Real Madrid have re-entered talks with the agent of Tottenham star Christian Eriksen, according to the Mirror.
Eriksen was heavily linked with Madrid in the summer after admitting he may seek a new challenge but a move failed to materialise. He has since been used intermittently by Mauricio Pochettino, most recently starting on the bench in Spurs’ humiliating 7-2 home defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League.
The Dane doesn’t appear to be any closer to signing a new contract with Spurs. His current deal expires at the end of the season, so he will be able to discuss pre-contract terms with foreign clubs in January.
But it seems his agent has already made a head-start. The Mirror claims Eriksen’s representatives will travel to Spain for talks with Madrid this weekend, which could speed up a transfer for the playmaker.
It’s unclear whether Madrid plan to sign Eriksen in January for a cut-price fee or next summer for nothing. Regardless, it is becoming more and more inevitable that the 27-year-old will not be a Tottenham for much longer.
