Tottenham attacking midfielder Christian Eriksen has reportedly rejected a new £150k-a-week deal at the Premier League side in order to force a move to Real Madrid.
His current contract at Tottenham will expire at the end of the season which means Spurs will have to sell him in January 2020 so as not to lose the player for free.
Jose Mourinho has warned Christian Eriksen he will consider the future when deciding whether to pick him for games this season in the Premier League.
Eriksen started on the bench for Tottenham in 3-2 win over West Ham United which was Jose Mourinho's first game in charge of Spurs.
