Transfer: EPL club ready to double midfielder’s wages to snub Real Madrid

Tottenham are desperate to keep Christian Eriksen at the club beyond this summer, with Real Madrid keen on the player, the Daily Mail reports.

Spurs have renewed their efforts to persuade Eriksen, by offering him a new contract that will more than double his current £4million salary.

The club have so far failed to convince the Denmark international, who has entered the final 12 months of his deal, to pen a new contract.

The midfielder earns in the region of £80,000 a week. But Tottenham have already offered to double his money with a deal worth around £160,000 a week.

The entire package could push Eriksen’s wage closer to £200,000 a week.

However, the player’s advisers have informed Tottenham officials, that the 27-year-old’s next contract will not be motivated by money.
