The speculation surrounding Christian Eriksen’s future has taken a lot of twists and turns this summer.

The Dane came out after the Champions League final defeat and expressed his desire to seek a new challenge and said that he would be open to a move to Madrid (Ekstra Bladet).

However, reports from Spain initially suggested that Los Blancos preferred Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba over the Spurs midfielder (AS).

Now, a report from Spanish media outlet El Desmarque suggests that the Real Madrid are still keen on Eriksen but that the two clubs are quite far apart in their respective valuations of the playmaker.

The report claims that Real Marid are willing to pay £70 million for the 27-year-old, a figure which is £20 million short of the £90 million fee that Tottenham are demanding for him.

The former Ajax man has only 12 months to run on his contract with Tottenham and could walk away for free next summer if he doesn’t sign an extension.

£90 million seems like a steep price for someone who only has 12 months to run on his deal but given the nature of the current market, no one can blame Levy for the asking price.

The Tottenham chairman might settle for a little lesser towards the end of the window as Tottenham’s move for Lo Celso might be dependent on Eriksen’s sale.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Lo Celso should be signed now, regardless of what happens to Eriksen as we need him drilling with the team ASAP (obviously he’ll need a break after the international tournament). Playmakers dont just drop in late and start working straight away, they need to drill with the team.
