Tottenham star Christian Eriksen remains on Real Madrid‘s radar as the club continue their pursuit of a midfielder, according to reports.
While it is no secret that Zinedine Zidane is desperate to bring Manchester United man Paul Pogba to the Spanish capital, speculation surrounding a move for last season’s Ajax breakout Donny van de Beek has intensified in recent days.
However, according to a report in AS, Madrid have kept in contact with Eriksen’s representatives in case a deal for Pogba – which is looking increasingly unikely – falls through.
Complicating the situation is United’s reported interest in the 27-year-old Dane, despite the reluctance of Tottenham to sell one of their best players to a Premier League rival.
Spurs risk losing Eriksen, who has scored 49 times in 206 Premier League appearances, on a free next summer with his contract running down.
Tottenham – who are looking to secure Real Betis midfielder Giovani Lo Celso as a potential replacement – face a decision on whether to accept a higher transfer fee from United, or sell him to a club outside of England.
It is understood that Real remains Eriksen’s clear No.1 choice, though AS report that he is ‘seriously’ considering the offer from Manchester.
