The future of Christian Eriksen at Tottenham Hotspur has been the subject of much speculation over the last few months.

The Danish international has just one year left on his contract in north London and has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid this summer (The Sun).

Eriksen arrived at Tottenham from Ajax for £11.5million in August 2013 (BBC) and has gone on to become a pivotal part of the club’s progression to top four regulars and Champions League finalists.

The dilemma facing Daniel Levy and  Spurs is a question of whether to sell the midfield maestro following the final against Liverpool on June 1st or risk letting him run down his contract for the final year, by which time he will be able to leave the club for free next summer.

Former Spurs midfielder Darren Anderton admits that it is difficult for the club to compete with some of the giants of European football once they register an interest but still retains hope that Eriksen could remain in N17.

Anderton told SportingBet: “Once the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona’s declare an interest in him, it’s going to be difficult for Tottenham to compete with them,”

“At some point in a player’s career they are going to want to play at one of those clubs, it’s natural. He is a loyal guy, so it wouldn’t surprise me if he does stay but it’s far from a formality.”

Opinion

The vast majority of Spurs fans would like Eriksen to remain at Tottenham but he has put the club in a difficult situation where they may be forced to sell him this summer or risk losing him for free.
