Real & Inter 'in talks' over mega swap deal


Real Madrid and Inter Milan are reportedly plotting a mega swap deal involving Isco and Christian Eriksen.

Both Isco and Eriksen, who are regarded as being among the world's best midfielders, have fallen out of favour at their respective clubs this season, and have been linked with exits in the upcoming January transfer window as a result.

With speculation surrounding the duo's future mounting, Sky Germany has now claimed that Los Blancos and the Nerazzurri are considering a swap deal that would see the Spaniard move to Italy, with the Dane heading in the opposite direction.

It is reported that the proposed deal would be a straight, player-for-player deal, although Real are said to be holding out for a co-payment for Isco, who currently carries a higher market value than Eriksen.

The reigning LaLiga champions value the Spain international at about €70 million (R1.2 billion), whereas Inter signed the Denmark star from Tottenham Hotspur for €30 million (R547 million) midway through last season. 

Real and Inter are said to have already opened talks about a possible transaction, although negotiations are still ongoing.
