Eriksen: ‘I would like to try something new’

Eriksen’s contract with Spurs expires at the end of next season, and for months there have been rumours that the midfielder could leave north London.

Now, the Dane has fanned the flames, confirming that he wants a new challenge:

I feel that I am a place in my career where I might want to try something new.

I have the wildest and deepest respect for everything that has happened at Tottenham – I will not be negative. But I have also said that I would like to try something new.

I hope there will be a resolution during the summer. That’s the plan. 

In football you do not know when a resolution will happen. It can happen anytime. Everyone wants the best to happen as soon as possible, but in football takes things time.

It depends on Daniel Levy. And another club has to come (in with a transfer). Or I’ll have to sit down at the table and negotiate a new contract. You can’t set a date yourself.

There are not many points that Tottenham cannot meet. If I have to go, then hopefully it will be a step up.

Eriksen & Real Madrid

Eriksen then specifically discussed the rumours linking him with a possible move to Real Madrid:

It’s a step up. But it requires Real Madrid to call Tottenham and say they want Christian. And they have not done so yet, as far as I know.

It is hard. It depends on the possibilities. If nothing pops up that is more exciting, why not stay in Tottenham? If I then sign a new contract it will depend on the terms.
