Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has told the club’s English rivals they must pay £130 million to sign Christian Eriksen, according to the Telegraph.
Eriksen recently admitted he may seek a new challenge this summer, leading to increased speculation about a possible switch to Real Madrid.
He has also been linked with Manchester United in the past, but Levy seems keen to avoid losing the Dane to a Premier League rival.
The Telegraph claims Levy has told Spurs’ fellow English clubs that he wants a deal worth £130 million if he is to allow Eriksen to stay in this country.
Meanwhile, Levy has apparently told overseas clubs that £80 million will be enough for the playmaker.
However, the report goes on to suggest Eriksen could be left in limbo this summer with Real Madrid prioritising a move for Manchester United’s Paul Pogba.
Madrid have already spent close to £300 million on transfers ahead of the 2019/20 season, much of which was used to take Eden Hazard from Chelsea.
What’s more, the La Liga giants are said to be unwilling to pay more than £70 million for Eriksen, meaning the 27-year-old could end up staying at Tottenham after all.
