Tottenham Hotspur may be in the market for a new playmaker this summer if Real Madrid get their hands on current star Christian Eriksen.

The Great Dane will enter the final year of his contract at the end of this season, and there have been no recent murmurings of a new deal.

It has been reported that Eriksen is on Zinedine Zidane’s five-man wishlist this summer (Daily Mail).

Spurs have therefore been linked to a number of potential replacements, and many will already know of the club’s history with regards to Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish.

Tottenham had a bid of £25m turned down last summer (Sky Sports), and if they want to revisit a move for the midfield man, they will have to pay for the privilege.

The Mirror say that, since signing his new contract in 2018, Grealish now has a whopping buy-out clause of £60m.

The same report also claims that Grealish is on £70,000 a week, making him the highest paid player in the Championship.

Spurs Web Opinion:

I would have been a big fan of Tottenham getting Grealish for around £30m last summer, but £60m for a player unproven in the Premier League is far too much of a risk for me. I would argue that alternatives such as Donny Van de Beek for £45m (Daily Mail), or even James Maddison from Leicester would prove to be far more bang for their buck.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Both of those numbers are wrong. His buy out clause is either 40 or 45 mill. Still a ridiculous amount of money but a lot less than the number quoted

  2. Can somebody explain to me how jack Grealish is even on Spurs Radar, and if so how could he possibly have a price tag above 12 million?? Please show me the stats that can justify this . Also doesn’t it seem strange that if he is any good that only Spurs think so. He is not 18 anymore. Jack was rubbish in the premiere League before and has done little in the Championship to even warrant any of those numbers.

    Is his agent a master marketer ??
