Christian Eriksen’s future at Tottenham Hotspur has been the subject of intense speculation over the past few weeks.
The Dane barely waited a few days when he revealed to the Danish media that he wanted to leave North London to seek a fresh challenge while inviting an approach from Real Madrid (Ekstra Bladet).
Eriksen reported back for duty at Hotspur Way on Friday as part of the last crop of players who returned to training ahead of next Wednesday’s trip to the far east.
As things currently stand he will be boarding the plane to face Juventus and Manchester United in Singapore and Shanghai.
The playmaker has just twelve months to run on his existing contract at Spurs and would be able to sign a pre-contract agreement with a club on the continent in January and then walking away on a free transfer at the end of the upcoming campaign.
The Guardian are reporting that Eriksen is running short of potential options with Real Madrid yet to make an official approach with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy reported to have placed a price tag which could be as high as £130 million on his head, despite his contract situation.
Christian Eriksen could find himself in the position of still being at Spurs come the first game of the Premier League season and it will be interesting to see whether he will sign a new contract at the club or sit tight and run down his existing deal.
One way or another, we need the situation resolved as soon as possible for the benefit of the team and Mauricio Pochettino’s planning.
