Christian Eriksen is ready to play for either Real Madrid or Barcelona, his former Denmark teammate Thomas Sorensen has said.

Eriksen has been at Spurs for five seasons however he has yet to win a major trophy despite helping us to three successive top-four finishes.

However his displays for club and country have reportedly made him a target for Barcelona as they look at potential midfield reinforcements.

“He is a loyal guy, so for him to leave Tottenham it would need to be something special,” Sorensen told Omnisport.”If Barcelona or Real Madrid came calling, he would definitely need to consider it. He would definitely fit in there — he’s mature enough now to go to a big club like that with the expectations and playing with other great players.

Sorensen added: “He is at the right time now that he’s ready for that so, if the opportunity comes and it’s possible for him, he should go.”

Eriksen is under contract until 2020 and has scored 56 goals in 229 games since joining from Ajax in 2013. He has scored 21 goals in 77 appearances for Denmark, including a devastating hat trick as they qualified for Russia 2018 by routing the Republic of Ireland in a playoff.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Ready for Barca or Real? Do you mean playing wise? ..because Spurs aren’t an independent training ground ready to unleash players onto the big scene. On our day, and at our best, we are more than capable of beating Real, PSG or Barca (in fact we have done). So by ‘ready’ for these clubs, do we mean that Eriksen (like Bale and Modric before him) is just ready for more cash and an easier route to trophies? Tottenham are that close to having our day, so don’t let our best players jump ship now!
