In the long and ever-growing list of tiresome transfer sagas, Christian Eriksen is a player that ranks very highly.
The Tottenham midfielder has wanted out since the Champions League final defeat to Liverpool, and the rumours have been constant since then.
A whole host of big clubs have been linked with a move, including Real Madrid, particularly because Florentino Pérez likes him as a good market opportunity.
With Eriksen’s contract at Tottenham expiring next summer, it seemed likely that we were set for several months of more speculation, but that may not be the case.
According to El Desmarque, a move to Real Madrid has already been tied up. They report that Eriksen has ‘everything completely closed’ for a deal.
Eriksen has already agreed on his role in the team and the salary he will earn, and he will be the club’s first signing next summer.
Contact between the Tottenham man and Madrid has been going on for ‘several months’ and when his contract at Spurs ends, he will move to the Bernabeu on a free. The move should be ‘announced in a few weeks’.
Madrid are even considering spending €30m to move Eriksen in January, but whatever happens, it ‘seems clear’ that the Danish midfielder will end up in Madrid.
Tottenham have tried their best to keep Eriksen and tried again after hiring José Mourinho, but it was to no avail.
He’s got his mind set on moving to Madrid and knows he will likely find himself benched at Spurs in the meantime but considers his ‘dream’ move worth it.
