Hello and welcome to the Real Madrid latest transfer news and rumours of the day! Here are the top stories of the day surrounding the Galacticos!
#3 Eriksen on Spurs contract
Christian Eriksen is currently stalling the Lilywhites’ attempts to tie him down to a new contract with the North London outfit. The Dane is yet to extend his contract which ends in the summer of 2020, making him available for a price lower than his actual worth in the summer of 2019.
As a result, he has been linked with a move out of the London club with Real Madrid being the frontrunners for him. However, according to the Dane himself, he is aware of what he wants and what the Lilywhites want and that there is “nothing” in stories linking him out of Spurs.
He then stated that his immediate future is not his current concern as he is only focused on the matters of the pitch and about winning some “battles” that he deems important.
"It's not something I'm thinking of [the speculation]. I focus on playing football, and there are many battles you have to think about and which must be won.”
The former Ajax star then reassured that there is nothing solid in the stories generated by the papers and that he only talks on the rumours made by the press if there is nothing solid in their claims.
"It is not the first time that there have been rumors, and when the newspapers write something, it is not something we are masters of, and if there is nothing concrete, then I just comment on rumours."
