Christian Eriksen has an uncertain future at Tottenham this summer. The 27-year-old has spoken out about his desire for a new challenge and talked up the prospect of joining Real Madrid. Los Blancos have set their sights on Paul Pogba, however, and won’t sign Eriksen unless they miss out on the former.

According to Joe Bernstein of the Daily Mail, the Danish international has interest from Manchester United, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid, but he’s running out of time to land himself a big-money move. Daniel Levy could sanction Eriksen’s sale if a suitor pays around £70m, but Spurs haven’t received any tempting bids.

Tottenham have offered the midfielder £200k-per-week to stay at the club, but Eriksen is yet to put pen to paper on an extension. He’ll be out of contract in 2020 and could leave the club for nothing if he isn’t sold before next year. With Spurs in a weak negotiating position, suitors may wait until the final days of the summer transfer window before lodging bids.

It’s surprising Eriksen hasn’t been the subject of many offers this summer, but interested clubs may be playing the waiting game – a tactic Levy often uses himself, to great effect.

  • But haven’t we been told repeatedly that only that idiot Levy leaves transfers late to drive down the price ? “big” clubs don’t do that ? Of course there’s always the possibility that the “interest” from all these clubs only exists in sports writers heads. In which case you’re busy covering a non story.

    • As usual, you’re absolutely right – no one outside N17 rates Eriksen or Alderweireld enough to pay more than peanuts for either, so it’s clearly a ‘non story’. The possibility that Levy might have got it wrong in either case is too ridiculous to discuss.

  • As is usual on this TW type stuff, jod is correct.

    There is not one thing in this article that explains anything that any single one of us or the author knows to be as fact. (Except that is the detail of his contract ending in 2020).

    What this article does do, is simply regurgitate a load of speculative (made up?) stuff that has been all too easily digested from elsewhere in the general media. What’s the point? Where is the original thought?

    Just asking!
