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.
