Christian Eriksen

Christian Eriksen still wants to join Real Madrid despite Tottenham's offer of a new contract.

Recent reports suggest that Spurs (opens in new tab) have offered the Dane a new £230,000-per-week deal in a bid to persuade him to stay put.

However, Marca (opens in new tab) report that Eriksen is still keen to move to the Santiago Bernabeu having failed to seal a transfer this summer.

The former Ajax (opens in new tab) playmaker will be a free agent next June and appears to have no intention of signing fresh terms in north London.

Eriksen will be able to sign a pre-contract agreement with foreign clubs in January.

He is hopeful that Madrid (opens in new tab) will come forward with an offer, but the La Liga giants are currently waiting to see how the situation develops.
