Real Madrid are prepared to play a waiting game in their pursuit of Christian Eriksen by submitting a take it or leave it £60m offer to Spurs on the eve of the summer transfer deadline.

Eriksen, 27, has been linked with a move to Real Madrid throughout the summer after declaring in June that he was keen to ‘try something new’ following six seasons with Spurs.

The La Liga giants have been tracking the Denmark international since the end of last year after it became clear he was reluctant to sign a new contract at Spurs with his deal set to expire in 2020.

Zinedine Zidane had prioritised the signing of Manchester United’s Paul Pogba over Eriksen this summer, however, with the Frenchman set to stay at Old Trafford a move for the Spurs man is back on.

According to the Sun, Real are playing a waiting game over a potential Eriksen deal in order to force Spurs chairman Daniel Levy’s hand by making an offer shortly before the transfer window shuts.

Although the English transfer window ended on August 8, clubs across Europe have until September 2 to make any new signings meaning Eriksen could still depart north London despite featuring in Spurs’ first two Premier League games.

Spurs have tried to get Eriksen to commit to a new contract and offered him a deal worth double his current £80,000 per week salary but he has refused to sign amid interest from Real Madrid.

Real Madrid have also been linked with a move for Ajax star Donny Van De Beek and could sign both him and Eriksen for less than money than Pogba would have cost on his own.

Eriksen came on as a substitute during Spurs’ first game of the season against Aston Villa before playing the full 90 minutes in Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Manchester City.
