According to Marca, Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has told the agent of Christian Eriksen that he will sell the attacking midfielder in the January transfer window.

The player is aware he is in full control of his future next summer and Tottenham want to avoid that situation at all costs.

But Real would be able to tie him down to a contract and Spurs would be able to make some money on the Dane, who has 90 caps with 29 goals and 22 assists for his country.

Eriksen has been one of the most consistent creative midfielders in the Premier League over the last few seasons, and would fit very well in Real Madrid's style of play.

The Spanish giants were keen to bolster their midfield options throughout the summer and were linked with both players, however, manager Zinedine Zidane's preference was always believed to be a deal for compatriot Pogba.

The Tottenham Hotspur midfielder was widely tipped for a move to the Bernabéu in the summer but Zinedine Zidane's preference to hold out for Paul Pogba - a move which never materialised - saw the Danish global miss out.

Eriksen, who hinted at a Spurs exit in the summer, is in the final year of his contract.

The Denmark worldwide has reportedly rejected several offers of a new deal from Spurs, and was hoping to move to a bigger club for a "new challenge" during the summer.

Eriksen clearly believes that a move away from Tottenham is going to be best for the development of his career, but even with that being the case, this potential deal is still far from happening.
