Christian Eriksen looks on his way out of Tottenham this summer after admitting in a recent interview that he was open to a fresh challenge. The 27-year-old has spent six years at the club and made 277 appearances in all competitions, scoring and creating 152 goals.

Eriksen has been linked with a move to Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United, but his next destination is unknown. The Danish international is out of contract in 2020 and could leave Tottenham for free next year if he isn’t sold or tied down to a new deal. Little progress has been made with negotiations, however.

According to Paul Jiggins of The Sun, Tottenham have offered Eriksen £7.8m-a-year/£150k-per-week to stay at the club past 2020. The playmaker isn’t close to putting pen to paper on an extension, but he did say in the previous interview that he’d commit his future to Spurs if he didn’t receive any better offers elsewhere.

Daniel Levy is running out of time to hash out Eriksen’s future. If he isn’t sold during the summer transfer window, foreign sides can agree pre-contract deals in January that will see him make the switch for free the following summer.  The window shuts at 5pm on Thursday, August 8.

Pochettino will need to have either agreed a new deal with Eriksen or at least sold him by then.

  • He will stay ONLY if no better offer comes in ” No Thank You” I love Eriksen and I wish him all the best in his career but not at Tottenham. His head and heart has already gone to Madrid, he has to go now as well. In saying that PSG are offering Draxler as part payment ‘hmmm’ one to think about anyway.

  • Quite frankly, It is time to offload Eriksen. In my view has had many terrific performances against the many lower level teams. Not so good, consistently, against the better teams. A quality player, however I feel there are younger players who are better and will bring a positive attitude to the club rather than have the depressive “I no longer want to be here” attitude. Whether we sell for £60 million or more the sale will realise a handsome profit for a fresh, young, energetic (Argentinian) midfielder? VERDICT: SELL and REPLACE

  • The reality of the situation is the player is in charge, if he wants to go to Madrid and they want him there is not a cat in hells chance of forcing him to go anywhere else. You either negotiate the best deal you can or run down his contract, there are no other options. The question is how badly do they want Eriksen, that will decide the price. I also think he’s not the player he was. Year on year his performance levels went up, then this season they went down for the first time. Whether that’s down to attitude or he’s reached his limits I have no idea. But either way he’s not going to do for us going forward what he’s done in the past. Of course no one actually says who this fantastic replacement for Eriksen actually is, imaginary players rule right ? In practice we may not replace him at all, we may reshape the formation. Remember Liverpool never replaced Coutinho and it didn’t do them any harm.

  • I was not impressed positively with No. 23’s effort in the CL final. So long, CE.
