Daniel Levy has admitted in an interview with the Evening Standard that he is not scared to sell the players who are nearing the end of their contract at Tottenham to their Premier League rivals.
Whilst the Spurs chairman didn’t name any one member of Jose Mourinho’s squad by name, there has been plenty of speculation regarding midfielder Christian Eriksen’s future with reports suggested that the Danish international has rejected all of Tottenham’s contract offers to date (Evening Standard).
His current contract with the club runs out at the end of the current campaign and will be able to move on a free transfer next summer if Spurs fail to sell him next month.
The former Ajax man has been linked with a move to Manchester United in recent weeks (90 min).
Levy’s insistence that he will be willing to do business with Tottenham’s rivals, didn’t sit well with some Spurs fans who questioned if the Tottenham chairman had learnt anything from his previous mistakes.
Embarrassing to be honest. I’d rather he go on free to Madrid . What’s the point selling him if money is not reinvested in improving squad

Eriksen is not finished he’s still got quality he just needs a new start at a new club which he’s been honest about – Levy & his agent should have had a deal done before start of season with Dybala or such like as replacement poor handling of situation by the club. Poor.

This combined with the no signings in Jan comment piss me off!
We sold Walker to City and pretty much completed their puzzle, and never replaced him with suitable replacement!

Just like we gave Man City the league by giving them Walker ?

Not scared of strengthening a rival…
That makes no sense at all…

While Levy obviously wants to get the best deal possible for the club, strengthening the likes of Manchester United will be a mistake. It is clear that Eriksen himself wants to go to Spain. So in an ideal world, Madrid will come in with a bid for him in January. If they don’t then I can certainly see us selling him to a Premier League rival.
