Christian Eriksen to Real Madrid is looking less likely by the minute.
While Spurs fans have been fevourishly planning who they would splash the cash on, it would appear that Tottenham may well have a funding problem.
With Eriksen valued at an estimated £80million, failing to sell the 26 year old surely swings a wrecking ball through Levy’s transfer ambitions?
French outlet L’Equipe (€) are an authorative enough source for most, and this morning’s edition is the bearer of bad news.
Translated, the Real Madrid gaffer Zidane has been less than impressed with what he saw of Eriksen in the Champions League, and ‘nor the very negative reports on his personality received lately.’
That’s some guano sandwich.
L’Equipe go on to make a case for Manchester United’s Paul Pogba being the preferred alternative, which contradicts Le10sport’s recent piece, suggesting that Pogba wanted too much money.
The allegations about performance and attitude are difficult to protest. The Dane and Dele Alli pretty much competed with each other in the final to see who could deliver the least memorable performance.
