Tottenham's Christian Eriksen 'better than any Real Madrid or FC Barcelona midfielder'

Posted: 20 March 2018 Time: 16:00

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen who's been described as 'better than Luka Modrić' has been tipped to make a move to Real Madrid or FC Barcelona.

Eriksen, 26, has been one of the standout performers in the Premier League since arriving from Ajax in 2013 for a cut-price £11m (R183m) fee - as Spurs looked to rebuild the squad following the sale of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid.

Featuring all across midfield, the Dane has displayed incredible versatility along with his undoubted ability to dictate the tempo of the game which comes as no mean feat in a league as physical as the English top-flight.

And his national team coach Age Hareide, claims he would walk into the starting XI of Europe's elite based on his current level of performances.

"I think he is a type that can adapt to anything," he told Ritzau. "Give him a ball, then the ball will speak for him wherever he is. Christian is a type that just gets better from dealing with better football players.

"When looking at the players that play centrally for Real Madrid and Barcelona, none of them are better than Christian.

"Luka Modric came from Tottenham to Real Madrid, and he was not as good as Christian."

Eriksen has scored 11 goals and registered 10 assists in 38 games across all competitions this season.
