Spurs star touted to join Los Blancos

With Zinedine Zidane reportedly looking to bolster his squad next season, Tottenham Hotspur star Christian Eriksen could be on his way to Real Madrid, according to the player's former manager.

Eriksen only has one year remaining on his contract with the North London club but there have been no indications he will extend.

The Danish midfielder has been touted as a possible replacement for Luka Modric by Spanish reports, and former Spurs manager Tim Sherwood, who coached the midfielder, feels he could end up at the Santiago Bernabeu next season.

 “I would love to see Eriksen sign a new contract and commit his future to Tottenham, but I’m not sure that he will. I think we might see Eriksen in a Real Madrid shirt next season," Sherwood told Bwin.
 
“Real Madrid are always just a phone call away from signing most players in the world because when that phone rings, it is very difficult to turn down Real Madrid.
 
“I think Real Madrid will be looking for Eriksen to replace (Luka) Modric in the heart of their midfield.
 
“Eriksen is good enough to play in any team in the world and he can play in a number of positions too, he’s that good.
"Modric was a great player when he was at Tottenham, but he has gone on to achieve unbelievable things that he probably wasn't capable of in the Premier League.
 
"You surround Eriksen with world-class players in a non-competitive league where his team has the vast majority of the possession and it is scary to think what he could do with a football.
 
"Quality technicians like Eriksen and Modric will always shine and the cream always comes to the top."
