Christian Eriksen is considering moves to Manchester United or Juventus, after Real Madrid cooled their interest in the Tottenham star.
The Danish international has entered the final year of his contract and is keen to quit Spurs this summer, admitting he ‘wants to try something new’, with Mauricio Pochettino’s side facing the prospect of selling the 27-year-old this summer or risk losing him for nothing in 2020.
Real Madrid had expressed an interest in signing the midfielder this summer with Eriksen reportedly keen on a move to La Liga, however the Spanish giant’s have already spent almost £300m on the likes of Eden Hazard and Luka Jovic and manager Zinedine Zidane’s preference is a move for Manchester United’s Paul Pogba.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is desperate to add quality to his squad after a disappointing season at Old Trafford. United are keen to add to their midfield options following the departure of Ander Herrera, whilst doubts remain over Pogba’s long-term future.
Juventus are also plotting an overhaul of their squad as they bid to build a side capable of Champions League success, the Italian champions having enjoyed years of domestic dominance winning eight consecutive Serie A titles.
New manager Maurizio Sarri will be targeting new additions having joined the club from Chelsea, with Ajax star Matthijs de Ligt also linked with a move to Italy.
Despite having just a year remaining on his contract, Spurs are likely to demand a fee in the region of £100m for Eriksen this summer.
