Real Madrid Target Tottenham Hotspur’s Midfielder
Christian Eriksen Preferred Over Pogba
Spanish side Real Madrid want Christian Eriksen rather than Paul Pogba. Boss Zinedine Zidane has highlighted central midfield as a position which needs improving as his Real Madrid transformation continues.
The European giants have spent close to £200 million in the past week to add Eden Hazard and Luka Jovic. However, Los Blancos hope to add another big name to their squad. Real have also agreed deals for Eder Militao and Rodrygo.
As a result, Real would prefer a cheap midfield option – which allows them to work on persuading Eriksen to the Bernabeu.
Zidane continues to hold interest in fellow Frenchman Pogba; however, the Real boss knows a deal with the Manchester United ace is unlikely this summer.
Pogba is open to departing Old Trafford but the United hierarchy are proving a major hurdle. The Red Devils would likely hold out for a deal in excess of £150million.
As a result, Eriksen’s push to leave Tottenham has changed the dynamic of Real’s transfer targets.
The Dane has just a year of his contract left and is keen to leave in search of silverware. Spurs would, therefore, need to sell the Denmark international this summer or risk losing him for free next year.
The Sun claim that Tottenham will consider selling their star man for around £80 million.
