Tottenham Hotspur are still hopeful of persuading Christian Eriksen to remain at the club.
The Dane revealed shortly after the disappointing Champions League final loss to Liverpool that he wanted to leave North London ahead of the new season whilst also stating his interest in making a move to Real Madrid (Ekstra Bladet).
Eriksen is now within the last year of his contract at Tottenham and could leave the club on a free transfer next summer.
The Daily Mail have claimed that Spurs are willing to offer the playmaker a new deal worth more than double the £80,000-a-week he currently earns.
Key to the negotiations is said to be Eriksen’s requirement to have a clause inserted in a new contract which would allow him to leave for a fixed price if a bid is received from certain clubs.
Such a clause would see Eriksen be able to depart the Champions League finalists in the future if the likes of Real Madrid come calling.
Eriksen’s hopes of a move to the Spanish giants seems to be becoming more and more unlikely with Los Blancos. Ajax’s Donny van de Beek is said to be on the verge of a switch to Zinedine Zidane’s side (Marca).
