Inter Milan’s chase of Real Madrid’s star Luka Modric has reportedly suffered hiccups after Tottenham’s massive evaluation of Christian Eriksen
According to UK Sun report citing sources at Gianluca Di Marzio the Premier League club are demanding a stunning £178million from the Los Blancos who see the Danish playmaker as a potential replacement want away Modric.
The 32-year-old finalist at the summer World Cup in Russia is eager to seal a move to Serie A but was in action for the Galaticos in the UEFA Super Cup defeat on Wednesday night.

Currently, Eriksen has 24 months left on his contract and Tottenham are keen to convince him to pen a new deal, with Paris Saint-Germain also eyeing a deal for the midfielder.
