Tottenham Star Puts Contract Talks On Hold After Real Madrid Interest
One of Tottenham's best players has put contract negotiations on hold after finding out that Real Madrid might come calling, according to Marca.
Christian Eriksen's Spurs contract runs out in 2020 and the Spanish news outlet understands that the Danish midfielder has stalled talks of new deal due to preliminary contact from the Spanish giants.
Real Madrid could sell Luka Modric next year as it is believed Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is not going to renew his contract, while Isco could also be on the way out as he has reportedly fallen out with new boss Santiago Solari.
Eriksen wants to lift silverware after going five years in North London without winning a trophy and would be a like-for-like replacement for Isco or Modric.
The reports have also put Juventus on red alert, however, according to Marca, Daniel Levy isn't going to let the 26-year-old leave for cheap.
The Spurs chief has reportedly valued the midfield maestro at a premier price of 250million Euros.
Meanwhile, Eriksen's attention will be on Sunday's North London derby against bitter rivals Arsenal.
Both sides go into the game at the Emirates in fine form, as Unai Emery's side are currently on 18-game unbeaten run (14W, 4D), while Mauricio Pochettino's side have won their last six, including a 3-1 trashing last weekend over fellow Londoners Chelsea.
Spurs are 7/4 to win the match and end Arsenals run, while the Gunners are 13/8 for the three points. A draw might be a sensible bet at 13/5.
