Loads of Tottenham fans have been reacting to some comments from Christian Eriksen’s agent, who has told the club to forget contract talks until the end of the season.
Tottenham could undergo some major changes to the core of their squad this summer, with the likes of Eriksen and Toby Alderweireld both expected to attract interest from Europe’s elite once again.
Losing Eriksen in particular would hurt the club and fans to no end, as the 27 year-old has become integral to Mauricio Pochettino’s plans.

His current contract ends in the summer of 2020, meaning he could pull an Aaron Ramsey and negotiate a free transfer away from the club next January.
Now, Martin Schoots, the Dane’s agent, has revealed in an exclusive interview with ESPN that they will not engage in contract talks this season.
“Christian only wants to focus himself on football,” he said, as reported by Football.London.
“Besides his technical, tactical and athletic skills, also this attitude has contributed over the years to his impressive transformation from world class talent to world class player.
“At this moment I would prefer not to join the speculations about contracts and transfers.”
Eriksen has scored five times and added nine assists in the Premier League this season, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
Fine by me. I wouldn’t be signing either if I was inhis shoes. Wait and see. Still think good chance he’ll sign small 2-year extension.

I’d hope that if Christian decides to leave that he would sign an extension just to give us some leverage in negotiations when selling him

No need to worry at the moment. I can’t blame him for waiting, but he’s never once said he wants to leave. Imagine (and I know it’s a hell of a long shot) we moved into our new stadium, still with Poch, as CL winners, and having signed some real quality. I’m certain he’d stay.

I love him but based on his performances he probably doesnt have the consistency that big clubs would demand week in week out
