Tottenham Hotspur chief Daniel Levy has slapped a big transfer fee on one of his most prized assets in a bid to ward off the interests of the best clubs on the European football scene.
Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen has been a key player for the North London giants since he moved to White Hart Lane from Dutch Eredivisie club Ajax Amsterdam.
His form for Tottenham Hotspur has led to the interests of European heavyweights such as Champions League holders Real Madrid and fellow Premier League side Manchester United.
His long-term future of the Danish international at Tottenham Hotspur has been up for discussion in the past few weeks after he rejected several offers of a contract extension at the club.
Christian Eriksen was recently part of the Denmark squad that reached the round of 16 before the Europeans were eliminated by surprise finalists and fellow Europeans Croatia.
Eriksen and Denmark were beaten on penalties in their last 16 clashes with the Croatians.
His next transfer destination could be either Real Madrid or Manchester United.
According to the Spanish newspaper AS, Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has put a £225m transfer fee on the player to ward off the interests of the aforementioned interested clubs.
