dane to Santiago Bernabeau side.
Sport Witness report, as per the paper edition of Marca:
‘Daniel Levy, president of Spurs, a few days ago called José Ángel Sánchez, general manager of Real Madrid, offering the services of the midfielder, after the repeated refusal of Eriksen to renew a contract that ends on June 30, 2020. The midfielder is ready to wait and be free just a year from now,’
Although there has been an additional report which indicates Spurs valuing Christian Eriksen for €70 million, though Real Madrid aren’t interested in paying such hefty amount for Eriksen considering the fact they can snap him up for nothing next summer, and it remains to be seen whether both the clubs settle on a common ground.
Real Madrid’s supporters have been extremely happy by the club’s transfer activity so far in the summer, with Eder Militao, Luka Jovic, Eden Hazard, Rodrygo Goes and Ferland Mendy all being signed already.
But they’re not finished yet. Time will tell if Eriksen will be the next world class addition to the side – without even considering some of the fine players already at the club. Zidane will surely have to offload players and balance the books too before he can start splashing out again.
