Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino and owner chairman Daniel Levy have mutually agreed to allow Christian Eriksen to leave if a suitable bid comes in.
That bid will have to be in the region of £50m though, with the Daily Mail claiming that is the compromise Levy has agreed with Pochettino with the European transfer window still open until the beginning of September.
The attacker has still been picked by Pochettino this season thus far but has made his feelings known throughout the summer that he is looking to move on to a club like Real Madrid if Spurs will let him go.
That seems to be a possibility for the Danish midfielder with the club’s latest stance, although no bid appears to be on the table thus far for the Spurs man.
Should a move to Madrid materialise for Eriksen he would be joining former Chelsea star Eden Hazard in the Spanish capital, with both players boasting favourable stats when it comes to both creating chances and scoring goals.
Hazard notched 16 Premier League goals last season while Eriksen got eight himself, with both players adding a further 27 assists between them throughout the campaign. Those stats highlight just how important Eriksen is to the Spurs cause, and manager Pochettino will know there will be a huge void to fill if he does leave.
This is going on and on and is potentially playing right into Real Madrid’s hands.
Spurs seem to be panicking and thinking of the repercussions of losing Eriksen for nothing next season when his contract expires.
He should have been sold before the English window closed if possible, with Spurs now stuck in terms of bringing in a replacement if they do decide to cash in on their man.
