Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen’s future has been subject to a lot of speculation recently after the midfielder admitted that he is seeking a new challenge and said that he would be open to a move to Real Madrid (Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet).

However, it is unclear whether Madrid will bid for Eriksen with Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba reportedly being their primary midfield target (AS).

The Red Devils have remained adamant that the French international is not for sale but a report in The Evening Standard claims that United will let Pogba go if Madrid are willing to pay around £150m for him.

The report goes on to claim that United believe they can use that money to land one of Youri Tielemans, Christian Eriksen or James Maddison, and still have around £100m to spend on other targets of which they believe they can land Eriksen for around £70-£80m.

Christian Eriksen’s contract with Tottenham only has one more year left to run and Marca claim that Tottenham will let him go for an offer of around €70m.

Spurs Web Opinion

This report by the Evening Standard seems to be pure conjuncture as Eriksen clearly stated that he would only move to a club that represents a step up from Spurs. Manchester United who will play Europa League football next season will be a step down for the Dane.

Have something to tell us about this article?

  1. 100m plus would be the cost to Man U (the team that don’t strengthen rivals), thats if Eriksen would sign for them purely for a big payday.

  2. Hmm. Thinking of the bigger picture, I expect Levy is waiting for the Newcastle take over and for the new owners to splash the oil cash at our Spurs team. Expect much of our unwanted fist team and fringe players to head up North. Otherwise, its looking like a tough market to sell in. There are not too many clubs that can afford Eriksen and even fewer who don’t realise there are better options out there for far fewer pounds- expect the great Dane to sign a contract extension when he realises nobody who wants him can afford him.
