According to El Confidencial, Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has urged Los Blancos president Florentino Perez to move for Tottenham Hotspur’s Christian Eriksen.
Eriksen will see his current deal with Tottenham expire at the end of next season.
And it does appear that the Denmark international – valued at £76.5m by Transfermarkt – will look to leave his London club.
Real Madrid are expected to spend this summer due to their struggles this season, with El Confidencial claiming that Eriksen is a priority for the Spanish giants.
Eriksen has been a wonderful servant to Spurs since arriving from Ajax in 2013, scoring 63 times and providing 81 assists in 264 appearances in all competitions.
However, a number of the Premier League club’s supporters feel that it is time for the 27-year-old to move on.
Eriksen has scored seven times for Spurs this season, but has lacked consistency and it does appear that his head is already elsewhere.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the Tottenham fans can be seen below:
Honestly think it’s time for Eriksen to go his performance levels have dropped this season.
