Ronaldo wants this Tottenham star at Real Madrid (not Kane or Alli) - report
By Guy Giles
Cristiano Ronaldo was left in awe by the performance of Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen during Los Blancos’ 3-1 humbling at Wembley on Wednesday night, and wants to bring the Dane to the Santiago Bernabeu, according to a report.
Spanish outlet Don Balon claim that Ronaldo wants chairman Florentino Perez to move for the midfielder and fill the gap left in Real’s midfield by the departure of James Rodriguez.
Spurs dominated the game against the two-time defending champions, securing qualification for the knockout stages with their first ever win over Madrid.
There were dazzling performances all over the pitch for Tottenham, including a starring role for Dele Alli as he bagged a brace, but it was Eriksen who left Ronaldo wanting more.
The report claims Ronaldo thinks the Dane would fit perfectly into Real’s midfield, and help to provide both competition and rest for the overworked Luka Modric and Toni Kroos, with Zinedine Zidane unsure over the quality of new signing Dani Ceballos.
