A weeks or so ago, everything looked set for Christian Eriksen to make a move to Spanish giants Real Madrid in the summer transfer window.
After the playmaker told the Danish press that he desired a new challenge and a step up away from Tottenham, his future looked all but sealed (Ekstra Bladet).
However, the latest developments have now revealed that Real Madrid may not even want the Danish international.
Some reports state that Zinedine Zidane has his heart set on Paul Pogba as his main midfield addition in the summer rebuild (Metro).
This has left the Tottenham-Eriksen situation in somewhat of a limbo, with no one quite sure if the midfield man is leaving or signing a new contract.
The latest report out of L’Equipe states that Pogba is the only option interesting Zidane, which has come as a surprise even to the Man United player.
However, what is even more surprising is that the French media outlet claim Real Madrid have recently received ‘very negative reports’ regarding Eriksen’s personality, implying this may have put them off.
Spurs Web Opinion:
I’m not quite sure what L’Equipe mean by this. Eriksen has always come across as a level-headed and nice character in the Tottenham dressing room, so I’m not sure what kind of personality clash there could be in that respect. Either way, if they don’t want him, I want him signed to a new deal ASAP so we can put this saga behind us.
