Daniel Levy is unperturbed that Tottenham superstar Christian Eriksen has reportedly agreed personal terms with Real Madrid, Football Insider understands.
Spanish publication AS claimed on Wednesday that the Denmark international has reached a verbal agreement to join the European champions in this summer’s window.
This has sparked concern among Spurs fans that the club have lost their battle to keep hold of Eriksen, who enters the final 12 months of his contract in June and has failed to agree an extension.
In the Tottenham boardroom, there is no hint of panic at the possibility of losing a player who has been an integral member of the side since joining from Ajax in 2013.
A club source has told Football Insider that chairman Levy is well aware of Real’s interest in Eriksen but is unconcerned at reports the player has a verbal agreement to join them.
As far as the long-standing Spurs chief is concerned, the Spanish giants must meet his asking price if they are to prise the Dane from White Hart Lane this summer and, unless they do so, he won’t be leaving.
As revealed by Football Insider last month, Levy intends to make it as difficult as possible for Eriksen to quit north London this summer by sticking to his £140million valuation of the player.
The White Hart Lane hierarchy are keen to return to the negotiating table with Eriksen to discuss a long-term deal.
