It would appear Christian Eriksen may have burnt too many bridges where some of the Tottenham Hotspur fans are concerned.
According to a report by Football.London, Spurs are thought to be willing to offer the playmaker a new contract worth around £200,000-a-week to convince him to stay at the club – a figure that would make him the joint highest earner alongside Harry Kane (Spotrac).
Despite having a rather solid campaign once again in the middle of the field last season, having scored 1o goals and provided his team-mates with 17 assists (Transfermarkt), you cannot hide away from the fact that he went missing at some of the most crucial times throughout the year.
And, let’s not forget about the comments he made to one of the media outlets in his home nation recently suggesting that he was ready for a ‘new challenge’ (Ekstra Bladet) amid interest from Real Madrid.
Although those comments do not appear to have put off the club from trying to tie him down to a new deal and eliminate the possibility of losing him for nothing next summer, it does not seem as though some of the fans have been in an equally forgiving mood.
After learning the news regarding a possible new contract, many of them took to Twitter to express their views – and they were not necessarily in favour of Eriksen.
Lots of them had stated that they would rather sell the Denmark international this summer and make a tidy transfer fee from his sale, whilst others simply felt his head had already been turned and he would be no use to them moving forward. Here are some of their reactions…
LET. HIM. GO.

He’s been a passenger last half of this season , if he thinks he’s ready for bigger things he (and others alike) perhaps should’ve turned up in the CL final instead of hiding.

Bad mistake, was really poor second half of last season
It’s about time we put proper left sided player in Eriksen’s position

I’d rather we cash in on him thanks, he’s served us well but his head has been elsewhere the last 6 months
