With Tottenham Hotspur’s summer transfer rumour mill being largely endless when it comes to reported speculation about Real Madrid’s interest in Christian Eriksen, it is very much a case of every day brings a new claim or simply a complete rehash.
Having covered the speculation on here previously about swap deals with Gareth Bale or Luka Modric as a way through the deal, it’s certainly not the only novel suggestion that the rumour mill has come up with.
Back in May it was suggested that Dani Ceballos could be an option, and a recent claim from the Sun suggests they’ve finally caught up with this angle as they’ve claimed Real are preparing a £45million cash bid plus player swap.
I’m not quite sure how they’d know, but you don’t really put the Sun and accuracy in the same sentence do you?
With the story gaining some traction on social media, whilst some used it as another predictable reason to bash Daniel Levy, others thought that despite the presumed low price, there was merit in the suggestion.
Levy about to counter it with 70M plus Bale.

I’d take 60 mill plus ceballos plus bale loan

Eriksen realistically worth Coutinho money, so this means their valuation of Ceballos is between £50-60m ????.

£45m is an insult, even if the deal includes ceballos

Asensio or Isco in a straight swap for Eriksen would be alright. Haha

I’d take that

Rather have Isco!

Bite their hand off ! Effectively a £70 – 80 million deal. He wouldn't be our first transfer target but it would certainly add depth. Just so long as we get N'Dombele and Lo Celso as well.

I dont want real Madrid cast offs
Money or money + a decent player eg. Asensio

One year left, off ya pop son!

It’s a good deal but N’Dombelle and Le Celso have to be priority. Add Cebellos too and wow that would be a summer of signings. Seems a bit dreamland for me all 3

Works for me

Seems very reasonable if you ask me.

Make that closer to £60million given their more recent dealings in the market and I could see it becoming a deal, assuming there’s any truth to the report of course.
