Spurs are reportedly looking to sell Christian Eriksen during the winter transfer window despite links with Man United. However, Tottenham are said to be planning to offload Denmark international to Real Madrid instead as to avoid losing their star player on a free transfer in the summer.
Still, Red Devils have previously been linked strongly with Christian and could do with a signing like the forward to boost their struggling squad this campaign. Man United were confident they could agree on a deal sign Eriksen in a cut-price deal from Spurs this winter.
It would make sense for Tottenham to try to shift the 27-year-old attacker to Madrid instead, as they won’t want to strengthen a potential top-four rival. Danish forward has been a world-class performer during his time in the Premier League and could undoubtedly shine for a major European club like Real Madrid.
The Spanish giants, like Man United, are going through something of a rebuilding process themselves, but unlike Red Devils, are probably safer in terms of qualifying for the Champions League due to the less competitive nature of La Liga in comparison to the English top flight.
