According to Sky Sports, Christian Eriksen is set to remain with Tottenham Hotspur this summer and potentially even sign a new contract with the club.
Eriksen will see his current deal at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium expire at the end of the 2019-20 campaign.
The Denmark international continues to be linked with a move away from Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
However, according to Sky Sports, Real Madrid are now prioritising a move for Manchester United’s Paul Pogba, meaning that Eriksen is likely to remain with Spurs and sign a new deal with the capital outfit.
The former Ajax playmaker was not always at his best last season, but still managed 10 goals and 17 assists in all competitions for Pochettino’s team.

A number of Spurs fans have been on social media offering their views on the latest claim and it would be fair to say that there are a lot of mixed opinions.
A selection of the Twitter reaction can be seen below:
Would be as big a signing as Ndombele. Fans generally want the shiney new toy but Eriksen is proven quality.
And dont underestimate his work rate, covers approx 13km per game, essential to the way Poch plays. You cant just have a typical No10.

Hate that it’s being framed this way, but happy with the eventual outcome. Let’s hope the fans will get behind him, and we have a great season.#COYS

Is it just me that doesn’t mind if we get dybala or not? Personally don’t think we need him

So because no one else wants him, he’ll stay and sign a new contract?? Do we want players like that?

A good season and he’ll expect to be off and get all unhappy and distracted again.
Find a buyer for him asap.

He and @AlderweireldTob stay and sign new contract. Also we get Lo Celso and sessegnon. Beautifull transfer windows
