Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen has been linked heavily with a move away from the club all summer but a transfer has failed to materialise.

The 27-year-old, who has only one year left on his contract with the club, revealed his decision to seek a new challenge earlier in the summer(Ekstra Bladet).

The Dane started the 2-2 draw against Manchester City last Saturday after coming off the bench to produce a fantastic performance against Aston Villa in Spurs’ opening game of the season.

ESPN have now claimed that the Danish international has told the Tottenham hierarchy that he is only interested in swapping Spurs for three clubs – Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Juventus.

The report suggests that Spurs are prepared to offer the midfielder a new deal worth £200,000 a week but the playmaker already has his heart set on playing for a new club this season.

It is further asserted that the club are bewildered at Eriksen’s stance as he has shown no interest in even discussing the terms on offer despite little sign of interest from Madrid, Barca, and Juve.

As it is apparent that Eriksen doesn’t seem to be at the top of Real Madrid’s wishlist this summer, the ideal situation for all parties would be for the Dane to sign a contract extension with a release clause that would allow him to leave if the likes of Madrid come calling again next summer.

  1. I wonder why neither of those clubs you mentioned haven’t come in for him as yet? Is this more media bullshit to fill column inches passed on from the Danish press? You know how those wankers like to promote their boy. If Eriksen stays this season and leaves on a free next Summer, all Spurs would have lost is the initial investment of £11M they paid Ajax for him 6 years ago which in my opinion was money well spent for the best part, not some hypothetical inflated figure made up by the nonces in the press. Sure, they could have sold him a year ago if there were any offers and made a profit but it is what it is. Time to move on from this Eriksen saga as if he’s the next messiah walking on water.
