Real Madrid plan to enter negotiations with Tottenham over the signing of Christian Eriksen in the winter transfer window.
The Danish midfielder appears once again in Los Blancos' transfer agenda and the LaLiga Santander club don't want to let the opportunity slip away once again.
Zinedine Zidane insisted on signing Paul Pogba from Manchester United in the summer, but the Red Devils were not willing to negotiate their midfielder's departure.
Meanwhile, Spurs made a final attempt to renew Eriksen's contract, but the Denmark international has made clear that he wants to leave the club by next July, when his contract comes to an end.
As MARCA has learned, the Premier League side's chairman Daniel Levy has ordered people he trusts to search for an adequate offer to sell the 27-year-old midfielder.
Los Blancos will wait until January 1, 2020, before negotiating a possible agreement with the player, as they don't want to cross legal lines, but they aren't ruling out making an offer to Tottenham before the next calendar year starts.
Tottenham know that the player could walk away for free next summer and are keen to bring in something for him.
The Real Madrid board are aware that the team needs to be reinforced in January, as they consider there to be a lack of energy, speed and power in the middle third.
Although Eriksen doesn't tick all the boxes, his technique, first touch and passing accuracy can give a boost to the team's midfield.
Zidane didn't give the thumbs up for the player's signing in summer, but members of the Real Madrid board insist that the club should not let the opportunity slip away once again.
