Real Madrid's proposed deal for Christian Eriksen has cooled due to the financial demands by Tottenham Hotspur. Madrid know how difficult it is to negotiate with Daniel Levy, the Spurs chairman, and are concerned a deal won't be struck.

Tottenham are demanding €120m whereas Florentino Perez feels €75m is a fair. Eriksen has threatened to sign a new deal at the North London club if they don't make an effort to secure a move. Perez doesn't feel Eriksen is worth a fee only usually reserved for 'galaticos'.

ALTERNATIVES

Madrid's plan now is to let the move cool down and come back at a later date when Spurs feel forced to accept a lower offer. Another option is to wait another 12 months and sign him on a free transfer.

The complicated talks between Spurs and Madrid isn't something new. We've seen it before in deals for Luka Modric and Gareth Bale.

Zinedine Zidane also doesn't see Eriksen as a priority. He instead prefers Paul Pogba although any deal for him would exceed the amount demanded by Spurs for Eriksen.
