Barely a day goes by on Tottenham Hotspur newsfeeds without midfield attacker Christian Eriksen being linked with a move away from the club and the words Real Madrid usually follow.
The 26-year-old has been in great form for us this season, scoring six times and assisting many more (eight) in his 26 games so far in the season of 2018/19.
With Eriksen figuring hugely on the rumour mill with the January transfer window now open, Danish outlet BT have him talking about the speculation, and not only does he flatly dismiss it and state that there’s ‘nothing in’ the Real Madrid speculation as far as he’s concerned, he also commented that both he and Spurs know what they ‘want’ and that talks on a new deal have been progressing nicely behind the scenes.
“It’s not something I’m thinking of. I’m focused on playing football, there are many games to think about and which must be won. It is not the first time that there have been rumours. When the newspapers write something, it is not something we are in control of. If there is nothing concrete, then I just comment on rumours. I think people know what I want, and I know what they (Tottenham) would like. There are good discussions ongoing so there is nothing there.”
Music to most fans ears I would imagine and whilst some will think Eriksen would say that, or he’s simply saying the right things, for me if there was more to the speculation, he wouldn’t have been that categorical.
