According to Don Balon, Florentino Perez is weighing up such a deal, which would undoubtedly be one of the big stories of the summer.

Eriksen has shone at Tottenham and seems an ideal long-term replacement for Luka Modric at Real Madrid in that creative midfield role.

This would spell bad news for Manchester United, however, who have been strongly linked with Bale in recent times as he recently dropped a hint he could quit the Bernabeu ahead of next season.

This came as the Welshman spoke to BT Sport after his decisive role in the Champions League final, and with the Daily Mirror reporting the £100million-rated winger is keen to move to the Premier League.

However, it may be that Bale will end up back at Spurs in this surprise exchange, with the 28-year-old attacker having previously enjoyed probably the form of his career in north London.
