Report: Christian Eriksen wants certain clause added to a new Spurs contract

Tottenham Hotspur are still hopeful of persuading Christian Eriksen to remain at the club.

The Dane revealed shortly after the disappointing Champions League final loss to Liverpool that he wanted to leave North London ahead of the new season whilst also stating his interest in making a move to Real Madrid (Ekstra Bladet).

Eriksen is now within the last year of his contract at Tottenham and could leave the club on a free transfer next summer.

The Daily Mail have claimed that Spurs are willing to offer the playmaker a new deal worth more than double the £80,000-a-week he currently earns.

Key to the negotiations is said to be Eriksen’s requirement to have a clause inserted in a new contract which would allow him to leave for a fixed price if a bid is received from certain clubs.

Such a clause would see Eriksen be able to depart the Champions League finalists in the future if the likes of Real Madrid come calling.

Eriksen’s hopes of a move to the Spanish giants seems to be becoming more and more unlikely with Los Blancos.  Ajax’s Donny van de Beek is said to be on the verge of a switch to Zinedine Zidane’s side (Marca).


Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. As long as it’s a decent amount like €100 or so and only 1 or 2 clubs not like a Xmas list of clubs lol, then I don’t see why that would be a problem because he will need to up his game if he wants the likes of Real Madrid to come calling. That could only be good for us in this coming season so really it’s a win win, plus it also has to be put into Eriksen’s contract that he can only leave during a summer transfer window not in a January window then I’m all for it. COYS!

  2. Think we should go with this but none of the teams in the clause should be from the PL……we shouldn’t be selling our key/best players to our rivals !

  3. I agree with superhot I don’t see what the problem is give him a 100 mil release clause and be done with it. Its obvious Madrid really didn’t want him and only a few teams can afford that. If they wanna pay ot then I we have the capital to replace him. I.E. bale/modric. This is better than losing him for nothing next summer. Worried about him leaving to a rival when he may do that for free anyway next summ3r is foolish, at least with the clause we get paid for it.

  4. Can anyone please tell me when has Levy ever put a release clause in any of our players contracts? If you believe all the bullshit in the press you need your heads tested.
