Tottenham Hotspur have already lost one star midfielder this season, with Mousa Dembele transferring over to a Chinese team for his twilight years.
However, the club could lose yet another regular starter, with Christian Eriksen entering the final year of his contract at the end of this season.
With no new deal in sight, Spurs must now decide whether to sell the star for a profit, or risk having his contract run down and losing him on a free in 2020.
It appears that Daniel Levy plans to play hard ball, as usual, with Football Insider claiming a club source has revealed the chairman has put a heft price on Eriksen’s head.
They say that Levy will not take a penny less than £140m for the playmaker, and obscene amount for someone in the final year of their contract, but then again, perhaps that is the idea.
Sticking to such a high price will all but guarantee that Eriksen stays for another season, but is it all worth it if he is to leave on a free just a year later?
Money, or a year’s worth of the Great Dane?
