LaLiga: Zidane at war with Real Madrid president, Florentino Perez

LaLiga: Zidane at war with Real Madrid president, Florentino Perez

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is considering a move for Tottenham's Christian Eriksen in January, but manager Zinedine Zidane's priority remains Manchester United's Paul Pogba, according to ESPN FC sources.

But Real would be able to tie him down to a contract and Spurs would be able to make some money on the Dane, who has 90 caps with 29 goals and 22 assists for his country.

The key to the operation is making Zidane understand that Eriksen is not a short-sighted signing but a much-needed player for the squad.

Eriksen is keen to move away from Spurs and is excited by Madrid's interest, which would allow him to fight for all the game's biggest trophies. He's the reason why Real Madrid paid 100 million euros for Bale in 2013 and 40 million euros for Modric in 2012.

A few of the imperiled species include state birds such as Minnesota's common loon, New Jersey's goldfinch and California's quail. Many species, the team concluded, would likely end up moving north to find their ideal habitats.

The Tottenham Hotspur midfielder was widely tipped for a move to the Bernabéu in the summer but Zinedine Zidane's preference to hold out for Paul Pogba - a move which never materialised - saw the Danish global miss out.

With just under three months until the January transfer window opens, a move will depend on the situation of both players come the new year, as well as the form and development of Madrid's current string of midfielders.

Eriksen is in the final year of his contract with Spurs and is seen as a more financially viable option for Real, particularly after United priced the LaLiga giants out of a deal for Pogba in August.
