Report – ‘Stubborn’ manager refuses to even consider Tottenham player as transfer option

The future of Tottenham Hotspur creative midfielder, Christian Eriksen, remains unclear, with just a couple of weeks to go until the start of the new season.

The Great Dane revealed to the media in June that he was now ready to leave Tottenham and look for a new challenge and a step up from the Champions League finalists (Ekstra Bladet).

This leaves Spurs chairman, Daniel Levy, with three clear choices. Sell the player now for a profit, sign him up to a new contract, or risk losing him on a free in the summer of 2020.

The latter of these would be an absolute disaster for Spurs, as they would lose Eriksen’s talent without even being able to cash in on the star.

Real Madrid have been heavily linked with the Danish playmaker this summer, with a recent Sport article (via Sport Witness) stating that Eriksen and Donny Van de Beek had risen to the top of Lo Blanco’s transfer list.

However, a fresh report now claims that Zinedine Zidane is proving to be too stubborn over a potential Paul Pogba deal to even consider either Eriksen or Ajax’s Van de Beek (Mundo Deportivo – via Sport Witness).

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. We have to keep Eriksen. For no other reason than weight of numbers. Our squad wasn’t deep enough last season and so far this window it’s been one in one out. I honestly don’t see us bringing in anyone else. We were made to get our hopes up with those early window deals but that’s our lot. Sessegnon has been talked about since before Fulham were promoted!! Lo Celso has supposedly begged us to come and get him. Levy spouted some nonsense about “improving the playing staff” recently but it’s just lip service
