Real Madrid can afford to sign Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen in January
After around six years at Tottenham, Christian Eriksen looked as though he wanted out of North London over the summer.
Eriksen would make a rather big claim, in which he stated that he might want to try something new.
“I feel I am at a place in my career where I might want to try something new.” As quoted by the Independent.
In the same interview, the Dane spoke about Spanish giants Real Madrid and how they are a step up:
“There are not many goals that Tottenham cannot meet. If I have to go, then hopefully it will be a step up. [Real Madrid] is a step up but it requires Real Madrid to call Tottenham and say they want Christian. And they have not done that yet, as far as I know.” As quoted by the Independent.
Despite Eriksen seemingly hinting he wanted a move to Real Madrid, nothing would materialise over the summer window.
Eriksen has instead started the 2019/20 campaign as a Spurs player.
However, the midfield maestro is now in the final year of his current contract.
Should Eriksen not sign a new deal, Mauricio Pochettino’s side would lose Eriksen for free next summer.
The Mirror recently ran a report, in which they alleged Tottenham hope to sell Eriksen to Real in January, instead of losing him for free in the summer.
Well now, according to Spanish outlet AS, Real Madrid do have the funds to sign Eriksen in the winter window:
Madrid have the funds to sign the Tottenham midfielder in the winter transfer window. It will depend on how the team is performing, and if there are long-term injuries…
