Report: Christian Eriksen left ‘convinced’ by five-year contract offer

Spanish newspaper AS are reporting that Christian Eriksen is close to reaching an agreement with Premier League rivals Manchester United.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy reportedly wants to cash in on Eriksen due to the fact that he now has under one year left on his contract in North London and the club do not want to risk him leaving for free next summer (TalkSport).

Eriksen has already stated he would like a new challenge with his comments coming just days after the Champions League final defeat to Liverpool (Ekstra Bladet).  His revelation about his future plans have led to him being heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid.

Eriksen is said to have been ‘convinced’ by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plans to restore United to their former glory and has been offered a five-year contract at Old Trafford.

AS claim that Spurs only want £60 million for Eriksen, which is significantly lower than the £100 million that they wanted in January (The Sun).

This is also lower than the £70 million which Sporting Lisbon reportedly want for his potential replacement Bruno Fernandes (O Jogo).

Spurs Web Opinion

Selling Eriksen for £60 million to a fellow Premier League club would be madness. I’d almost rather keep the player and let him walk away for free in the summer if it meant him moving abroad rather than strengthening a team in the same league as us.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Who else is fed up with Eriksen? Just sell him. Yes he’s a decent player. But a Modric or a Hazard? No chance.
    I could say he goes missing, looks uninterested etc etc.
    If we want to hit the final of winning Trophy’s then we need better than him.

  2. Stupid suggestion.
    Let him walk for free? Really.
    Glad you’re not in charge of our club.
    Eriksen is not as good as everyone thinks. The guy can’t even beat the first man from a corner FFS.
    Sell him NOW and get Fernandes or Coutinho.

  3. Letting him walk for free would be utter madness. His body language suggests he is done with Spurs. Just like Modric after being told no to his surreptitious Chelsea entreaty, he will be playing to stay in shape but not really going to put himself out too much. The difference here is, we have limited leverage over Eriksen. He will walk for free in a year. Who’s to say in a year he does not walk to ManU for free. Sell him now, get as much as you can from a non-PL team or make ManU stump at least 80M.

    One free kick goal in the PL in over three years is not a great return. He is not Hazard, nor DeBruyne. Get in Lo Celso and Fernadez. Lo Celso has really quick feet and excellent vision. I think he could be a great player. Not yet worth anywhere near 88M Euros. Fernandez looks to have excellent dead ball ability and is more like for like with Eriksen.

    Would be equal madness for Fulham to let Sessegnon go for free next year for a development fee.

    Spurs in the cases of Sessegnon and Lo Celso cases are the best (only) offers on the table. Fulham spent 100M net last year and got relegated. Cannot imagine as they are not squirming just a bit. Still 3 days to get things arranged. Sessegnon just returned from holiday and is in treatment. Lo Celso also just returned. Rather them be here already but will wait a few more days if that’s what it takes for the price to become reasonable. Paying 20M over valuation for either player seems foolish. Doing it with both would qualify as absurd.

  4. To be honest this window and our ability to move is being held to ransom by eriksen and his refusal to sign a new contract. It is of course his right however he is doing nothing to help the club by this stance. To say he is an average player is also wrong his stats are up there with the best in the premier league believe it or not. Just imagine if he really tried and if DL backed the coach with more money where we could be. However if eriksen does leave I hope we get a good price were ever he goes because if we don’t DL will only use this as a reason not to spend money.

  5. We should not sell Eriksen to man utd or any other premier League team at any price, he is a good player that would make those teams stronger with him in their side. If he really wants to go sell him overseas.

  6. Eriksen wants to leave so let him go and don’t make him feel important we can get better loyal players, hes forcing his way out so I personally say that we should cut him off lick our wounds and move on, I say the worst thing a club can do to a world class player like him is to hand him over in a swap deal, I think this is the most humiliating transfer than can happen to a good player, its just my opinion.

  7. Let the man go “lick our wounds move on” case closed!!!, why should we make him feel so important by crying over the fact that hes about to leave? why should make him feel as if he is so good that if we sell him to a premier league team they will beat us? how do you think our entire squads feels reading all these posts about 1 player been so important , are we a one player squad???? we have a good team all we have to do is dig a little in the transfer market and BOOM! ill delivery Eriksen myself…..MY OPINION…..N17
