According to L’Equipe, Real Madrid are interested in signing Christian Eriksen in the summer transfer window, but the Spanish and European giants have recently received very negative reports recently on the Tottenham Hotspur attacking midfielder.

The French publication has also claimed that Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane is keen on landing midfielder Paul Pogba from Manchester United, and perhaps Los Blancos will not make a move for Eriksen.

 

After all, Madrid have recently secured the services of Belgium international attacking midfielder Eden Hazard from Chelsea, and Eriksen is quite a similar player.

Another player who has been linked with a move away from Tottenham is Eric Dier.

According to The Times, Manchester United are interested in Dier and are looking at the England international - who can operate as a defensive midfielder or as a defender - as a possible candidate to play in the holding midfield role that Nemanja Matic current occupies.

However, according to The Daily Mail, United have reservations about Dier’s fitness and may not spend the £40 million needed to sign him if he is not a guaranteed starter.

Perhaps Tottenham will be able to keep hold of both Eriksen and Dier beyond the summer after all.
