Christian Eriksen’s chances of playing for Real Madrid are ‘getting closer’, says El Desmarque on Monday, in what will be news grasped by the Danish sport media.

The Denmark international has informed his agent to say ‘yes’ if Los Blancos come calling.

Spurs are demanding €100m to sanction the former Ajax man’s sale, while the La Liga giants are willing to offer only €80m.

This is where Mauricio Pochettino enters the scene and the manager wants to bring in a replacement for Eriksen before sanctioning his sale, and has identified Real Betis’ Giovanni Lo Celso, Dani Ceballos of Real Madrid and Dinamo Zagreb star Dani Olmo as targets.

The report states Eriksen’s position is not the only area Pochettino wants to strengthen in the summer transfer window.

Real Madrid considered offering Gareth Bale on loan, but were unwilling to pay his €17m per season salary.

The former Southampton manager has asked for Mariano Diaz and Zinedine Zidane, who was counting on the forward despite the arrival of new signings, has given his okay for Diaz to be included as a part of the operation for Eriksen.

If Diaz moves to Tottenham, Eriksen ‘would be a little closer’ to Real Madrid.
