Tottenham Hotspur may find it tricky to hold onto their star playmaker Christian Eriksen this summer, as the Great Dane has been linked with a move away to Real Madrid (Daily Star).
Eriksen is in the final year of his contract at Tottenham, and if the player refuses to sign a new deal, Spurs could be forced to sell up.
When it comes to contracts entering the final year, a club has three options: agree a new deal, sell the player, or lose them on a free next year.
Spurs won’t want to miss out on the giant fee Eriksen would surely fetch, especially if they are looking to invest in this summer transfer window.
However, AS now report that Real Madrid will not pay any more than around £62m for the attacking midfielder.
Eriksen is undoubtedly one of the best in the business, but after having a below par last few months, and with just one year left in North London, should Spurs take what they can get?
Spurs Web Opinion:
In my opinion, Levy should work his magic and drive Madrid up to £70m, then use £60m of those funds to immediately buy James Maddison as a like-for-like replacement. Spurs would have made a huge profit on Eriksen, got years of service out of him, and then bought a younger replacement for cheaper. How could that be better?
