Real Madrid will move for Tottenham Hotspur playmaker Christian Eriksen if Luka Modric is snapped up by Inter Milan, according to a report.
Los Blancos fear losing the Croatia international to the Italian club as he has allegedly expressed an interest in making a switch this summer.
The Sun suggests that Madrid already know who they want to fill the void left by Modric if he brings his six-year stay at the Bernabeu to an end, with Eriksen seen as the ideal replacement.
Tottenham have been desperately trying to tie the 26-year-old down to a new contract, having been allowed to enter the final two years of his existing deal.
Modric described Eriksen as "a world-class player" ahead of Croatia's meeting with Denmark in the World Cup last 16.
