Real Madrid still considering signing of Christian Eriksen

It looks like the midfielder won’t play much for Tottenham if he’s determined to leave the club.

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen will be free to negotiate a deal with any club in just one month and it looks like Real Madrid are still exploring the possibility of signing the Danish player, according to a report from MARCA. Los Blancos could also be interested in paying a small, very affordable fee so that Eriksen could join them during the winter transfer window instead of waiting until summer, per that same report.

Fabian Ruiz and Donny Van de Beek are also in Real’s transfer list for next summer. Los Blancos need depth and will need to sign a midfielder some time soon.

While Real Madrid are in no urgency to sign Eriksen after the last performances from Fede Valverde, it’s also clear that the midfielder is indeed a good opportunity for Madrid to sign a quality player for a small fee. Eriksen would be a great long term replacement for Luka Modric while also adding some needed depth for the current midfield line.

Dani Ceballos will be back in the club after his loan deal in Arsenal next summer, but if Zinedine Zidane stays as Real Madrid’s coach the club might be forced to just part ways with the Spanish midfielder, as tough as that may seem for a player with his potential.

All in all, Eriksen is still 27 years old and is just hitting his prime as a player. He might not be the kind of midfielder Real Madrid need right now, but he might be the kind of opportunity Los Blancos can’t let pass.
