Tottenham Bracing Themselves For £40Million Real Madrid Bid To Snatch Star

Moderately back on track after the sacking of Julen Lopetegui and the installing of Santiago Solari, Real Madrid are looking to restore the prestige that began to evaporate mere months after lifting their third successive Champions League win.

Inadequately replacing the departed Cristiano Ronaldo in the summer seems to weigh heavily on Los Blancos’ mind (Manchester United's Marcus Rashford is the latest name to be linked with a move to the Santiago Bernabeu), but with the news that a sensational deal involving a Tottenham reunion for Gareth Bale with England star Harry Kane heading the other way, mere weeks after being rebuffed in their reported advances for manager Mauricio Pochettino, Real Madrid still aren’t prepared to leave Spurs alone.

The majestic playmaker Christian Eriksen is in their sights, interest more vehement with the knowledge has the Dane has just 18 months left on his contract and currently earns around £70,000 per week; a figure the lavish Madrid could happily exceed to procure his services.

Though a £40million is said to be the ballpark figure to be tabled, according to SunSport, which would be a significant profit on the £11million Spurs originally paid to Ajax for the midfielder back in 2013, the Lilywhites hierarchy will be well aware they could wrack up the digits on his price-tag for the player consistently considered one of the Premier League’s best.

Eriksen has made close to 250 appearances for Tottenham, and contributed 57 goals and a remarkable 73 assists.

At 26-years-old, observing the success that was forthcoming for Spurs alumni Luka Modric after moving to the Spanish capital, and with silverware elusive in North London, could Eriksen’s head be turned in January?
