Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen is no longer in the picture as a potential transfer target at Real Madrid, according to reports in Spain.

A report on Sunday reckons that Eriksen was so desperate to leave north London that he ‘packed up his north London house’ even before a disappointing performance in the Champions League final.

He certainly looked like a player whose mind was elsewhere, which was seemingly confirmed when he publicly stated his desire to leave less than a week later.

Eriksen has been linked heavily with a move to Real Madrid but Zinedine Zidane’s side have since turned their attentions to Paul Pogba.

And the final knock-out blow to Eriksen’s chances of a move to the Bernabeu seems to have come in the form of Zidane’s opinion of the player.

A report in Marca (via Sport Witness) reckons Eriksen is no longer even a Plan B if Real miss out on Pogba as Zidane thinks he ‘lacks the punch’ to be a Los Blancos player.
