According to a report in the Telegraph, Tottenham Hotspur are planning for life after Christian Eriksen, with the 27-year-old making it clear that he is not signing a new contract.
Eriksen, along with centre-halves Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld, will see their contract with Spurs run out at the end of the current campaign.
The report claims that new Tottenham head coach Jose Mourinho has spoken to all three players regarding their contract situations.
While Alderweireld and Vertonghen are said to be keen on committing their futures to the club and being a part of the Mourinho era, Eriksen is reportedly less eager.
The Danish international has allegedly told the new Spurs boss that he will not be signing a new contract with the club and that he wishes to seek a new challenge.
While Tottenham would prefer to sell Eriksen in January, the midfielder is said to be intent on leaving for free in the summer which will allow him to earn a big signing-on fee.

It has been clear for a while that Eriksen isn’t willing to sign a new contract and that is probably why Mourinho is yet to hand him a start while he started both Vertonghen and Alderweireld against Bournemouth. If he is to leave for a free in the summer, let’s hope we can get the best out of the midfielder till then. While his form has been poor so far this season, there were a lot of positive signs when he came on against Olympiacos.
