Tottenham want to sell Christian Eriksen in January to avoid losing him on a free transfer next summer, according to the Mirror.
A selection of stories concerning Eriksen’s future have emerged over the last few days, which either suggests there is some truth to the rumours of his exit, or the press has nothing else to right about during the international break.
First, let’s look at the Mirror’s report. They claim Spurs are planning to sell Eriksen midway through the season, reiterating that the club have offered him a new contract but he is not interested in extending his stay in north London.
Meanwhile, Spanish outlet Marca believes Eriksen is a ‘serious option’ for Real Madrid in January. The Dane was heavily linked with Real in the summer and is even said to have turned down Manchester United because he only wants to move to La Liga.
Finally, the Daily Mail echoes previous stories suggesting Real president Florentino Perez is keen on Eriksen, but manager Zinedine Zidane would rather sign his countryman Paul Pogba from Manchester United.
It will be interesting to see if Eriksen is willing to join another club if Real prioritise a move for Pogba.
