Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy told Real Madrid president Florentino Perez to forget about signing Christian Eriksen last week, according to a report in Spain.

Spanish media outlet El Confidencial, as quoted by Daily Mirror, is reporting that the Spurs chief met with the Real Madrid supremo in the Spanish capital on Friday night ahead of the Champions League final.

The same article states that Real Madrid are keen on signing the Denmark international to bolster Zinedine Zidane’s squad ahead of the new La Liga campaign.

According to the same story, Levy has made it clear in no uncertain terms that Eriksen isn’t available despite Tottenham previously selling Luka Modric and Gareth Bale to the Spanish outfit.

Eriksen has emerged as one of Tottenham’s key players alongside Harry Kane and Dele Alli over the past few seasons in north London.

The Denmark international scored eight goals and made 12 assists in 35 games in the Premier League last term as Spurs finished in fourth spot.

Eriksen contributed two goals and four assists in 12 games in the Champions League as Spurs reached the final before a 2-0 loss to Liverpool FC in Madrid.

The Denmark midfielder scored 66 times in 276 games in all competition over the past six seasons at the north London club.
