Eriksen not interested in Juventus move with Real Madrid in mind
- Eriksen reportedly continues to push for a move despite not getting the transfer in the summer.
- The Bernabeu has long been identified as his preferred destination.
- However, other clubs like Juventus are said to be thinking about offering him a contract.
Juventus want to sign Tottenham's Christian Eriksen for free next summer, according to Tuttosport. However, the Dane doesn't fancy a move to Italy and will instead look for a way to joining Real Madrid or Paris Saint-Germain as a last resort.
As a reminder, players that have less than six months left of contract can start talks with clubs already in January. It is believed that Los Blancos might finally make a move for the Danish international. Moreover, Manchester United will reportedly try to sign Eriksen in January at cut-price. Considering that Spurs risk losing their star for free, they might agree to a deal.
Spurs are ready to offer Christian a new contract but the player has rejected all offers so far. They would even be ready to offer him a €6m-per-season salary, making him the second-best-paid player at the club. Only Harry Kane, with €8,8m, currently earns more.
Juventus have made signing free agents part of their business plan over the years. This season's crop included midfielders Adrien Rabiot and Aaron Ramsey and it doesn't look like they're done on that market as they continue to be linked with every high-profile player whose contract is winding down.
Eriksen has been Real Madrid's plan B this summer but Zinedine Zidane's reported desire to bring in Paul Pogba blocked the move. However, the Frenchman ended up staying at Old Trafford and new reports emerge that the Red Devils might actually offer him a new contract and are set to open talks with Mino Raiola.
