La Liga heavyweights Real Madrid are reportedly all set to sign Christian Eriksen and Kalidou Koulibaly from Tottenham Hotspur and Napoli respectively. They are even willing to shed a hefty amount for them. They will not turn their backs if the deal demands to part ways with €220million collectively for both players together.
According to Don Balon, a Spanish media outlet, Real Madrid are willing to sign both the players in January. Although Madrid has already drafted in players like Eden Hazard, Luka Jovic Rodrygo Goes and Takefusa Kubo, they still are in search of options in the midfield and defence departments. Eriksen and Koulibaly, in this context, become important targets for them.
Eriksen has already been a crucial part of the Tottenham set up in the past few years. He even led the Tottenham team to their first European final in the previous season but ended the season second best. On the other hand, Koulibaly is one of world’s best centre-backs in the business. He was one of the key reasons why Napoli performed well in Italy especially in the past two seasons.
Despite Juventus winning the Serie A in 2017-18 and 2018-19, it was Napoli’s incredible form that grabbed more attention during the course of the season.
And now, Real Madrid manager Zidane wants to add both the players to his team so that he can help Real Madrid get back to winning ways.
