Christian Eriksen may be granted an exit from Tottenham this summer if a club are willing to pay £86m for his signature. Real Madrid submitted a bid of Dani Ceballos + £45m which was considerably below Spurs’ valuation, but an offer containing James Rodriguez, Martin Odegaard and £33m may be better received.

James is surplus to requirements at Real and is valued at around £36m – he earns £100k-per-week. Odegaard could also be on the move this summer and has a £17m asking price. That would leave £33m left to make it to £86m, so a cash offer could sweeten the deal. Whether Real consider lodging this bid remains to be seen, but it would be perfect for Tottenham.

The Londoners would be replacing Eriksen with a creative No.10 who can score goals. They’d also be adding an in-form wide-man to the squad in Odegaard, greatly improving their attacking options. Having the Real Madrid duo and £33m more to spend in the transfer market would be a dream come true, but Daniel Levy can’t afford to get too greedy.

The 27-year-old can leave for nothing next year, so Spurs have to be negotiable.

  • Far better to focus on getting the players Poch wants rather than what Real want to palm us off with to get the player they supposedly want

    i like Rodriguez but I’m not convinced he would really be strong enough for the PL and that’s not about size but temperament

    I’d be happy enough with Isco in exchange and I’m pretty sure Poch would be too but I have to think that has already been raised if there has been any talk between the clubs, so a non starter

    In that case better we get cash to use for Poch’s preference, whoever that may be, so many rumours but too little substance in any of them to know who he is seriously interested in

  • I think Rodriguez would do well in the PL in fact both those players would, they’re just not for us. The only player from Real that would help to take us to the next level is Isco and as Bazza said i’m sure it’s been put to them but if they really do want Eriksen and can only do a player plus cash deal then it has to be a player we want not one they don’t.

  • M. Ødegaard is 7 years younger and already projected ahead of Eriksen. Flo. Perez said future star of Real Madrid – they will never include him in such a deal and lose 7 years in a world/wonderkid talented player like Martin Ødegaard.

    He will go on a loan with either Real Socidad or A.C Milan since P. Maldini is visiting Madrid yesterday.
    So this rumor have no connection with reality.
