Tottenham Hotspur will demand a fee of around £130 million in excess from Real Madrid summer target Christian Eriksen.
Spurs’ chairman Daniel Levy is yet to convince the Denmark international to renew his contract which expires in a little over a year, and is out to make sure he makes the maximum possible return from the playmaker, hence a £130m price tag.
Should Real Madrid decide to meet Spurs’ asking price, Eriksen will follow in the footsteps of the likes of Luka Modric and Gareth Bale. Eriksen will only be joining his third club in his senior professional career, having moved to Spurs on a £12.15m deal from Ajax in 2013.
The 27-year-old has made 264 total appearances for the white Lily’s, scoring 63 goals ( seven this season) and providing 81 assists ( twelve this season) in his industrious career so far.
According to previous reports from TalkSports, Real Madrid will attempt to lower his asking price by making Gareth Bale part of the deal to sign Eriksen. However, Spurs are very much likely to reject the offer, and Spurs-web has now reported Daniel Levy is already eyeing a replacement for the Dane in Ajax playmaker Hakim Ziyech who has scored 18 goals and provided 16 assists for the Eredivisie side so far in the season.
