According to a report in Spanish publication El Desmarque (as translated by HITC), Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen has agreed personal terms with Real Madrid and will move to the club on the free transfer next summer.
The Danish international, who is into the final year of his contract at Spurs, has made no secret of his desire to seek a new challenge (Ekstra Bladet).
He was linked heavily with Real Madrid last summer but a move failed to materialise in the end (The Sun).
His form for Tottenham during the current campaign has left a lot to be desired with many questioning the 27-year-old’s commitment.
It is claimed that Spurs tried multiple times to extend the Dane’s contract but that he had his heart set on a move to Madrid (The Sun).
It now looks like he is finally set to get his move next summer with the report confirming that he is likely to be Madrid’s first signing as part of the Spanish giants attempts to bolster their midfield.
While the report suggests that there is still a chance of Madrid attempting to sign Eriksen for £25 million in January, it is believed that they are more likely to wait until the summer and land him on a free transfer.

This saga has really been drawn out for way too long and it has not done Spurs, Madrid or Eriksen any favours. It is unclear if the club actually received a bids for Eriksen in the summer but if they did, they should have moved him on then. Hopefully he leaves for £25m in January rather than on a free transfer in the summer.
