‘Sell him now’ – Some fans react to reports of star rejecting contract talks

Mauricio Pochettino has over the past five years built a Tottenham Hotspur team which is on the verge of being able to compete for silverware.

One player which the Spurs boss inherited was Christian Eriksen, who had made the move from Ajax in 2013 for a reported £11.5million (BBC).

Eriksen has been a pivotal part in Tottenham’s progress under Pochettino but wasted no time this summer in revealing his future hopes.

The Dane stated in an interview with Ekstra Bladet that he wanted to seek a challenge away from Spurs whilst admitting that he would welcome an approach from Spanish giants Real Madrid.

A report from The Mirror claimed that Eriksen has rejected the opportunity to hold talks over a new contract, with the club willing to pay him £200,000-a-week.

The news has seen some Spurs fans take to Twitter to react to the reports.  Eriksen has just under twelve months to run on his current deal in North London and there is a chance he would leave on a free transfer next summer.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. If RM offer £60m I guess we should take it.
    But if they don’t, or offer more like £30m to £40m, then let him run his contract
    out in 2020.
    One thing’s for sure, if Eriksen stays and doesn’t put himself in the
    frame by having a great final season with us, then
    he’ll secure a far lesser contract with the club of his
    dreams, or whoever else wants him.
    Any offer less than £50m before 2nd September
    would not be worth taking, as Eriksen could really
    influence a great season for us. But he’ll be on far less
    money, while Spurs will get nothing for a world class player
    next summer.
    Commons sense says he should negotiate a contract
    with Spurs that contains a ‘get out’ clause. Say £200k pw over
    the next 2 years, but if Real came in next summer and offered
    £50m or £60m, then Spurs would have to take it (if Eriksen still
    wanted to leave). That makes all round sense if RM don’t come
    in with at least £50m in the next few weeks.
