Chelsea to battle Real Madrid in interest for Tottenham star


English Premier League outfit Chelsea are reported to be ready to battle Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid over the signature of Tottenham star Christian Eriksen.

Christian Eriksen has been fantastic for the North London side which is the reason why he has been attracting a number of big clubs.

The Spanish outfit had indicated interest in the star player over the past weeks with reports that they are already preparing a bid that would be submitted to the Premier League side.

Christian Eriksen joined the Merseyside club in 2013 from Ajax and has since become one of Premier League most impressive player.

So far, Christian Eriksen has got his contract running with the North London side until 2020 but manager Mauricio Pochettino is not ready to force a decision on the player but will rather let him make the decision best for him.

Meanwhile, the Blues are already preparing to part ways with Belgium international Eden Hazard who is on his way to Real Madrid and Christian Eriksen could just be the perfect replacement for him.

Reports claim that the West London side will be ready to break the bank to land Christian Eriksen so as to add more depth to the already existing and robust midfield.
