Real Madrid will look to pile the pressure on Tottenham Hotspur, with a late £60 million bid for playmaker Christian Eriksen.
Spurs are done for the summer, with the Premier League window closed for business. However, Real Madrid are not, and it seems Zinedine Zidane has not lost hope in at least securing Christian Eriksen, after missing out on midfielder Paul Pogba.
Eriksen has less than a year left on his contract, and seems ready to leave the club on free transfer next summer. With no verbal or contract agreement with the club so far.
Tottenham Hotspur’s chairman Levy is determined not to let big assets leave on a free, and Real Madrid are hoping to use Levy’s policy to their advantage over Christian Eriksen — who they see as the successor to Luka Modric.
Mauricio Pochettino had confirmed after a 2-2 draw with Manchester City, that the squad is not closed yet and there could still be some exits before the European window shuts.
“We are not a closed squad where nobody is going to move. Maybe nobody will move,” He said. “The circumstances are that things are still open.
“The market in Europe makes things difficult in the way that we work and this type of situation doesn’t help the coaching staff to create a good dynamic.
Despite Christian Eriksen’s refusal to commit to a new contract at Tottenham Hotspur, Mauricio Pochettino has revealed that he expects the Dane to still feature for the club, while he is available. And has no intention of restricting the player to the squad reserves while his future is being sorted out.
