Eriksen’s Spurs stint
Christian Eriksen joined Tottenham in August of 2013 from Dutch outfit Ajax.
Spurs are believed to have paid around £12m for Eriksen’s services.
Since making the switch to north London, Eriksen has gone on to become an integral member of Tottenham’s squad.
In total, the Dane has featured 288 times for Spurs, scoring 67 and assisting 87.
Eriksen & Real Madrid
However, this past summer, the midfield maestro cast doubt over his Spurs future, by stating that he may want to try something new:
“I feel I am at a place in my career where I might want to try something new.” As quoted by the Independent.
In the same interview, Eriksen mentioned Real Madrid by name, adding that they would mark a step up in his career:
“There are not many goals that Tottenham cannot meet. If I have to go, then hopefully it will be a step up. [Real Madrid] is a step up but it requires Real Madrid to call Tottenham and say they want Christian. And they have not done that yet, as far as I know.”
However, no move would materialise over the summer, with Eriksen still currently on Spurs’ books.
The midfielder now has less than a year remaining on his current Spurs contract, and should he not sign a new deal, Tottenham could lose him for free over the summer.
As a result, the Mirror are reporting that Tottenham will try to sell Eriksen to Real Madrid in January, so as not to lose him for free in the summer window:
Spurs hope to sell Christian Eriksen to Real Madrid in January to prevent him leaving for free next summer.
