Christian Eriksen & Barcelona
Here we go again…
Rumours have popped up in the Danish press on Monday linking Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen with a possible move Barcelona.
Of course, Eriksen-Barcelona rumours have beeb doing the rounds for some time.
Eriksen, who is contracted to Spurs until 2020, has also previously been very positive about Barcelona.
Telling Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet: “There are always rumours about soccer players and I am one of them. Barca is a great club and I do not think there are many players who can say ‘no’ to Barca.”
Tottenham & agent Bayram Tutumlu
So how likely is it that Eriksen will leave Spurs this summer?
Tottenham are still hoping to end the season by lifting the FA Cup before the move into their new stadium next season.
Yet, if agent Bayram Tutumlu has his way, Eriksen will leave Spurs soon.
But there’s a huge catch to this story. Bayram Tutumlu isn’t Eriksen’s agent – that job belongs to Martin Schoots.
Tutumlu talks to BT
Over the weekend Tutumlu gave an explosive interview to Danish paper BT.
As translated by Sport Witness, Tutumlu has talked about how he can help Eriksen join a big club, while the agent also claims to have recently met with Daniel Levy:
I was invited to see Christian Eriksen in London in September, even though he was having a renovation of the house, and here he asked me what to do to get to a bigger club.
I told him that a bigger club wants him. When I visited Barcelona with my associate Evren Sahin and Brøndby’s owner Jan Bech Andersen, Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu said that Christian Eriksen became the next big player from Denmark after Michael Laudrup. So I told Eriksen that Barcelona wants him.
I also told Christian Eriksen that Barcelona is looking at more things when buying a player, not just his football qualities. And it ended with the fact that they bought Coutinho instead. This is because alone, his agent (Martin Schoots) has destroyed it for him.
But I’m still talking with Christian Eriksen, and I’ve told him that if he wants a bigger club, it’s not going to happen through that agent. I do not want to mention his agent’s name because it hurts me as much as he has ruined Christian Eriksen.
Fortunately for Christian Eriksen, his father is a good guy who does not interfere in his career, such as Kasper Dolberg’s father does. Everything was ready for Kasper Dolberg to switch to a big Spanish club, but his father destroyed it. His father hurt him a lot. But I have warned Christian Eriksen to not make the same mistake as Daniel Agger.
It may be that the football world is huge for you, but it’s just a handful for me. I can find him a good club, as I have done with Michael Laudrup. I have also met with Tottenham’s chairman Daniel Levy a month ago, so I know what it takes for Christian Eriksen to move on.
