Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen is set to join Real Madrid after the Champions League final, according to reports in Spain.
The 27-year-old joined Spurs from Ajax in 2013 and has established himself as one of the world’s best midfielders during his stay in north London.
The Denmark international is set to enter the final year of his contract at Spurs and has so far refused to commit to a new deal.
Earlier this month, AS reported that the Demark midfielder had already reached a verbal agreement to join Madrid this summer.
And now, Jaime Astrain of El Chiringuito claims that both a transfer fee and personal terms have been agreed, with an official announcement to be made after the Champions League final.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side face Liverpool in the European showpiece in Madrid on June 1 with the club looking to win their first silverware under the Argentine manager.
Eriksen has made 11 appearances during Spurs’ route to the final, scoring goals in both of the club’s games against Inter Milan in the group stages.
He also helped the club book a place in next year’s competition, finding the net eight times and registering 12 assists as Tottenham finished fourth in the Premier League.
Eriksen’s ability in the middle of the park has reportedly caught the eye of Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane as he looks to add more creativity to his squad.
The Frenchman is expected to oversee drastic changes to his team this summer after a difficult season for Los Blancos.
The Spanish giants finished third in La Liga – behind Barcelona and local rivals Atletico – and were defeated in the last 16 of the Champions League after winning lifting the trophy the previous three years.
Madrid have also been linked with moves for Chelsea’s Eden Hazard and Paul Pogba, while the club are expected to complete a £52.4million deal for Frankfurt striker Luka Jovic.
