Real Madrid are willing to use Wales forward Gareth Bale as bait to sign Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen.
The Mirror are reporting that the Spanish giants are likely to offload Bale this summer and have set their sights on the Danish playmaker.
Eriksen has just sixteen months to run on his current contract in North London and has yet to agree on a new deal despite talks being held between the club and his representatives (Mail).
The report suggests that Madrid are prepared to offer £50million plus Bale in exchange for Eriksen, who joined Spurs from Ajax in August 2013.
One thing which will leave Spurs fans scratching their heads over a possible Bale return would be how the club would be able to meet his wage demands.
The Welshman signed a new contract with the current Champions League holders in 2016 which is said to be worth around £350,000 a week after tax (Guardian), which is significantly higher than the £200,000 a week that Harry Kane earns (Sun).
