Barca watched several Spurs stars

2

La Liga giants Barcelona are still interested in Christian Eriksen, and went to watch him against Liverpool this weekend.

Barca’s Sporting director Robert Fernandez has, according to Mundo Deportivo, been personally watching a number of Barca targets in recent weeks , and Eriksen was the latest as he and his Spurs team put Liverpool to the sword in a resounding 4-1 victory at Wembley.

The article also states that amongst other names, the the Catalans were also watching Colombian defender Davinson Sanchez and England attacking midfielder Dele Alli.

The article continues, saying Fernandez had already watched Eriksen, team-mate and man of the moment Harry Kane on Tuesday as the the duo impressed in the Champions League in the 1-1 draw against Real Madrid.

It continues saying Barca still have some of the £198m PSG paid them for Neymar and are looking to replace the Brazilian with a big name signing.

Eriksen was heavily linked to the Catalans this summer, however the Dane spoke of his desire to stay in London.

Eriksen explained: “I like living in London. I wouldn’t have extended my contract if I didn’t,” he said. “Even now you always see something new when you go into London; little shops popping up. The family have been here enough so I don’t need to show them around anymore. Playing for Spurs is special. I was saying to my girlfriend on holiday that I’d just realised it is going to be my fifth season here and it’s gone so quick.”

The inevitable transfer stories rear their ugly head. It’s all very predictable with new signing Davinson Sanchez added to the mix. Judging by Eriksen words it looks like he’s in no hurry to head off anywhere anytime soon.

Have something to tell us about this article?

  1. Now if the clowns in the press both home an abroad had said a couple of years ago that both Barcelona and Real Madrid were interested in taking our most productive stars, I'd have been concerned particularly as THFC had sold off some of it's most important players over the past 10 years however, I now laugh at the suggestion. Interesting that Davinson Sanchez has been added to the growing list of players the Spanish club is reported to be interested in acquiring. Didn't Sanchez snub Barcelona prior to signing for Spurs in the Summer? All of a sudden he's back on their wishlist and the season still in its infancy. The no class press in Spain aided and abetted by the low class press in the UK are now suggesting our manager Pochettino is a target for the vultures of Madrid along with usual suspects Kane and Alli, amazing. Of course Modric and Bale are constantly used as a reference. The Croatian wanted to joind Chelsea the year before he left for the Madrid club and the Welshman couldnt resist the lure of Madrid either. The situation at THFC has changed dramatically since those days as both the Spanish clubs and their slavish press will eventually come to realise.
