The European transfer window remaining open until September 2nd certainly causes some uncertainty about Tottenham Hotspur’s squad.
Mauricio Pochettino recently admitted that his Spurs squad is less settled than he had envisaged at this stage until clubs on the continent are unable to conduct their business (Sky Sports).
Christian Eriksen’s future in North London is still up in the air after the Dane revealed just days after the Champions League defeat to Liverpool that he wanted to seek a new challenge (Ekstra Bladet).
Eriksen admitted that he would be interested in a move to Real Madrid but a move has not materialised.
The Sun claim that the Spanish giants have told Eriksen to wait, where they would be able to agree a pre-contract deal in January and make the switch to La Liga on a free transfer at the end of the current campaign.
The report also suggests that Eriksen will sign a five-year contract when he departs Spurs which will take him up to the age of 33.
The 27-year-old has been at Spurs since 2013 when he joined the club in an £11.5million deal from Ajax (BBC) and has gone on to make 208 appearances for the club in the Premier League, scoring 49 goals along with an impressive 60 assists.
