Tottenham Hotspur playmaker Christian Eriksen is entering the final year of his current contract at the club, leaving Daniel Levy with an important decision to make.
Spurs must either sign the Great Dane up to a new deal, sell him for a profit, or risk losing him on a free in the summer of 2020.
Eriksen has been widely linked with a move to Real Madrid this summer (Marca), and the latest reports claim that Los Blancos have proposed a deal to the North London club.
Madrid apparently value Eriksen at €80m this summer, while they rate their own attacking midfielder, Dani Ceballos, at €50m (El Desmarque).
Spurs have been heavily linked with a move for Ceballos in the past week (Estadio Deportivo).
They are therefore proposing a €30m plus player deal for Eriksen this transfer window, something that Spurs have turned their noses up at.
Daniel Levy is said to rate Eriksen at €100m, leaving Real €20m shy of the price the Spurs chairman is looking for.
Another report out of Desmarque claims that Pochettino wants Real Madrid striker Mariano Diaz as part of any Eriksen deal, so this one could rumble on for a while.
