Real Madrid have reportedly been quoted a fee of €250 million (£222.7 million) by Tottenham Hotspur for midfielder Christian Eriksen.
According to Marca, Los Blancos are eager to freshen up their ageing spine, and Eriksen is viewed at the Santiago Bernabeu as the “the ideal candidate” to succeed 33-year-old Luka Modric.
Real are one of the richest clubs in the world, but it would be no surprise if they balked at Tottenham’s valuation.
Eriksen is a fantastic player and, at 26, is reaching the prime years of his career.
But he has won no silverware in his five previous seasons at Spurs and has less than two years left on his contract, which expires in June 2020.
