Bayern Munich is set to rival Spanish Giants Real Madrid in the pursuit of Spurs playmaker Christian Eriksen in the January transfer window.
According to reports emanating from Germany, the Bavarians are plotting a cut-price January move for Tottenham star player Eriksen. Real Madrid is also chasing the Danish player.
