Tottenham offer Christian Eriksen to Atletico Madrid amid Man Utd and Real Madrid links | Football | Sport
Eriksen revealed at the end of the season that he was ready for a new challenge.
But efforts to sell the midfielder – whose contract runs out next year – haven’t proved fruitful so far.
Tottenham sent staff to speaking to Atletico’s CEO Miguel Angel Gil to discuss a deal for Eriksen.
The transfer would cost between £54m (€60m) and £63m (€70m).
Although the midfielder would likely be valued a lot higher than that, his looming contract deadline has forced Spurs’ hand into lowering their asking price.
Atletico haven’t finished spending this summer, despite buying starlet Joao Felix for £110m earlier this month.
The former Ajax star hinted that he wanted to leave north London after spending six years in the Premier League.
“I feel that I am a place in my career where I might want to try something new,” Eriksen told Ekstra Bladet.
“I have the wildest and deepest respect for everything that has happened at Tottenham – I will not be negative.
“But I have also said that I would like to try something new.
“I hope there will be a resolution during the summer. That’s the plan.
“In football you do not know when a resolution will happen.
“It can happen anytime. Everyone wants the best to it to happen as soon as possible, but in football takes things time.”
