Since Zinedine Zidane on Monday returned to the head coach-the seat of Real Madrid, has the air been the close of the rumors, which sends Danish Christian Eriksen from Tottenham to the illustrious Spanish hovedstadsklub.
the Frenchman had barely set itself to the right at its first press conference at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu stadium before the Spanish League ' La liga expert Guillem Balague had let know that Eriksen was very high on Zidanes shopping list ahead of this summer's transfervindue.
The story has since gone around the world, and has been followed by speculation about a barter, where Gareth Bale, who has fallen out of favor with both the fans and the media in Madrid - and which supposedly is very little welcome in the Zinedine Zidanes plans for the future - could return to Tottenham as part of a trade that sends Eriksen the other way.
But the plans are a hoax, if you ask Bale's agent, Jonathan Barnett.
He gave the other a rare interview to the BBC's podcast 'Football Daily', where he shook his head over the speculation.
- recently wrote a journalist, that Gareth Bale was to Tottenham for Eriksen. That Real Madrid would offer Bale 50 million. the pound (approx. 435 million. dollars - red.). which is pure nonsense. Even today, the Gareth worth much more, he says of his 30-year-old client, who in his time was brought to Spain for more than 750 million. crowns.

But regardless of whether a trade must be put together with or without Bale, so it seems still more certain that Christian Eriksen is in his last season with the Spurs.
the London club have set themselves on a future without the Danish playmaker, and according to the Daily Mail, Spurs have already started to identify potential replacements.
Here is that supposedly focus on English talents such as Aston Villa's Jack Grealish, as also Leicester James Maddison has been mentioned. But it can also not be denied that tottenham's chairman, Daniel Levy, lurking on names like James Rodriguez or Isco, which all can get profit in Madrid.
Christian Eriksen has been at Tottenham since 2013.
