Real are interested in Eriksen

Real Madrid are interested in the purchase of Tottenham’s Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen. The Madridians want to replace the 33-year old Luka Modric with the halfback, whose peak shape passed after the summer World Cup.

London Tottenham’s midfielder is having a good season, which became a consequence of the Dane’s confident game in the Mondial. Considering that Los Blancos’ key constructor of attack has become worse against the results of the team under Lopetegui’s management and stagnation under Solari’s management, the transfer may happen next year already.

This season Eriksen has been a trump card in Mauricio Pochettino’s sleeve. The proof of that was the victory match against Inter at Wembley, where the 26-year old halfback brought victory to the Spurs and took the team back into the battle for the Champions League. The midfielder has played 10 matches in the English Premier League this season, having spent 67 minutes on average per game. During this time he made four assists. In total, over the last three seasons, Eriksen made 69 effecient actions in the league, therefore it is no surprise that he has attracted foreign giants.

The Catalan Barcelona was chasing the player, considering him as a substitute for failed negotiations with Coutinho and Liverpool last August. However, the price that the London club had set frightened Blaugranas. The same thing can happen with Real. Tottenham President Levy is known for a meticulous approach to selling players and now the club has set a price tag for the football player of 250 million euros according to Marca newspaper. If the transfer takes place - Eriksen will be the most expensive transfer in the history of football, beating the current record holder Neymar by 28 million euros.

This summer, BetVictor bookmaker predicted Eriksen’s transfer. Real had more chances to get the Dane - 6/2, after Los Blancos there was the French PSG (4/1), the Catalan Barcelona (8/1) and Bayern with Manchester City (12/1).
