Pundit claims that Spurs star will sign a £400k-a-week contract

Tottenham Hotspur are yet to solve their Christian Eriksen problem, with the Great Dane currently set to leave the club on a free next summer.

Eriksen is well into the final year of his contract and he stated earlier this year that he was ready to move on from Spurs to a bigger challenge (Ekstra Bladet).

However, no concrete bids were reported in the summer for the playmaker and he remains a Spurs player until January at least.

Ex-Leeds and Coventry City striker, Noel Whelan, believes that Eriksen will now wait until the winter window to sign a pre-contract agreement with a new overseas club.

From January onwards, Eriksen is allowed to sign such a deal with a foreign outfit, but not with another club in England.

Whelan believes that there is no chance Spurs can keep the midfielder now and that he will likely sign a £400k-per-week contract with another club.

He said (Football Insider): “It is inevitable Christian Eriksen will leave Tottenham. He’s going to run down his deal and sign a pre-contract with a team like Real Madrid, Barcelona or Juventus in January.

“He’s going to get a similar deal to Aaron Ramsey. Eriksen knows he can massively increase his earnings, as no club will have to pay a transfer fee.

“Ramsey got £400,000-a-week from Juventus, and Eriksen will get the same. He is 27 and still in his best years. I can’t see Tottenham offering him £400,000-a-week.

“It means it looks like he will start the process of leaving in January.”

  1. Give it up Seb. Noel Whelan is not a pundit nor an expert.. He’s a used up old footballer desperate for attention.
    If Spurs want to keep Eriksen, and he receives a better offer; they will add a signing bonus to their current offer. This is the kind of bad advice that Eriksen has received from his “friends” who are trying to get a piece of the action or become his agent. They may bring his whole career down while he plays for 40% of what he has been offered.
