Tottenham Hotspur may be forced into selling playmaker Christian Eriksen to Real Madrid this summer, according to Diario AS.
The Madrid-based newspaper cites how Spurs must shift debt accumulated from the opening of their new stadium, regardless of their success in this season’s Champions League.
Madrid and Barcelona have both been heavily linked with a move for the Denmark playmaker, whose contract in North London expires in the summer of 2020.
It is said that Spurs supremo Daniel Levy may allow the club to cash-in on the midfielder this summer, to lesson the financial burden.
“I do not want to add to the speculation about Christian's contract and his future in football, right now he is only focusing on playing,” Eriksen’s agent Martin Schoots was cited as saying by El Mundo Deportivo in March.
This follows from the agent’s comments from February relating to Eriksen: “At this moment I would prefer not to join the speculations about contracts and transfers.”
