Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen has said he would like to take on a new challenge this season following Saturday's Champions League final loss to Liverpool.
The Danish international, who has just 12 months left on his contract, says a move to Real Madrid would his ideal destination.
"I feel that I am at a stage of my career where I would like to try something new," he told the Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet.
"I have the deepest respect for everything that is happening at Tottenham and it would not be something negative to stay. But I have also said that I would like to try something new. "
In that sense, Eriksen added that Real Madrid would be "a step up" but he said, as far as he knows, they "haven't picked up the phone and made contact with Tottenham."
However, he says if no club comes in for him or if Spurs chairman Daniel Levy demands too much money, he wouldn't be disappointed if he had to remain in London.
He added: "If there are no exciting offers why shouldn’t I stay at Tottenham? If I then sign a new contract depends on the conditions."
