Real Madrid and their prolonged interest in Cristian Eriksen will see Los Blancos wait for the 27-year-old to become a free agent in the summer so they will be able to snap him up but there’s a twist and it is Jose Mourinho. He is now the new Tottenham Hotspur manager and with him at the helm, things may change. Possibly.
“Wales, Golf, Madrid. In that order”. This was the banner held by Gareth Bale on Wales duty after his country booked their place at Euro 2020. A clear statement that shows where his loyalty lies which will not go well with Zinedine Zidane and all at the club.

Such a development could be seen as Bale’s latest plot to force a move out of the club where he has reportedly been unhappy for a while now.
Obviously Eriksen is the one player that Real Madrid have set their eyes on as Luka Modric’s successor at the Bernabeau and in the same vein the Danish international sees a move to Spain as the next step in his career and his biggest chance at winning silverware.
With Tottenham having a new manager, it will be interesting to see if some of their best players end up leaving at the end of the season. Christian Eriksen, Jan Vertogen, and Toby Alderweireld are the prominent names that have been linked with exits in recent weeks.
Jose Mourinho will definitely try to convince some to stay at the club and It is normal that Daniel Levy would want to make the most out of the leaving parties in terms of sales and any beneficial deals.
As per Transfermarkt, Eriksen is on the last year of his contract at Tottenham. As such, the club will be desperate to get the best possible deal before he leaves on a bosman. A part exchange deal for Gareth Bale could be one worth exploring, that is if he still wants to go.
It would be a great chance for both teams to get rid of players that they don’t want and also strike an excellent deal as both sides will get world-class talents that will bolster key areas of their team.
Both highly valuable players mean a single purchase for either of them would come in at huge prices but a swap deal possibly including some little cash between both sides could perhaps see both parties get good deals.
If Bale moves to Tottenham, he will be a typical Mourinho signing. A big name with a big reputation who is proven and will perform. Jose Mourinho signed a contract till 2023 (four years) which means that he has a decent time to bring in players and challenge for silverware.
