Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen’s future has been the source of a lot of speculation in the press recently. The Dane’s current contract with the club runs out in the summer of 2020, and he appears to be no closer to signing a new deal with the club.

The 27-year-old has been reported to be one of Madrid’s targets in the summer as Zinedine Zidane looks to rebuild his squad after a disappointing season.

However, according to a report in Marca, (as claimed by The Express), the Spurs man is not top of Zidane’s wish list.

It is claimed that the Los Blancos wish to land Paul Pogba from Manchester United, and have Eriksen lined up as a backup option if they fail in their pursuit of the Frenchman.

The report further claims that Madrid’s interest in Eriksen is primarily due to his contractual situation as they know Spurs will not be able to demand a huge sum for him.

Eriksen, of course, has also been linked with a move to Manchester United as well with reports claiming that Ole Gunnar Solksjaer has identified him as a top target (The Mirror).

Eriksen is clearly biding his time and seeing if the likes of Madrid and Barcelona come in for him, which explains why he is not in a hurry to commit his future to the Lilywhites.

However, one would think that barring the two Spanish giants, the Dane probably wouldn’t swap Tottenham for any other club in world football, give how much the club has progressed in recent seasons.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Eriksen has skill, no doubt about that, but when the going gets tough, the Dane goes shopping. Real Madrid for 130, 40 mill? Levy wishful thinking, I feel.
