TOTTENHAM are willing to offer Christian Eriksen an eye-watering double-your-money pay rise in a bid to keep him at the club, it has been claimed.
The Dane currently earns around £80k-a-week but the North Londoners are considering putting a £200k-a-week deal on the table to fend off Juventus, according to reports.
The Italian giants reportedly plan to sign him on a free at the end of this season.
Eriksen, 27, only has a year left on his Tottenham contract and the Italians have form having recently brought in Aaron Ramsey and Emre Can on free transfers.
MONEY NOT THE ISSUE
But Daniel Levy wants to avoid that at all costs and will move to prevent it according to The Mail.
However, Eriksen has made it clear that his next move will not be decided by the money on offer and has made no secret of his wish to play for a bigger club than Tottenham.
And even if the Dane did sign a new Spurs deal, it is said he would demand the inclusion of a sell-on clause to allow him to fulfil his dream of playing elsewhere if a big club stumped up the cash.
Having declared his desire to leave earlier this summer, Eriksen attracted interest from many of Europe's biggest clubs.
Real Madrid is his preferred destination but after Los Blancos splashed the cash on Eden Hazard their interest cooled.
And despite late movement from Manchester United, the English window slammed shut on August 8 with Eriksen still at Spurs.
