Christian Eriksen has been linked with a move to Real Madrid, with a year left on his contract at Tottenham Hotpsur.
Last week, the 27-year-old told Danish media he’s considering trying something new next season, while he also admitted he could continue with the Champions League runners-up.
Earlier today, we carried a report from Marca, who claimed that Los Blancos manager Zinedine Zidane has set his sights on signing Manchester United’s Paul Pogba, which is why he ‘does not want’ the former Ajax man or any other player.
This has also been relayed by another Spanish newspaper AS, who claim the 13-time European champions have stopped the operation to sign the Denmark international and focused their efforts on landing the World Cup winner.
It is claimed the playmaker ‘does not see anything clearly’, even though he had a verbal agreement with Real Madrid.
This situation has made the Spurs star ‘desperate’ and also made him think about the ‘necessity to listen to the renewal offer’ from the north London club because Mauricio Pochettino considers him one of his key players.
A new deal will mean an increase in salary for Eriksen. When he joined Tottenham in 2013, his salary was at €2m per year, which was later increased to €4m-a-season three years later.
The report states the player has an offer from the Premier League club to extend his contract by four years and also see his net salary increase to €6m per season.
If Eriksen agrees to a new deal, his wages will be on par with Dele Alli and Hugo Lloris, with Harry Kane ahead of them with an annual salary of €8.8m.
AS explains Daniel Levy has made it clear that his side will not lose Eriksen for nothing in 2020.
This situation is only possible if he continues at the club beyond the summer transfer window and decides to not sign a new deal.
