Christian Eriksen agent meets with Real Madrid

The agent of Tottenham playmaker Christian Eriksen is set to meet with Real Madrid over a transfer, according to Marca.

Martin Schoots, the agent of the Denmark international, has already arranged to meet Los Blancos officials regarding a summer move for the player.

On Saturday, Marca outlined how Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has made contact with Madrid general manager José Ángel Sánchez this week to discuss the possibility of a deal.

It is claimed that Los Blancos were interested in the player last summer but the valuation of €150m meant their interest was discontinued, but now Eriksen is said to be priced at €70m.

Madrid and Barcelona have both been heavily linked with a move for the Denmark playmaker, whose contract at Spurs 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 provide funds for squad reinvestment.

A report in Diario AS last month claimed that there was a ‘verbal agreement’ between the former Ajax playmaker and Madrid.

The Spanish giants are said to prefer the signing of Paul Pogba or Donny van de Beek but the option of Eriksen remains on the table as an alternative.
