Zidane Back @ RM.... Impact on Spurs

Morning All

Obviously good news re Zidane back at RM, meaning most of the natural suitors for Poch are dwindling fast (assuming OGS gets the United Job. Given the situation with Eriksen just thought it was interesting that most of us thought that Isco would be our number one choice if Eriksen were to leave (whether as a swap or straight cash should he go somewhere else. Worth noting that Isco played some of his best football under Zidane and was central to his plans. Not that I can ever see Bale back at Spurs but he was no more central in Zidane's RM than he was under Scolari.

Just wonder if this move changes anything re Eriksen's options.... Barca, Juve don't need him, RM will probably move for Hazard (given all the talk re ZZ), a move to PSG is only for the money only really leaving Bayern (in need of a rebuild (old squad), City (LT replacement for Silva ??) Or United (With Mata's age, they have no pure Number 10 (unless thats how you regard Pogba ?)

Maybe just maybe this is a game changer ? Id rather keep a motivated Eriksen than risk spending the money on the wrong option but given his form & indifferent attitude..... Is it too late ??

Bit speculative, I know but cant help thinking his future will likely determine what we have to spend/ how we rebuild this summer.

Maybe this news will settle things down at Spurs, Spec over Poch, Eriksen etc..... If you were levy do you go back to Eriksen now and put a better deal in front of him ? I think I would. Getting his head right now could have a huge impact on our chase for to p4 and the CL itself

Marcelo looks on the way out too possibly.

Levy will see the Coutinho deal and use that as the benchmark for Eriksen's sale price. I'm not saying he'd cost £140m, but I doubt Levy would be happy selling for less than about £80m. And we all know that when Levy isn't happy with the price, he doesn't sell.

Again, to clarify, I'm not singing Levy's praises here. His intransigence in transfer dealings counts against Spurs when it comes to buying players every bit as much as it helps when extracting every penny on a sale.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

I really can't see a player in the last year of his contract go for £80m
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Then he probably won't go. That's the point I'm making.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

So hard to deal with Levy wouldn't accept anything less than £80m but will let him go on a free?

Nah
----------------------------------------------------------------------
I take your point - it is kinda cutting off his nose to spite his face - but it's more or less what he's done with Alderweireld. There were no acceptable offers last summer, so he was happy to keep him around for another year and lose him for substantially less this summer.

Chances are he'd at least try to get Eriksen to sign up to a longer deal in the interim too, but who knows.

80 mil for a decent but not world class player, in the last year of his contract.
No way anyone is paying that, especailly when you can get him signed up to their club for free in Jan,.

Doesn't mean anything - they could still get Pochettino if they wanted.

They could but they wont for at least another 3 years.

I'll be staggered if we get more than £50m for Eriksen with just 1 year left on his contract

Can see Eriksen at Bayern or Juve. I don't think it will be mega money though. More around the £50m mark.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Doubt Eriksen will move to anyone bar Barca or Real.

He’s mentioned multiple times they are where he’d like to end up.

I'd like to be taller
