Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen recently told Danish publication Ekstra Bladet that wants to seek a new challenge and named Real Madrid as one of the clubs that would represent a step up from Spurs.
The Dane, who has been one of the team’s most important players in his six seasons at the club, has just one more year left to run on his contract.
After his comments, the press was rife with speculation linking the 27-year-old with a move to Real Madrid this summer, with reports in AS suggesting that the Spanish giants will move for one of either Eriksen or Man Utd midfielder Paul Pogba this summer, after already completing the signings of Luka Jovic, Eder Militao, Rodrygo Goesif, and Eden Hazard.
Now, Ekstra Bladet have once again spoken to the Danish international regarding his future, and this time the playmaker was much more coy about his plans, insisting that he doesn’t want to throw any more bombshells.
According to the report, the Spurs midfielder said (Via Sport Witness): “The focus is on vacation, and I’ve said what needed to be said. No more bombs this time around.”

It could be that the Dane received an earful from the club for opening up to the press about his future plans in his previous interview, and that’s probably why he is coy this time around. It looks like Eriksen staying or leaving depends on whether Real Madrid are willing to prioritize his signature over that of Paul Pogba.
