The Christian Eriksen to Real Madrid story is a mess, even as far as transfer sagas go.

This week Marca reported that he’s not even Real Madrid’s plan b to Paul Pogba right now, with Donny van de Beek the preferred option.

Then it was claimed in Denmark that Eriksen’s family have been house hunting for him in the Spanish capital, which has led to claims of a move being close.

And now Marca, staying firm on their claim there’s no big attempt for the Tottenham player, report Daniel Levy has been on the telephone.

The state ‘the world has turned upside down’ and that after Real Madrid tried to sign the Denmark international last summer, this time he’s being offered to them.

‘Daniel Levy, president of Spurs, a few days ago called José Ángel Sánchez, general manager of Real Madrid, offering the services of the midfielder, after the repeated refusal of Eriksen to renew a contract that ends on June 30, 2020. The midfielder is ready to wait and be free just a year from now.’

Now, it may be suspected Levy would just get on the telephone directly to Florentino Perez, seeing as the pair have had contact repeatedly in the past.

Anyway, Marca say the Spurs chief is concerned there’s a real chance of losing Eriksen for nothing, and is taking proactive steps to stop that from happening.

According to the report, Tottenham want at least €70m.

Real Madrid, for now, have ‘turned a deaf ear to the offer’.
