Daniel Levy offers Real Madrid Christian Eriksen
According to Spanish paper Marca, Tottenham dealmaker Daniel Levy has offered Real Madrid the chance to sign Christian Eriksen.
The way Marca tell the story, Levy has called up Real Madrid director general Jose Angel Sanchez to offer the Dane to Los Blancos.
So why would Tottenham do that?
Marca claim that Eriksen, who is out of contract in 2020, is refusing to sign a new deal with Spurs.
Facing the prospect of Eriksen leaving the club in twelve months as a free agent, Levy has decided to sell the playmaker now.

In another key piece of information reported by Marca, Eriksen’s price tag appears to be falling sharply. Readers are told:
While Tottenham wanted 150 million euros for the player in the summer of 2018, now their objective is to bring in at least 70m euros.

Real Madrid say ‘no’
But the story ends badly for Tottenham and Daniel Levy.
Painting the Spurs powerbroker out to be in a weak position, Marca reveal:
Real Madrid aren’t currently planning to accept the offer, but that could change if they fail to land Paul Pogba or Donny van de Beek.
