Real Madrid and Eriksen plus Golovin on the radar

Aleksandr -Golovin

OK, I have been in contact with my contact in Spain, the same one who kept me a step ahead of the press over Roberto Soldado a few years back.

He tells me that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is NOT wanted by Real Madrid and that nobody really knows what will happen at Real Madrid yet.

Zinidine Zidane must have been made promises to return to Real Madrid and that would have been promises over his position and the players that are brought in. Zidane wants Paul Pogba but he commands a high wage and a ludicrously high fee

President Florentino PĂ©rez has other ideas and he has Eriksen high on his list. There are top players around but Eriksen only has a year left on his contract and he will wait all summer long to see if Real Madrid are going to buy him, unless they buy and he is told he isn't wanted yet.

That doesn't mean he won't be told that he will be snapped up when he is a free agent. Even if he doesn't move this summer, there is no guarantee he will sign a new contract and if he doesn't then we can't really afford to let him run down his contract as we'd have to replace him in a year.

Tottenham have to make plans for when Eriksen does leave and one player on the radar is Russian attacking midfielder Aleksandr Golovin.

His agent, Sandor Varga, is aware of our interests and says we may return to firm up interest in his client this summer. The 22-year-old (23 in 10 days time) is wanted by Hoffenheim and is being tracked by Inter Milan and Arsenal.

He currently plays for AS Monaco in Ligue 1, the next most physical league of the big five after the Premier League. His contract there runs out in 2023.
