Christian Eriksen’s agent refused to comment on reports linking his client to Real Madrid.

Upon completing a €12.45m transfer from Ajax in the summer of 2013, Eriksen has established himself as an integral member of the Tottenham squad with manager Mauricio Pochettino keen to tie him down to a new long-term contract.

The 27-year-old is understood to have attracted the interest of Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona following his exploits in the Premier League.

Not helping matters for Spurs is the fact that Eriksen will be out of contract in June 2020 and has yet to reach an agreement with the club over an extension.

Now the latest reports indicate that Zinedine Zidane is allegedly keen on signing the Danish playmaker after making his return to Real on Monday.

The Frenchman will be given a big budget this summer to go on a spending spree during the upcoming transfer window as Real look to bounce back from what has been a disastrous season by their high standards.

But Eriksen’s agent, Martin Schoots, would not get involved in the speculation and insisted that his client’s sole focus lies only on matters on the pitch.

“I don’t want to add to the speculation around Christian’s contract and football future. Christian is only focusing on the football,” Schoots told Ekstra Bladet.

“He has evolved from a world-class talent into a world-class player.”

Eriksen has managed seven goals and 12 assists in 38 appearances across all competitions for Spurs this season.

Pochettino’s side will certainty need Eriksen’s focus to be on the field right now with local rivals Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea all breathing down their necks in the Premier League table.

Incidentally, it’s not the first time that Real have raided Spurs after signing future Ballon d’Or winner Luka Modric in 2012 and Gareth Bale a year later.
