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.

Sell him now. Buy a replacement like Brandt, Havertz or Dybala in the winter.

Not seen anything to convince me he wants to stay. Watching the pre season friendlies and yesterdays game, he seems to be going through the motions. Be good to get 60 mil for him. We have enough quality to cope til January then we can go back for Dybala maybe

Just move on, great player on his day, but the last 6months he is 1 on 4 off we have had better players and will in the future he isnt good enough to hold that badge to ransom.

If this is true he doesn’t deserve he is one of the most inconsistent players ever!

would make no sense for him to sign anything, he already signed a contract and if he wants to honor that and bounce, so be it.

Anyone who doesnt want to be here shouldn't be here. Same goes for Bale, same goes for Eriksen.
