Two days ago, The Mirror in England reported that Christian Eriksen of Tottenham Hotspur has emerged as a summer transfer target for Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane.

The Mirror’s report linking the 27-year-old to Los Blancos gets mentioned across various Spanish newspapers, including AS, who also provide additional information regarding the 13-time European champions’ past interest in the former Ajax man.

On January 9th, we covered a report from AS, who explained the La Liga giants approached the north London club in their efforts to sign the Spurs star, whose contract with his current employer will expire in 2020.

The 13-time European champions were forced to withdraw from their efforts for the Denmark international because chairman Daniel Levy demanded €250m for his player. The Tottenham chief had then closed the door for Eriksen’s exit.

Thursday’s edition of the same publication goes over Levy’s efforts and says ‘Spurs looked to cool interest’ in the player. It worked for Tottenham, and Real Madrid backed away. 

The Spanish club could return, especially given Eriksen’s contract situation, but there’s no real claim of that, and nearly everything is coming from England.
