Spanish giants Real Madrid are planning to launch a bid to sign Tottenham Hotspur playmaker Christian Eriksen for £100 million this summer and have already made initial contact about this, according to reports.

Madrid are planning a major clear-out of their squad in the summer, after a poor season by their standards in La Liga, and a playmaker is one of their top targets with Eriksen, along with Chelsea’s Eden Hazard, is at the top of their list.

Eriksen’s contract with Spurs runs until 2020, and he is in talks over a new deal – which more than double his current £70,000-per-week wages – but the club appear happy to let him enter the final year of his deal before signing.

But Eriksen’s contract situation will have been noted by Madrid bosses, who may tempt both player and club with a deal in the summer. Madrid bosses feel they may be able to do a deal for £100 million for Eriksen, although it is well known that Spurs’ chairman Daniel Levy drives a hard bargain, so any fee could be higher. There has already been contact between intermediaries for both parties, according to The Independent.

With a clear-out planned at the Bernabeu, Madrid could offer a player as part of the deal, with out-of-favour forward Isco a likely candidate for that.

It is believed that Eriksen is happy at Spurs but, at 26, he is in the prime of his career and may feel the time is right to try a new footballing culture – and the lure of one of the giants of European football may prove too tempting.

Italian giants are weighing up bidding for Tottenham Hotspur star Mousa Dembele, according to reports in Italy. 

Dembele, 31, has been a key player for Spurs But is out of contract at the end of the season and has so far rejected every offer of a new deal.

Calciomercato reports that Dembele is waiting to see what offers come in for him from the Italian side before deciding his next move.

The Belgium international looks set to leave Spurs in the summer, and will go on a free transfer.

There is also reportedly interest in him from other clubs in Europe and China.

Spurs may try to sell him in January rather than let him go for nothing in the summer, but of course they wouldn’t get market value for him as clubs could easily wait until the summer.

Real Madrid target £200 million January swoop for Tottenham striker Harry Kane

Champions League winners Real Madrid are plotting a £200 million move for Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane in January, according to reports in Spain. 

Kane has proved to be a consistent goal scorer for club and country in recent seasons and winning the Golden Boot at the World Cup in Russia has only enhanced his reputation.

Spanish site El Confidencial has reported that Madrid president Florentino Perez has made Kane his number on target in January.

Los Blancos are looking for a marquee signing, having not replaced Cristiano Ronaldo, who left for Juventus for £99 million last summer. The club are also struggling to score goals at the moment – they haven’t found the net in their past 4 matches.

Kane could also be an option if Spurs are knocked out of the Champions League at the group stage. New UEFA rules mean that if he were to join Madrid after Spurs had been knocked out, he would be eligible to play rather than being cup-tied, as he would have been previously.

If Madrid were to make a bid for Kane, it would likely take a world record offer for Spurs chairman Daniel Levy to even consider selling him.

Levy is a renowned tough negotiator and would only take top dollar.

In addition, Kane is known to want to play at Spurs’ new stadium, so may not want to move – in January at least.

Paris St-Germain hopeful of tying up deal for Tottenham star Danny Rose

French champions Paris St-Germain are hoping to tie up a loan or permanent deal for Tottenham Hotspur left-back before the transfer window closes next week – but any deal hinges on the outcome of a UEFA enquiry.

Spurs are open to doing a deal with PSG, but the French club could face significant transfer sanctions if UEFA’s enquiry into alleged breaches of Financial Fair Play rules goes against them.

It could mean PSG are forced into selling one of their stars – probably Neymar or Kylian Mbappe – but the outcome of the case won’t come out until next week.

England international Rose has fallen down the pecking order at Spurs, with Ben Davies now the established first choice left-back so Spurs could be tempted to sell.

Rose may also be open to a move to ensure he stays in the reckoning for England.

A potential move for Rose to Bundesliga side Schalke fell through earlier in the summer.
