This is according to Spanish outlet Don Balon, who suggest the Denmark international would cost a whopping £166million as La Liga’s giants eye him up.

Eriksen has been one of the best creative midfield players in Europe in the last few years with some stellar displays for Spurs, and it’s clear he’d be a perfect fit for a big club like Real or Barca.

However, it seems the player himself is dead set on the prospect of replacing Andres Iniesta at the Nou Camp after the legendary playmaker’s departure this summer.

Don Balon report that Eriksen is very serious about getting a move, in what would be a huge blow for Tottenham next season.
