Tottenham star Christian Eriksen appears to be making plans for his desired move to Real Madrid this summer.
The Danish playmaker has made it clear that he would relish the chance to play at the Bernabeu after six seasons in London.
And according to The Times, Eriksen’s family have been spotted in the Spanish capital looking for a house.

Eriksen has one year left on his current contract but Spurs are still said to be demanding £100million for the 27-year-old.
But Eriksen’s willingness to make a ‘step up’ to a bigger club could force chairman Daniel Levy to lower his asking price ahead of the transfer deadline.
Eriksen told Danish publication Ekstra Bladet earlier this summer: ‘I feel that I am a place in my career where I might want to try something new.
‘I have the wildest and deepest respect for everything that has happened in Tottenham, nor will it be negative.
‘But I have also said that I would like to try something new.’

He added: ‘It depends on Daniel Levy. And another club has to come in. Or I have to sit down at the table and negotiate a new contract. You can’t set a date yourself.’
‘There are not many points that Tottenham cannot meet. If I have to go, then hopefully it will be a step up.
‘[Real Madrid] is a step up. But it requires Real Madrid to call Tottenham and say they want me. And they have not done so yet, as far as I know.’
Real have already signed Eden Hazard from Chelsea but could still have room for Eriksen as they are in need of major changes following last season’s woeful La Liga campaign, which saw them finish 19 points below Barcelona.
Eriksen scored eight goals and provided 12 assists in 35 Premier League appearances last season.
