Tofting: Spurs star Eriksen suits Bayern Munich over Real Madrid

Denmark legend Stefan Tofting says Christian Eriksen would be better suited for Bayern Munich over Real Madrid.

Tofting says Eriksen's introverted personality wouldn't suit the bright lights of the Bernabeu.

"I'd rather see Christian at Bayern Munich," he told Sport 1. "For Real Madrid, he would have to sell a huge number of jerseys and he's not such a glamour boy.

"In Madrid, a powerful man sits at the calculator thinking: 'How much does Eriksen cost and how many jerseys can he sell?'

"Christian is not the big superstar, he's not big-gestured, he doesn't want to be the centre of attention, he's not a [Paul] Pogba. He's very introverted and down to earth. He lets his feet speak."

Tofting added: "For me, Christian is currently the best Danish player in the world and he's the biggest talent in Denmark since Michael Laudrup.

"Even if he does not have a good day he still plays at a high level, as he has repeatedly demonstrated at Tottenham.

"He's not free in the head right now, but if Real deals with you, it does something to a player.

"I think he should decide for Bayern, which he fits like an arse in a bucket!"
