Contrasting reports emerge over Madrid’s pursuit of Eriksen

Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen’s future has been the subject of plenty of speculation since the start of the summer but the midfielder ended up staying at the club beyond the transfer window.

The Danish international was heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid after he admitted that he would like to leave North London whilst inviting interest from the Spanish giants (Ekstra Bladet).

While Los Blancos failed to land the 27-year-old in the summer, a report in Marca last week suggested that Madrid are keen to secure Eriksen’s signature for a cut-price deal in January.

The report claimed that the former Champions League winners are keen to make a move in January to bolster their midfield options after making a less than ideal start to the season, especially in European competition.

However, a report by COPE claims that Madrid are ready to wait until the summer to land the midfielder on a free transfer.

The report suggests that Zinedine Zidane’s side will only consider bidding for Eriksen in January should they free up some space in their squad during the window.

If Eriksen does not sign a new deal with the club before January (which appears likely), then the club will do their utmost to sell him in January as they wouldn’t want to lose him on a free.

So if Madrid really do want him, I believe they will be forced to buy him on a cut-price deal in January as other clubs will likely come in for the midfielder too.
