Christian Eriksen’s future at Tottenham Hotspur has been the subject of plenty of speculation over the past few months.

The Dane is out of contract in North London next summer and he will be able to hold discussions with foreign clubs from January and walk away for free at the end of the 2019/20 season.

Eriksen has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid (The Sun) with Zinedine Zidane looking to make changes to the squad after a disappointing campaign that saw them finish a massive 19 points behind rivals Barcelona in the La Liga table.

Spanish news outlet El Confidential are reporting that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy met with his Madrid counterpart Florentino Perez in the Spanish capital on Friday night at City Hall and made his stance clear that he will not be selling the former Ajax man.

The report claims that Levy is ready to back Mauricio Pochettino this summer and has made Eriksen’s contract situation a priority and could even break the club’s current strict wage structure.

However, Spurs now face an uphill task to keep Eriksen after he admitted that he wants to seek a fresh challenge (Ekstra Bladet).

 

Real Betis’ Giovani Los Celso has been rumoured to be on Tottenham’s radar, with the report adding that Pochettino wants Los Celso to join Eriksen in the ranks at N17 rather than replace him.

Opinion

If Daniel Levy can get Christian Eriksen to commit his future to the club and also sign Los Celso it would be a huge statement of the direction he wants the club to go in.

Have something to tell us about this article?

  1. I love Eriksen but he has stated he wants to try something new and different, his heart is with a move to Real Madrid and to me you could see that in his form all season. He wants to step up as he puts it imo we should let it be and just make sure we do well in the deal. We will not get what his true value is as he only has 1 year contract left so to me a straight swap for Isco or Bale (Isco being more affordable wages) would be great business for both clubs.
