Tottenham Hotspur star Christian Eriksen will finalise a transfer to Real Madrid after the Champions League final, according to reports in Spain.

Eriksen has been mooted as one of several players Madrid are said to be chasing as Zinedine Zidane plans a summer overhaul of his squad.

Last week, we relayed reports suggesting Eriksen may be convinced to stay at Spurs if there is a clause in his new contract that allows him to leave for Real Madrid or Barcelona.

But with Madrid seemingly interested in a move for the Dane now, there is no reason for Eriksen to agree to such a clause.

And Spanish outlet El Chiringuito (via Sport Witness) claims Eriksen will be a Madrid player after the Champions League final.

Indeed, Eriksen could be a champion of Europe if Tottenham beat Liverpool in Madrid on June 1st.

But the lure of Real Madrid, who are the current Champions League holders, may be too strong for the 27-year-old to turn down.

There are certain to be plenty more similar stories until Eriksen either confirms he is leaving or signs a new deal with Spurs.



  1. Like most Spurs fans I hope this isn’t true but if it is then so be it, get good money for him now and use it to replace him with someone who may develop to be just as good if not better (not entirely sure who) or aim for a swap deal involving Bale (on subsidies wages) and one of Isco or Ascensio

  2. Eriksen has not yet signed a deal- in part because Ed Woodward (in typical Woodward style) suggested that he would treble Eriksen’s salary.
    No one can blame Eriksen for holding on to see if an offer materializes. At this stage, (in typical Woodward style) it appears unlikely.
    No one can blame Levy for not engaging in negotiations against Woodwards -“smoke & mirrors” proposal. If RM is interested; they are likely to wait
    until after June 1st (CL final) before they submit an offer. If they have agreed to terms with Eriksen and the offer is more than 100 M; there is a good chance he will go.
    Any offer that includes Bale as a “make weight” is unlikely to fly. (Bale is currently worth about 60K a week as a free) (less next year). If RM trys to buy Eriksen’s contract
    for a “lowball price” (less than 100M) Levy is likely to match their “personal terms” and sign Eriksen to a new 3 year contract. At this stage and for the next 3-4 years; RM has no particular appeal as a place to play. Zidane is good and RM is rich but the rebuild will still take several years.
