Christian Eriksen is yet to sign a new contract at Tottenham Hotspur, despite the fact that his current deal will expire at the end of next season.
Eriksen will certainly not be short of offers if he decides to leave Spurs, with Real Madrid and Barcelona previously credited with an interest.
The 26-year-old has been discussing his Tottenham future whilst on international duty with Denmark, and was asked by the media whether his recent omission from his club’s starting XI has something to do with the contract talks.
Indeed, Eriksen has not started a Premier League game for Spurs since September 22, although he has come off the bench in three of the last four.
A stomach injury is believed to be the reason why Tottenham have been taking it easy with Eriksen, and the 6ft ace did not seem too concerned when speaking to the media, as seen in the top tweet below.

Slightly out of context though is it not? The ‘media’ asked him if he was being left out because he’s not signed a new contract, it’s not something he brought up. He then replied with a tongue and cheek response… nothing to imply he doesn’t want to sign a contract.
