Goal: Tottenham 'increasingly confident' over new long-term deal for Madrid-bound Eriksen
- Christian Eriksen contract at Tottenham runs out in 2020.
- Real Madrid reportedly view the Dane as a replacement for ageing Modric.
- The Spurs, however, remain confident the 27-year-old will commit his long-term future to the club soon.
Despite recent reports in the Spanish press over Tottenham's lack of funds to secure Christian Eriksen's future at North London for years to come, the Spurs chiefs are 'increasingly confident' that the Dane will agree a new-long term deal soon, with talks between both sides ongoing, according to Goal.
Nevertheless, the 27-year-old is yet to extend his £80,000-a-week deal with the Spurs which runs out in the summer of 2020. Eriksen's uncertainty over a contract extension has attracted the interest of Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester United.

Zinedine Zidane is a big admirer of the Dane and views him as a replacement for Luka Modric. Moreover, Eriksen's move to Old Trafford could be complicated by Spurs chairman Daniel Levy who would be reluctant to reinforcing their Premier League rivals.
Even though Eriksen enters final 12 months on his contract in June, Madrid would've to pay around £95 million for his services. This season so far, the 27-year-old has scored eight goals and delivered 16 assists for Tottenham in all competitions.
