Real Madrid ‘the first choice’ for Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen

Tottenham playmaker Christian Eriksen is said to be increasingly open to a move away from the club with Real Madrid his first-choice option.

The Denmark international is said to be on the shortlist of both Barcelona and Real Madrid while his contract at the North London club now has less than 18 months left to run.

Diario AS cite sources as saying the 26-year-old is unlikely to renew his deal at Spurs and a move to the current European champions would be his ‘first option’.

Earlier this month, Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino told reporters: “He is happy here, he is showing his commitment.

“Then, what is going to happen between him and the club is not only in our hands.”
