Christian Eriksen may have already agreed personal terms with Real Madrid, according to former Leeds United and Manchester City defender Danny Mills.
The Dane revealed yesterday that he wants to leave Tottenham Hotspur this summer for a new challenge (Ekstra Bladet), with Real Madrid having been linked with a move for the playmaker for a number of months (The Sun).
Eriksen hinted that he could join Madrid in his interview with the Danish media, with Mills suggesting that he already has an agreement but is waiting for Spurs chairman Daniel Levy to try and negotiate a transfer fee with Los Blancos.
The 27-year-old has been a mainstay in the Tottenham team since his transfer from Ajax in 2013 where he has been directly involved in 146 goals in 277 matches for the club during his time in the capital.
While Eriksen may not have enjoyed his best form in recent months, Spurs fans should certainly acknowledge the impact he has had at the club and the void he will leave if Daniel Levy does not adequately back Mauricio Pochettino with transfer funds this summer.
“He’s already agreed terms with Real Madrid, that’s how it appears to me,” he told Football Insider.
“Players only tend to go public with their intention to leave when there is an offer or two on the table.
“Christian Eriksen will know who is knocking on the door, and he will certainly know who are the clubs that are interested.”
“He has specifically named Real Madrid, which suggests he has an agreement with the club, but a fee needs to be agreed,” Mills added.
“That will not be easy, as Daniel Levy will want top dollar for a player who has had a successful season and whose stock is incredibly high at the moment.”
