Christian Eriksen of Tottenham Hotspur looks on during the Premier League match between Brighton & Hove Albion and Tottenham Hotspur at American Express Community Stadium on October 05, 2019 in Brighton, United Kingdom.
Throughout the whole summer, the Danish worldwide was being linked with a move to the Bernabéu, but in the end, Zidane's men signed another huge player on their wishlist: Eden Hazard.
Now that Hazard is a Madrid player, Real have now set their sights on the Tottenham player.
Eriksen is in the final year of his contract with Spurs and is seen as a more financially viable option for Real, particularly after United priced the LaLiga giants out of a deal for Pogba in August.
With Eriksen having shown no indication he is willing to extend his deal at the club, Spurs are likely to sanction his sale in January rather than risk losing him on a free transfer in the summer.
