Tottenham Hotspur fans have been left hopeful that Christian Eriksen will stay at the club after Marca claimed that Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane does not rate him.
The Spanish giants have been heavily linked with a potential move for the Denmark international in the summer transfer window.
But this new report claims that Real are more likely to prioritise a move for Manchester United star Paul Pogba, while identifying Ajax’s Donny van de Beek as the Plan B.
Indeed, the report states that Zidane feels Eriksen “lacks the punch” required to become a key member of his squad at Santiago Bernabeu.
Spurs fans have been left delighted over the report, as surprising as it may be, and the Dane even scored against the Spanish giants as Spurs beat Real 3-1 at Wembley in 2017.

Nevertheless, it appears that a transfer grows all the more unlikely as the window drags on.
Take a look at the best of the reaction below!
Probably fake news. I wouldn’t put it past the guy to say that. If he bad mouths his own players.
Better Erikson stay with Spurs who would treat him like a prince than Real Madrid who would pay him like a prince but treat him like a dog.
