Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy claims that he’s not afraid of selling wantaway star Christian Eriksen to a Premier League rival.
The Danish international is out of contract in the summer having failed to reach an agreement with Spurs and has been looking for a move away from North London since the summer transfer window.
With Eriksen being available for free on the summer, Levy is willing to let go off the midfielder so that the club avoid losing a star player for free.
Levy came out and spoke about the situation of renewing players’ contracts and stated that in order for the club to agree on a deal with the player, the player must be willing to do it and want to stay at Tottenham.
Eriksen has been long touted for a move away following the Lilywhites 2-0 loss to Liverpool in the Champions League final.
The former Ajax man has won the league title three titles in his career, but they were all with the Dutch side and has not won a trophy since his move to Spurs in 2013.
The playmaker is now 27 and is not looking to waste his prime years challenging for Champions League places especially considering the clubs who are interested in his services.
Odds of Christian Eriksen’s Next Club
3/1- Real Madrid
5/1- Manchester United
9/1- Inter Milan
12/1- Atletico Madrid
14/1- Paris Saint-Germain
European powerhouse Real Madrid have been the most rumoured destination for Eriksen since the beginning of the summer transfer window.
With Luka Modric and Toni Kroos both in their decline and ageing, Los Blancos manager Zinedine Zidane is looking to rejuvenate his midfield.
Eriksen has been a heavy favourite but so has Paul Pogba and if the Frenchman were to leave, Manchester United would also be interested in the midfielder.
Despite wanting to leave, Eriksen has featured in 13 of the 17 Premier League fixtures but has been used sparingly under new manager Jose Mourinho.
The former Chelsea boss is unsure of where Eriksen’s mindset is and thus, has only brought him on as a substitute rather than starting him.
The midfielder has not been playing has been as well as he has in previous seasons with the potential move away perhaps distracting him.
Eriksen has two goals and three assists in 19 appearances for the club, which is a far cry to what he has produced in seasons prior.
With the Dane misfiring, Spurs find themselves in 5th place and only 3 points away from top four, despite their disastrous start in the league.
