Tottenham demand £178M from Real Madrid for Eriksen

Tottenham are set to wreck Inter Milan's hopes of signing Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric.

Italian transfer expert Gianluca di Marzio reports the deal is hanging by a thread as Spurs are demanding £178million for potential replacement Christian Eriksen.

Real are unlikely to sanction a deal for their midfield lynchpin Modric without bringing in another star.

And after his inspirational performances for Croatia in Russia, they have yet more reason to keep the maestro.

Eriksen, 26, is a vital part of Mauricio Pochettino's side and chairman Daniel Levy is known for being a tough negotiator.

In addition, Premier League clubs are unable to buy new players so it would take a huge offer to convince Spurs to lose him.
