Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has demanded two big signings this summer, according to El Confidencial.
The three-time Champions League winner will set out on rebuilding the team following his return to the Santiago Bernabeu.
The club’s president Florentino Perez is ready to back the French manager by bringing his two choices to the Spanish capital.
Zidane wants to sign Eriksen and Ndombele
According to El Confidencial, Zidane has demanded the signing of Christian Eriksen from Tottenham Hotspur.
The Danish international has rejected several contract offers from Spurs.
The Tottenham midfielder looks destined to leave the club with his contract set to expire in 2020.
Spurs may opt to sell the player this summer in order to avoid losing him for nothing when his deal runs out.
A defensive midfielder is another target for Zidane with N’Golo Kante is his primary choice.
However, along with Paul Pogba, both players are unrealistic additions and Ndombele looks set to be the man targeted.
The 22-year-old has been very impressive for Olympique Lyonnais this season which could earn him a big move elsewhere.
Eriksen provides contract update
The 27-year-old has been speaking about his contract situation with Tottenham and why he has not yet agreed a new deal.
Eriksen told B.T:
“The Premier League clubs are starting very early to get players to sign new contracts.
“Therefore, my situation is unnatural.
“Two years is still a long time when you think of a football career, but in England it is normal to write a five-six-year agreement. That’s why my situation is different.
“The speculation about my future does not affect me.
I don’t care about that completely. It’s newspaper news. It has been running ever since, I was 14 years old and was in trial at Chelsea.
“There are newspapers that write it.”
