REAL MADRID will make a late £60million bid for Christian Eriksen.
But the Spanish giants are waiting until the last minute to pile pressure on Tottenham chief Daniel Levy to accept a ‘take it or leave it’ offer for the Dane.

There is confidence at the Bernabeu they can snatch Eriksen just before the European transfer window shuts on September 2, especially as the playmaker has just 10 months remaining on his Tottenham deal.
The 27-year-old was earmarked early as a central-midfield target — with former Spurs ace Modric possibly being included in any deal to bring Neymar to Real from Paris Saint-Germain.
