Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have been taking to Twitter following the news that Christian Eriksen wants to leave the club.
The Danish international has been a key part of Tottenham’s progression under Mauricio Pochettino and has now told the Danish media that he wants a fresh challenge this summer. (Ekstra Bladet)
His current contract situation at Spurs poses a risk with him having just a year left on his current contract which has seen him become the subject of rumoured interest from Spanish giants Real Madrid.
The 27-year-old’s revelation comes on the back of the club’s 2-0 defeat to Liverpool in the Champions League final on Saturday evening and represents a significant blow for Mauricio Pochettino who would no doubt want to keep the playmaker in North London.
Daniel Levy has a track record of being a tough negotiator with Real Madrid over the transfers for Gareth Bale and Luka Modric and it remains to be seen whether he will see eye to eye with Florentino Perez at the negotiation table this time around (Guardian).
Here’s how some Spurs fans have reacted to the news

Fair play, been at spurs a while so if he goes no hard feelings towards him, great player on his day, big miss but hopefully can replace with a player just as good

Honestly believe he is overrated by so many. Stats only tell part of the story and he goes missing a lot of games.
If we get 80m then I’d take it in a heartbeat

Think we already knew that by watching his piss poor performances all season. Get rid of him and bring in someone who wants to wear the shirt

If that’s how he feels then time to move on. At least for once we’re in a position to replace and strengthen. Better days ahead for us.

He’s anyway not good enough if we want to move to the next level! Goes missing in matches far too often…

Time to sell for the best price. Could of done with him stepping up on several occasions this season and he has failed to do so. Whether that’s down to his head already being turned, I don’t know. We will be better off with players who want to be there #COYS #THFC
