Cape Town - Bayern Munich have reportedly joined Real Madrid in the race
to clinch the services of Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen in the January
Eriksen, 27, signed for Spurs in 2013 and has been one of
the first names on the team sheet for the past six seasons, but was heavily
linked with a move away during the summer transfer window.
Real Madrid showed more than a passing interest in the Denmark
international and it seemed as though he might be on his way to the Bernabeu.
However, he remained at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and
has scored one goal from eight Premier League appearances in 2019-20.
However, rumours of discontent behind the scenes in north
London will not go away, with Spurs' performances appearing to suggest that all
is not well, and it may be that Eriksen has set his heart on a move.
Whether Real come back in for the talented schemer only time
will tell but, according to Sport1, the Bavarians are now considering a bid of
their own in January.
The former Ajax ace's contract is up next summer, and he
will be able to negotiate with other clubs in the new year.
That means Spurs will be under pressure to sell or risk
losing the Dane for nothing – not a viable prospect given his market value.
Bayern are looking for midfielders after losing Arjen Robben
and Franck Ribery and it may be that Eriksen fits the bill.
Manchester United have also been linked in the past although
reports claim the Scandinavian is not interested in a move to Old Trafford.
