Christian Eriksen’s future with Tottenham Hotspur is far from secure as the attacker continues to drag his heels over a new contract, according to AS.
Eriksen will see his contract with Tottenham expire at the end of next season and it is understood that talks over a new deal are not going too well.
The 26-year-old is one of the finest attacking midfielders in world football and he has been a revelation since arriving at Spurs in the summer of 2013.
The Denmark international is enjoying another strong campaign with six goals and nine assists in 27 appearances in all competitions.
Real Madrid and Barcelona have been strongly linked with a move for the 6ft ace, however, while AS have claimed that Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United are also closely monitoring developments.
It is looking increasingly likely that Eriksen will leave Tottenham in search of pastures new and his exit could be the start of a tough summer for the club.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been a sensation since replacing Jose Mourinho as head coach of Man United last month.
It is difficult to ignore Mauricio Pochettino’s work at Tottenham, however, and it seems that the Argentine is still the favourite to become Mourinho’s long-term successor.
Tottenham did not spend a single penny in last summer’s transfer window and there is no getting away from the fact that they simply cannot compete financially with the likes of Man United and Man City.
Losing Eriksen and Pochettino in one summer would be a huge blow for the club and could well lead to the likes of Dele Alli and Harry Kane questioning their futures. Toby Alderweireld, meanwhile, is sure to move on.
Tottenham’s form this season has been incredible when considering their lack of investment last summer, but the 2019-2020 campaign could be very different indeed.
