Christian Eriksen took the first opportunity after the Champions League final to claim his desire to play for a bigger club. Most indications show that the club he was hooting for was Real Madrid. Eriksen went so far as to name-drop the Blancos but an Eriksen bid from Madrid hasn’t materialized until now.
Eriksen’s transfer to Real Madrid may involve a part player swap
No. Half a player won’t be swapped for all of Eriksen. Instead, Madrid will be offering a Real Madrid player in return for the 27 year old Christian Eriksen. In an ideal world, Tottenham would sell Christian Eriksen for more than £100 million and be on their merry way to shop for the squad.
Madrid however, have spent quiet a lot already on the likes of Hazard and may not be as chock full of cash as they were a couple of months ago. Meaning they have less money to pay for Eriksen. How do they deal with that? Well they just bring whatever cash they have and drop a player in the kitty as well. That’s Madrid’s expected Eriksen bid to convince Daniel Levy to sell.
Player swaps hardly happen these days but it’s not impossible to bundle cash and a player in return for another, bigger player.
Eriksen’s price may have tumbled due to his short contract
Christian Eriksen only has an year remaining on his deal. The likes of Madrid and Bayern love it when their targets run down the contract and come to them for nothing. This time, Real Madrid intent to pay £45 million cash for Tottenhaam’s Eriksen and club it with Dani Ceballos. Whatever he’s worth. Eriksen’s transfer will also open doors for moves involving Giovani Lo Celso or Tanguy Ndombele. So there’s incentive for everyone to conclude this deal fast.
