If reports in the press are to be believed, then the Champions League final against Liverpool could be Christian Eriksen’s last game for Tottenham.

The Dane has just one year left on his contract and has been linked with a summer move to Real Madrid as Zinedine Zidane looks to rebuild his squad (El Chiringuito).

Former Tottenham manager Juande Ramos has now issued a warning to Real Madrid over pursuing players from the North London club.

Ramos, who also managed Madrid for around six months after leaving Spurs, suggested that Tottenham Chairman Daniel Levy would empty the club’s pockets if they attempt to try and prise players away from the Premier League outfit.

Speaking to Radio MARCA: he said, “If Real Madrid want to sign Tottenham players, Levy will empty their pockets.

“They have a lot of very good players and are a huge club. “They are predominantly a business, but the potential of the club has grown incredibly.”

The 64-year-old, who is still the last Spurs manager to win silverware at the club, also spoke about the criticism that Gareth Bale has received at Real Madrid this season.

Ramons opined that a lot of it has been unwarranted, and has to do with the team’s poor showing this season.

He added: “These criticisms (Bale’s) are based on the performance of the team. When Real Madrid were European champions for three successive years, there was no talk about Bale’s form.

“Yet this year, when the team didn’t reach their objectives there is criticism, I have no doubt that Gareth Bale is a great player.”

Spurs Web Opinion

While it is certainly true that Daniel Levy might demand a world record fee should Real Madrid come in for Harry Kane or Dele Alli, the situation is different in Eriksen’s case.

With just one more year left on his contract, the club doesn’t have too much leverage in terms of the asking price.
