Report: There is a ‘growing feeling’ that Spurs star will leave the club this summer

Tottenham Hotspur have been embroiled in one of the biggest transfer sagas of the summer so far, will Christian Eriksen leave, or will he stay?

Real Madrid had been heavily linked with the Spurs playmaker, but reportedly dropped their interest in favour of pursuing Man United’s Paul Pogba (Express).

However, recent reports have indicated that Los Blancos may have revived their interest in the Tottenham man, as Eriksen’s agent apparently flew out to Spain to speak to Madrid representatives (Marca).

The 27-year-old has become one of the very best playmakers in world football since joining Spurs, even scoring eight and assisting 12 in what was deemed to be a below-par Prem season last time out.

He also scored two and assisted four more in Tottenham’s run to the Champions League final, where they lost to Liverpool by two goals to nil (WhoScored).

The Daily Star have now reported that there is a growing feeling that Eriksen will leave the club this summer, despite other claims stating that Tottenham are confident he will sign a new deal (Graeme Bailey).

Spurs Web Opinion:

Personally, I wanted to see Eriksen sold this summer. I think he has gone beyond the point of being able to recover at Tottenham after his comments, but I do not blame him and wish him all the best. In my view, Spurs would be strengthened by his departure, using the money to invest in one or two new players.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. One of the very best? Eriksen couldn’t lace Luca Modrics boots. I hope the fair weathered prick fucks off and the sooner the better.

    • A bit of rose tinted hindsight there. Remember Modric also failed to turn up from about february onwards, where we dropped from 3rd 3pts off the top down to fifth, losing out to the Goons. Modric also refused to train with the team to force through a move to madrid (something he has since apoligized for).
      Do you know how many players have had more assists than Eriksen in the prem since Eriksens arrival? Zero players
      Eriksen and Modric play different positions but Modric gets nowhere near Eriksen on goals, assists and key passes.
      Cheering for a player like Eriksen to leave is hairbrained as hell. If he goes it be a real challenge to replace what he has given Spurs since his arrival but if thats what he chooses then we have to accept it. Its mad to disregard what hes done for Spurs though… COYS

  2. Although I wanted Eriksen sold, I think it would be optimal for all parties if we could get get Eriksen to sign a new deal, stay for another season, playing in front of Lo Celso and NDombele and trying to win things, and for Eriksen to leave as an in demand player next summer.

    Lets be honest, we can come to terms with Eriksen leaving because of how he finished out the season, plus his comments, but its never optimal for one of our best ever players (and make no mistake he is) with only 1 year remaining and the vultures circling. its also not optimal for Eriksen to go somewhere where he isn’t guaranteed to play week in and week out. He needs to cement his place as a galactico type next season to guarantee a massive contract and a starting place at Real or Barca. Whether Eriksen sees it like that, who knows, but I would hope he could do a modric and stay another year. We are on the edge of a big big season and I feel the less wholesale changes the better this summer.

  3. Really Seb? Which comment would that be? His statement that he would be interested in a new challenge if it was presented?
    You do not blame him for ? Listening to the lies of Woodward and Perez and wanting to see if they materialize ? Kane didn’t make a verbal statement, but he made a strong physical statement that he was abandoning the team that pays his wages in order to play “Captain England”. Nobody seems to be screaming to “sell him on”. I do admit that I hope we can get his loyalty back to Spurs next year. We got about half a season from Kane last year and three quarters from Eriksen but both made worthwhile cotributions and we should try to keep them.

  4. From another viewpoint, whoever we buy or sell we need to be capable of playing a more exciting and expansive game. Playing the ball sideways and backwards, remember that corner in the final, too often producing boring and negative football. Is this the fault of the players or coach.? On the odd occasion where we did play sublime attacking football, Eric was often at the hub of the action. So should we sack the coach, medical staff for all the injuries or fans who have the audacity of wanting to be entertained. Lets face it we were crap for long periods and no more so than in the final.
    Happy days Hairy Bob
