Barcelona & Christian Eriksen
Spanish daily AS have another instalment in the will he/won’t he saga involving Barcelona and Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen.
The Spanish press have been bleating on about Eriksen’s possible switch to the Camp Nou for months.
Eriksen is out of contract at Tottenham in 2020.
Just recently, Marca told their readers that Eriksen had a 250 million euro price tag.

However AS are now touting a new line: Eriksen’s price is deprecating daily, and that’s to Barcelona’s advantage.
Tottenham’s asking price is going down
Journalist Mario Cortegana made the following claims as to why Eirksen’s value is going down:
Every day that passes, faced with the risk that he’ll come on a free in a year and a half, the president of Tottenham is forced to lower his claims.
Cortegana tells his readers that Barcelona could sign Eriksen for between 50 and 75 million pounds.
Eriksen compared to Philippe Coutinho
Were Eriksen to join Barcelona for the prices mentioned about, he’d cost half as much as what Barcelona paid Liverpool for Philippe Coutinho.
Comparisons between Eriksen and Coutinho are rife in the AS report; a sign of the growing frustration with the Brazilian a year after his signing.
Age Hareide on Christian Eriksen
Danish paper BT have an interview with national team boss Age Hareide on Tuesday.
Much of the article is taking up with Hareide’s thoughts on Eriksen’s next move.
The Denmark coach was keen to sit on the fence when it came to making predictions:
Last time I talked to him (Christian Eriksen) nothing had happened. So I do not think there is anything new.
There is a lot of speculation, but nothing concrete.
The media hears something and they write about it, but how much is really real is hard to figure out. I think Christian thinks like that too, so I think he tries to stay away from it.
