It’s now well-documented, Christian Eriksen has shown his hand, admitting he’s ready for a new challenge (speaking to Ekstrabladet, via Sky Sports) away from Tottenham. However, the Dane has perhaps dealt his cards too early and may now actually struggle to find anything representing a significant improvement.
Rumours circulated regarding Zinedine Zidane’s interest in the former Ajax wizard prior to his statement with AS claiming Daniel Levy had met with Florentino Perez in the build-up to the Champions League final amid interest in the player.
Still, such is the nature of the ever-churning rumour mill, it has later been claimed by Marca that Los Blancos are no longer interested in the creative midfielder, with journalist Tom McDermott (via The Sun) also reporting that Eriksen has turned down a proposed move to Manchester United.
It makes you think, where could Eriksen actually go?
The Sun stated that Eriksen turned the move down as he prefers a move to Spain. That’s all well and good and surely the idea of seeing such a good player leave for a different league rather than a domestic rival is more appealing to Spurs, but it doesn’t look as if the La Liga giants want him.
Right now, there doesn’t seem to be a natural move for the 27-year-old, unless he either changes his apparent stance on a move to Old Trafford or Madrid change their reported decision on him. Tough times.
So, with a move to a rival Premier League team seemingly unlikely, and links to the Bernabeu cooling down, that doesn’t leave all too many options to leave north London. Indeed, it must be stressed that he is still under contract with the Lilywhites, of course, but there does look to be a busy summer ahead for the club in terms of potential arrivals.
With Spurs now reportedly interested in both Giovani Lo Celso and Tanguy Ndombele, the Dane may find himself in trouble. Of course, he remains a top talent but if he isn’t fully committed to the cause, would Mauricio Pochettino seriously stick with him? There is always a chance, obviously, but perhaps Spurs’ summer business could leave him behind.
Tottenham fans, what do you think about the current Eriksen situation? Will he be at Tottenham next season? Comment below.
