We all know how painful it is is when a club’s best players up sticks and move, and Christian Eriksen walking away from North London will be no different. Even more so if he goes to Manchester United, but it will be a means to an end in the long run, as a replacement would surely follow.
At this stage, we all know that Eriksen does not want to stay at Tottenham, but with Real Madrid’s interest in the Dane not steadfast, it could Manchester United that poach the attacking midfielder, according to ESPN, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to bolster his midfield.
The Lilywhites will hate saying goodbye to Eriksen just to see him on Match of the Day every Saturday evening in the red of Manchester United, but it will be made a whole lot more bearable should they bring in Giovani Lo Celso or Bruno Fernandes with the money they’d make from the ex-Ajax man.
Bruno Fernandes seems to be looking more and more likely to sign, with Portuguese journalist Goncalo Lopes claiming that the player had come to an agreement with Tottenham and it was now up to Sporting and Spurs to agree a fee.
Meanwhile, on the Giovani Lo Celso front, a transfer saga that has been rumbling on ever since it was reported that Real Betis rejected a £53m bid from Spurs back in May, The Sun have now claimed that Tottenham have sealed a deal for the Argentine worth £55m, so who knows what to believe.
Either way, if Eriksen does leave and one of the two of Lo Celso or Fernandes, or even both of the pair, come in to replace him, then the Lilywhites should be able to get past the idea of lining up against their Danish midfielder twice a season in the Premier League.
