Christian Eriksen verbally agrees Real Madrid move

Tottenham star Christian Eriksen agrees term with Real Madrid?

Bengaluru, May 2: Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen has verbally agreed a deal to join Real Madrid this summer, according to reports in England.

The Tottenham star's future in North London has been left in the dark since the Dane decided against signing a new contract.

His current deal expires next summer meaning Spurs will need to cash in now or risk losing him for nothing in 12 months time.

According to reports, Real Madrid will need to stump up around £130million to lure him to the Bernabeu.

Half the work is already complete with Eriksen reportedly agreeing to join Zinedine Zidane's side at the end of the season.

Now they just need to negotiate with the notoriously astute Spurs chairman Daniel Levy to cash in on their key asset.

Madrid do have transfer history with Spurs after landing both Luka Modric and Gareth Bale in previous high-profile deals.

But this transfer could prove more difficult after Real Madrid angered Levy with their approach for manager Mauricio Pochettino.

Los Blancos wanted to hold talks with the Argentine coach following the sacking of Santiago Solari earlier in the campaign before the appointment of Zidane.

Eriksen's form has been instrumental for Tottenham this season with nine goals and 16 assists across the league and Champions League.

But he failed to put his stamp on the contest in the first leg of the Champions League semi final as his side crashed to a 1-0 home defeat at Ajax.

And it appears Real Madrid fans were far from impressed with his performance with some even demanding the club look elsewhere in the summer on the social media.

Eriksen is also wanted by Manchester United as the Red Devils plan a major overhaul of their squad but the Dane is unlikely to consider the option unless they qualify for the Champions League next campaign.
