Christian Eriksen has played down panic about his future at Tottenham Hotspur.

The Dane’s contract expires with the Premier League side in eighteen months time and has no update on his contract situation.

Eriksen was earlier today linked with a £40million switch to European giants Real Madrid who are looking for a potential successor to Luka Modric in the heart of midfield, according to the Daily Mail.

The player has recently returned to action following an abdominal problem and featured on both occasions in Denmark’s recent matches against Wales and the Republic of Ireland.

He currently earns around £70,000 a week at Tottenham while fellow midfielder Dele Alli, who recently signed a contract extension takes home around £150,000 a week.

Rather than focus on talks about his contract, Eriksen instead changed the subject to the excitement surrounding the new Tottenham Hotspur stadium.

Spurs will continue to play the remainder of their matches at Wembley in 2018 and have reached a contingency agreement to see the rest of the season out at the national stadium.

Eriksen told the Daily Mail: ‘There are so many reports… Don’t believe them, not from what I know anyway.’

‘We have always been happy at Wembley,’ he added, turning attention to the new stadium. ‘But of course, everyone wants to move into the new stadium. You can’t move into a new stadium before it’s finished, though.

‘We just have to wait until it’s properly done. We know when that time comes it will be exceptional. People are getting their hopes up that it will be sooner rather than later, but it takes time, we just need to be patient.’

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. £40m for Eriksen, are you having a laugh? do they only want to buy one leg or something? as far as I’m concerned, he’s right up there with the likes of Coutinho and would demand a similar price, if not more.
