Real Madrid are preparing an offer of £45 million plus midfielder Dani Ceballos to sign Christian Eriksen from Tottenham, according to the Sun.
Eriksen recently revealed he may seek a new challenge this summer leading to plenty of speculation about a move to Madrid.
Yesterday we relayed a report suggesting the La Liga giants are unwilling to pay more than £70 million for the Dane, but Spurs are said to be asking for £80 million.
And now, the Sun claims Madrid will attempt a cash-plus-player deal in an attempt to convince Tottenham to sell.
The newspaper believes Madrid are willing to put £45 million on the table while also offering Ceballos in part exchange.
Ceballos scored three goals in 23 La Liga appearances last season and is highly rated at the Bernabeu.
However, the 22-year-old has apparently told Zinedine Zidane he wants to leave in order to play more regularly elsewhere.
Spurs will surely be tempted by the deal given that they are desperate for reinforcements in central midfield.
That said, the Londoners appear to be continuing their pursuit of Lyon’s Tanguy Ndombele, meaning they may not feel the need to accept a deal that involves Ceballos.
