The future of Christian Eriksen continues to be in doubt at Tottenham Hotspur.

Eriksen is out of contract in North London at the end of the current campaign and has reportedly snubbed all attempts to hold talks about extending his stay with the Champions League finalists (Mirror).

The 27-year-old revealed at the end of last season that he wanted to leave the club to seek a new challenge whilst inviting interest from Real Madrid in his services (Ekstra Bladet).

A summer exit failed to materialise for the Dane, who has found himself still playing for Spurs where he has been in and out of Mauricio Pochettino’s starting eleven.

In January, Eriksen will be able to open talks with potential European suitors and agree on a pre-contract before walking away from Spurs as a free agent in the summer.

The winter transfer window represents the last opportunity for Daniel Levy to try and recoup a transfer fee for Eriksen, but may not get his wish.

ESPN report that Eriksen is not interested in packing his bags in January and instead will run down his contract.

Eriksen would prefer to join Real Madrid in the summer as a free agent and command a hefty signing-on fee since the Spanish giants would not have to pay a transfer fee.
