Tottenham Hotspur star Christian Eriksen has been linked with Real Madrid.

Christian Eriksen of Denmark scores the 2-1 goal during the UEFA Euro 2020 Qualifier match between Denmark and Georgia at Telia Parken on June 10, 2019 in Copenhagen, Denmark.

According to Marca, Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has called Real Madrid to sell them Christian Eriksen.

It has been reported by the Spanish publication that Tottenham chairman Levy has called Madrid director general Jose Angel Sanchez to offer the attacking midfielder to Los Blancos.

 

Spurs wanted €150 million (£134.57m) for the Denmark international last summer, but now they are looking for €70m (£62.8m) for the 27-year-old, according to the report.

Madrid, though, are not accepting the offer, according to Marca, while AS has claimed that Eriksen had agreed personal terms with the Spanish and European giants several months ago.

Smart move from Daniel Levy?

With Eriksen reportedly refusing to sign a new contract with Tottenham, it does make sense from a financial point of view for the North London outfit to cash in on the 27-year-old this summer instead of losing him on a free at the end of next season.

However, Tottenham need to find a suitable replacement for the Denmark international, as he is arguably the most creative player in manager Mauricio Pochettino’s team.
