Real Madrid battle Barcelona to land Christian Eriksen

Tottenham & Christian Eriksen

For the second day running Tottenham fans will be worrying about Christian Eriksen’s future.

Eriksen is under contract at Tottenham until 2020. While trying to sign one of Daniel Levy’s top assets is always incredibly tough.

Yet, according to the Spanish press both Barcelona and Real Madrid are interested in the Danish international this summer.

Barcelona’s Andres Iniesta replacement

On Tuesday, Sport claimed that Barcelona would like to sign Eriksen.

Sport claimed that Barca are incredibly concerned about the departure of Andres Iniesta, as they told their readers that the club’s midfield options have been “drained”.

Of course, Barcelona signed Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool back in January.

Most understood that Coutinho was bought to be Barcelona’s long term replacement for Iniesta.

But could that role be handed to Tottenham’s Eriksen instead?

Sport made the point that Coutinho could be deployed in a front three alongside Leo Messi and Luis Suarez next term. That could open up a spot in Barcelona’s midfield for Eriksen to fill.

Real Madrid’s Luke Modric successor

On Wednesday it’s the turn of Marca to splash Tottenham’s Eriksen on their front page.

Marca announce that Eriksen is on Real Madrid’s summer shopping list.

Eriksen is viewed at the Santiago Bernabeu as a possible successor to Luka Modric. Modric will be 33 in September.

Of course, Modric joined Real Madrid from Tottenham. While Gareth Bale also made the move from Spurs to Madrid previously.

Indeed, according to Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, Daniel Levy often reminds him of how those deals helped Real Madrid in recent seasons.
