The future of Tottenham Hotspur midfielder, Christian Eriksen, is still up in the air as the player enters the final six months of his contract in North London.
The start of January marked the point at which Eriksen could start talking to non-English clubs about a possible free transfer at the end of the season.
However, Spurs could also still look to make a sale in January to claw back some money if the Great Dane consents to leaving early. Of course, he would likely rake in a huge signing on bonus if he waited for a free transfer.
Spurs take on Middlesborough away in the FA Cup this weekend, and it looks as if Eriksen could start his third match in a row under Jose Mourinho.
The Tottenham manager stated that he still did not know whether Eriksen would leave in January. He simply stated that he could leave this window, he could leave on a free, or he could still sign a new deal.
Is the last one wishful thinking?
Charlie Eccleshare reports Jose said:
I don't know [about Eriksen leaving in January]. At the moment he can agree with a club for the end of the season, another option is for him to leave in January. Another possibility is that he stays.
In this moment he is here, he is our player. He will play at Middlesbrough.
