The Spanish media are tipping Tottenham to make a January move for Gareth Bale that would see Christian Eriksen join Real Madrid.
Eriksen is out of contract at the end of the season while Bale is expected to leave Madrid in the near future after almost departing for China last summer. Real have been heavily linked with Eriksen in the past, and the Bernabeu is thought to be one of numerous potential destinations for the Dane if Spurs allow him to leave next month.
Spanish outlet El Desmarque claims Bale has been in touch with Jose Mourinho since the Portuguese became Spurs manager. They also believe Tottenham are willing to pay €30 million plus Christian Eriksen to re-sign Bale in the winter window.
In many ways the deal would work for all parties, though there will continue to be doubts over whether Spurs can afford Bale’s huge wages. If it happened, it’s likely Tottenham would ask Real to continue covering some of the Welshman’s salary – is that realistic?
The report seems very speculative, but it will certainly get Spurs fans talking. Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
