Arsenal fans have been left gobsmacked by the latest piece of gossip coming out of their North London rivals. The Gunners have stumbled across a Sky Sports tweet that has shared news from Spanish outlet AS claiming that Daniel Levy has slapped a £225 million price tag on Christian Eriksen in an attempt to deter Real Madrid from bidding for him.
EURO PAPER TALK
Christian Eriksen would cost Real Madrid £225m, plus more from Wednesday’s European press.

Whilst the Gunners hate their North London rivals, they can’t deny a great player when they see one and they all appreciate that Christian Eriksen is a top talent. However, for Levy to putting a price tag of £225 million on his head is ludicrous in the extreme and they’ve been having a good laugh at the expense of their derby rivals at the sheer ridiculousness of the fee that Levy is demanding.
The Arsenal fans will know that no one will be coming in and paying that sum for Eriksen, and Levy will know that too, but it’s a move that has been made to prevent any potential offers for the Danish midfielder coming in. Even so, it’s been picked up on quickly by the Gunners, who will be laughing at the decision to demand so much for a player like Eriksen, who has a Transfermarkt valuation of £72 million.

He'll go for 50m next Jan.

Hazard is a better option no matter d cost. Coz there’s Modric & Isco in d mix of the midfield already…

He could pay for the stadium

The Gunners are all shocked at what Levy wants for Eriksen and have no idea how the Tottenham chief executive has stumbled upon £225 million as his asking price for the 26-year-old.
