CHRISTIAN ERIKSEN will reportedly rejected every offer Spurs place on the table – to force through a move to Spain.
The Tottenham playmaker, 27, is out of contract at the end of the season.
And after the Champions League final, he admitted he was ready for a new challenge.
Spurs could not convince him to extend his deal this summer nor were they able to sell him, with Real Madrid pursuing other options in midfield.
And now reports in Spain suggest his agent is in contact with the 13-time European champions.
It is thought the Bernabeu club have spoken to the player but are yet to submit a formal bid.
Real were linked with a move in the summer transfer window.
But they prioritised the pursuit of other targets instead, with Eden Hazard, Luka Jovic and Ferland Mendy coming in.
Paul Pogba was also linked with a move but a deal could not be agreed with Manchester United – who may have turned to Eriksen as the Frenchman’s replacement.
Latest transfer news
The Danish international will be able to arrange a pre-contract agreement in January to join the likes of Real Madrid or Barcelona for free when his contract expires in North London.
Eriksen moved to Spurs from Ajax in 2013 and has been a key player for them over the last six years.
His 50 goals and 60 assists in 211 Premier League appearances prove his worth to them, helping to establish themselves in the Champions League consistently.
