Zinedine Zidane reportedly vetoed a move for former Tottenham star Christian Eriksen despite the midfielder having a verbal agreement with Real Madrid.

The 27-year-old finally sealed a move from Tottenham after signing for Serie A side Inter Milan in a £17million deal, but he had been linked with Los Blancos for nearly the entirety of last summer.

Eriksen reportedly had his heart set on a move to Real Madrid, and according to AS, the club had an agreement with the player verbally – only for Zidane to turn down the chance of a deal.

 

 

Madrid opted not to go ahead with a transfer as they already had enough numbers in the middle of the park.

Zidane is also thought to be keen on giving youth a chance at the Bernabeu and the signing of Eriksen would have made it harder for the likes of Martin Odegaard to break through next season.
